The Metolius-Windigo trail is over 100 miles long and begins in the north at the Mt. Jefferson Wilderness and runs all the way south to Windigo Pass near Crescent Lake. To minimize confusion the “Met-Win” trail — as it’s often called — is broken into distinct segments each with its own character.
The segment on this page runs for about 7 miles between the Mrazek junction to Three Creeks Meadow.
The Metolius-Windigo gets a lot of use by horses and can be quite sandy — especially in late summer. This section has equal amounts of climbing and descending — with almost 1000′ of each before reaching Three Creeks Meadow.
