Linton Lake Three Sisters Wilderness

Linton Lake (Three Sisters Wilderness) Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This easy to moderate trail visits a beautiful, fishable, eighty acre lake dammed by a large lava flow and surrounded on three sides by steep, forested slopes. Hikers can catch glimpses of Linton Falls, at the far end of the lake, in an area inaccessible by trail. By some measurements, Linton Falls is 615 feet high, making it nearly as high as Multnomah Falls, Oregon’s highest.

From the wooden steps at the trailhead across the highway
from the campground, follow the path through a fairly young and open forest of Douglas-fir, western white pine, western hemlock, and western redcedar, with rhododendron and Douglas maple in the understory. The path is mostly level for the first 0.5 mile. At mile 0.6 it begins climbing, and at mile 0.7 it meets a side trail (see Options below)."
