This trail is harmless enough. This is just a five-minute walk to the source of the Metolius River, and the view is nice and pleasant, but hardly spectacular. The whole thing will take you 15 minutes, including time to enjoy the view, and I just can't see anyone seeing this as any type of destination trail.

Very short and easy hike to a postcard-perfect view of river, meadow, mountain. Good experience for children to see one way in which rivers form. Consider pairing with other walks along the Metolius.
