This popular hike parallels enchanting Fall Creek and leads you to the Green Lakes Basin. You can admire this group of high Cascade lakes and also enjoy views of South Sister and Broken Top. This popular route takes you on a tour of the Three Sisters Wilderness along the banks of charming Fall Creek. This boulder-strewn creek is filled with beautiful waterfalls around almost every bend. You’ll follow the wide, dirt path along the banks of the creek through a fragrant forest. The trail also affords views of the Newberry Lava Flow, which erupted from the southeast side of South Sister—youngest of the Three Sisters volcanoes.
