Tumalo Mountain is a shield volcano in the Cascade Range of central Oregon, located just northeast of Mount Bachelor across the Cascade Lakes Scenic Byway. Ice Age glaciers carved a large cirque into the northeast flank of the mountain, producing a bowl which is popular with local backcountry skiers. A United States Forest Service fire lookout tower was built on the summit in the 1930s, but abandoned in the 1970s and subsequently removed. A trail to the summit ascends the southwest flank of the volcano.For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Redmond holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Tumalo Mountain and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

Great elevation gain in a short distance (2 miles/*4 total). Beautiful views of the Cascades and buttes!
The view FROM this place is amazing, the view OF this place is amazing its a good, challenging hike and it's worth every step! If you don't have a ton of time to get out for a hike, the proximity to town and the views you get make this hike unbeatable. Truly worth it!
