This short portion of the McKentrail takes you to the beautiful turquoise Tamolitch Pool, also known as Blue Pool. Beginning of this easy hike is through old growth Douglas fir forest. As the McKenzie river falls away you walk along the cliff. Eventually you come upon an old lava flow.

Did this trail last year and it is steep all the way but a good trail and well worth the effort at the top.

Great hike with beautiful views along the way. Nice to hike early when it's still cool.

Mckenzie Lava Flow And George Lake Trail

We hiked into George Lake from the Big Lake Trailhead. I have camped at Washington Ponds a number of times and always wanted to visit George Lake. The hike on the PCT is interesting since you walk through a variety of burned areas. The segment from the PCT to George Lake was very challenging. We used a GPS with coordinates we got from LatLong.net which helped. We headed in a bit too far west and came up high on the ridge. We hiked back out from farther east lower on the ridge that separates the lake from the PCT. Never found any trails in the area. Considerable burn and blow down damage in the area. We did find the lake very nice with a several good campsites on the west side of the lake.

Did this trail last week and combined it today with the Soda Creek Trail which leaves from the same parking lot. Streams are much more doable that last week but the beautiful flowers on the Soda Creek trail won't last long so if you're interested get out soon.

Be prepared for a miserable drive on a rough, jagged 2.5 mile road off the main road west of Sisters. Should not be attempted in a small vehicle. Once you get your offroading fix in and make it to the trailhead, the hike down to the base is short and the view really isn't that great--but read up on the hike before leaving so you know how and where to scramble to get to the real views, which make the experience slightly more worthwhile. I can name quite a few waterfall hikes I prefer, with a much less stressful drive to get there.

GREAT trail, we ended at the Dee Wright Observatory which is quite a pit-stop. Don't recommend bring the pup. Do bring a good and sturdy pair of shoes and a hat and sunblock, especially if it will be sunny/hot.
