“Winter Wonderland ”
Review of Metolius River

Attraction details
Reviewed 1 January 2018 via mobile

Hiking along the Metolius River after a light snowfall is magical. There is a nice out and back four mile walk starting at the Camp Sherman general store. Well marked paths. Great views of the forest and Black Butte.

Date of experience: January 2018

Every time I come to Central Oregon I always stop here, as I have been doing for over 30 years. Its a serene place, beautiful and well maintained. Oh and if you bring peanuts the chipmunks will literally come out and take them from your hand. Its quite a show.

We went to the head of the Metolius River which flows out of a hillside. From the parking lot it is a relatively short walk along a paved path. There is no access to the river itself from this location. To get to the water you need to go to Camp Sherman. But, the views of the river are beautiful and you can see the snow capped mountains in the distance.

Well this place was fun, after parking your car at the head of the Mitolius, there is a short walk to the actual head of the river that comes from the center of the Earth. You can see all these chipmunks in the summer playing around with you curious for food. Then you can see the river coming from the ground and all this water running down hill. Then you can make a stop at Camp Sherman and it is all so full of nature. Amazing place. Magical.
