a hike to the summit. im pretty sure some of the people i saw climbing it were ultra-runner moms and dads doing it in running shoes in as fast of a time possilbe before they pick up their kids from soccer practice (good for them because it is loose and steep at points). but even if your visiting bend for a weekend this is an easy one to get to and do and has an amazing view. I did it last year in running shoes. had a friend do it the same weekend a year later and used snow shoes so plan accordingly Aug 15, 2016
