As far as river trails go, this is not one of the better ones in Central Oregon. The flat 6.4 mile there-and-back trail meanders around but keeps a pretty safe distance from the water until the very end, where the turnaround point gives you a nice chance to sit by the shore--which isn't even that impressive since the river is so quiet and still. The scenery is standard high desert wilderness fare, and somewhat dull. The trail is relatively secluded, but it does march right through a campground so on busy camping weekends it may be best to avoid. If you're visiting Sunriver and looking for a healthy walk this is a good one in close proximity, but I wouldn't call this a destination hike at all.
