Guided Hikes with Obsidians

A visit to the great outdoors can do wonders for the mind and body. Explore our area on these guided group hikes offered in partnership with Obsidians. Hike leaders will provide guidance and narration on the hike. Transportation and water are included.

McKenzie River Waterfall Loop Hike: Enjoy stunning blue-green pools along both sides of the McKenzie River as it plunges over  Sahalie and Koosah Falls down to Carmen Reservoir.   You loop both falls from both sides of the McKenzie River.    This makes for a rewarding beginner's hike, which begs you to stop often to appreciate the stunning beauty along its path. Three miles, 400-foot elevation.

Erma Bell Lakes Hike: Erma Bells Lake and waterfalls hike is an easy 4.2-mile round trip. We will travel on fairly even ground through a wooded area for 1.5 miles to lower Erma Bell Lake for a short break where we can view the steep banks, deep waters, and volcanic flows of the past. Next, we are off to the moss-covered rocks and splashing waters of Middle Erma Bell waterfalls. Pushing forward to Middle Erma Bell lake, which is a much shallower lake with a beach-like area, where if inclined you can wade in the cool waters.
