The entire hike around the 3 Sisters is fantastic. The most scenic begins at the lake just north of the north sister and is part of the Pacific Crest Trail skirting the West side of the three mountains. Their names are Faith, Hope and Charity. The views are breathtaking and Obscidian Falls is georgeous. The trail up the South sister, Oregon's 2nd tallest mountain is gentle. The hike is demanding and water can be scarce on some of it.

I was utterly surprised to read that the Three Sisters area was not more popular. Despite the drive (2 1/2 hrs. minimum), Three Sisters Wilderness offers an amazing variety of flora, fauna and scenery. While it is true that some areas suffer from overuse and crowds, I have discovered that there are many more places which offer solitude. I might try the western trails that begin near Cougar Reservoir outside of Eugene, or the southern trails near Wickiup Reservoir. My personal favourites include the lava fields of McKenzie Pass and the trails near Century Drive. I would avoid the Scott Lake/Sunshine Camp area on summer weekends, where crowds obliterate any sense of isolation. Regardless of the time of year or the number of people, I find that Three Sisters will humble the most hardened cynic (trust me). Go ahead...buy a map, pack your gear and find what you've been missing.
