"A long, round-trip day hike in the Three Sisters Wilderness. A backpack trip using Moraine Lake as a base camp is also a popular choice. Unlike several other routes that lead to the summit, the route from Moraine Lake is not a technical climb, just a long steep hike up the mountain.
Hikers attempting this climb should remember that this is a 10,000-foot mountain, subject to quick and sometimes violent weather changes, so pack accordingly. (Note: The climb is not technical in summer. If there is snow, bring ice axe and crampons and know how to use them.) You’ll see much of Oregon from the summit, including the other Sisters, North (10,094 feet) and Middle (10,053 feet). Once called Faith, Hope, and Charity by pioneer missionaries, these three lofty peaks dominate the 280,500-acre preserve and the surrounding region. Special attractions: Outstanding views from atop Oregon’s third highest peak."
