    TAM MACARTHUR RIM

    by mtncorg Written Oct 13, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Central Oregon is laid out before you from atop the 7730-foot high rim. Volcanoes punctuate the far horizons - from Broken Top to Mt Adams in Washington State. The rim drops away directly from the top, so. be careful wandering along the edge. On a sunny, warm weekday in October, the inclination is to stretch out in the sunshine and ponder the view.

    TAM MACARTHUR TRAIL

    by mtncorg Updated Oct 13, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Lewis 'Tam' MacArthur was chairman of the Oregon Geographic Names Board for much of the early part of the 20th Century. Such a position should garner some kind of benefit or memorial and it is this grand escarpment coming off the eastern ridges of Broken Top, just south of Sisters, that remembers Tam. The ridge towers over 1000 feet above Three Creek Lake and offers long reaching vistas. The trail is reasonably easy, covering the 1200 feet rise in about 2 ½ miles. Along the way you have viewpoints which let you spy the crest of the rim ahead, along with far off volcanoes spiking out of the forests.

    THREE CREEK LAKE

    by mtncorg Written Oct 13, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Three Creek Lake, lying at 6550 feet high, sits below the Tam MacArthur Rim. It is a popular destination for campers with two campgrounds - Driftwood and Three Creek Lake - spread out along its banks. No motorized boats are allowed. There is an anchored swimming dock in the middle of the lake. There is also a seasonal small store along the east bank of the lake. It is a nice destination in of itself, or as a starting point for hiking to the Rim above.
