Tumalo Loop Road Professional Review and Guide

"Only 10 miles west of Bend, the Tumalo Creek area offers easy beginner trails, unique scenery, and relative solitude. An easy road tour follows Tumalo Creek through a broad, open valley, culminating at the base of 97-foot-high Tumalo Falls. The route to the falls passes a large burn area.

In 1979, the Bridge Creek Fire, started by a campfire, destroyed more than 4000 acres of old-growth forest in the Bridge Creek Watershed. The area has been replanted with ponderosa pine, but growth is slow and the new trees are still small. Unfortunately, snow conditions are unreliable here. This valley does not get a lot of snow, and the snow melts quickly in warm weather. Try to visit after a recent snowfall. Track Quality: Good classic skiing, no skating"
