“A somewhat "urban" trail that provides and escape from the Mazama Campground.”— Mikhaila Redovian
This trail is a tale of two routes, and you'll either be skirting the rim of the canyon, or you'll be following along Annie Creek. Starting from the official trailhead and moving counter-clockwise, you'll enjoy a few moments of the canyon rim before the trail switchbacks down through the canyon to meet the creek.
Follow the creek upstream, enjoying the cooler temperatures and shade provided by the dense coniferous forests. Lodgepole pines dominate here, but you'll be able to see hemlock and fir interspersed as well. After about a mile, you'll find your route leading you back to the canyon rim, the campground, and civilization.
From there, work your way back to either your car or your campsite, having enjoyed a brief outing in the woods.
Visitors can also cut this loop short by using one of two cutoff trails, located in the northern portion of the loop.
