As often happens in the High Cascades, the very best wildflower bloom is often accompanied by the most mosquitoes (following the snowmelt). Therefore, you should carry bug spray.
NOTE: Due to its proximity to Bend, this trail attracts hundreds of visitors each day on summer weekends. If you like solitude, you might want to consider visiting on a weekday.
NOTE: There are two trailheads leading from the parking lot. Take the trail at the north end (closest to the kiosk).
