Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This hike takes you along the banks of scenic Whychus Creek past small waterfalls and big rock pools in a gorgeous ponderosa pine forest.

This trail travels parallel to the scenic, 41-mile- long Whychus Creek (formally called Squaw Creek). The name Whychus (pronounced why- choose) is derived from the Sahaptin language and means “the place we cross the water.”The source of this creek is at the base of the Three Sisters Mountains, and it flows through the Deschutes Basin until it joins the Deschutes River near Lake Billy Chinook."
