From the McKenzie River Ranger Station, drive east on Highway 126 about ╝ mile to Road 2643 (Foley Road). Take Road 2643 about 8-1/2 miles to Road 480. Continue driving for about 2 miles to the trailhead, which sits at the end of the road. There are quite a few parking spaces, and the road stays in good condition throughout the drive.

Trail Description

On the western flank of the Three Sisters lies a spectacular high-elevation park-like area sprinkled with meadows, lakes, and clear streams with great mountain views. This route rises through the heavily wooded area of the western Three Sisters Wilderness and emerges into this beautiful landscape.

Mile 0
0.0.The trail begins in dense trees of a more recent logging activity, but within a quarter mile, with the arrival of the wilderness boundary, they give way to much older trees, and a much more open forest. The trail descends slightly through the woods until it meets a trail fork.

Mile 1
1.0At the trail intersection, turn left (east), and follow the trail as it climbs through the woods. The trail grade stays pretty tame, rising slightly for the next several miles. There are no real views through this stretch, but it is a pleasant forest.

Mile 6.5
The trail reaches a very nice moss-lined lake sitting below a rocky outcropping. Immediately after, the trail descends.

Mile 6.75
The trail reaches the beginnings of Buck Meadows. Of course, the mosquitoes were incredibly heavy through this stretch of trail. The meadows were nice, with some views towards The Husband, a 7,500' peak, towards the northern end of the meadows. The trail can be a little difficult to find towards the northern end of the meadows. There is a campsite in the trees on the extreme northern edge, which the trail skirts around the northwestern corner of.

Mile 7.75
Just north of the meadows, the trail reaches an intersection, take the northern route (if you were able to follow the trail all the way to this point, it will be trail to the left). This route climbs out of the valley for three quarters of a mile.

Mile 8.5
The trail reaches the Foley Ridge Trail. Turn right (east), and follow this trail as the setting becomes more and more alpine. The trail doesn't reach treeline, but views of the Sisters do appear through the more studded trees. Lots of small lakes, ponds, and wildflowers dot the landscape.

Mile 11
Large trail section at the southern end of a large, flat plain. Take the left fork, heading north through the open country. The trail will begin to descend slightly through this nice alpine area. You will pass by a fairly large meltwater pond before arriving at Husband Lake.

Mile 12
Husband Lake ľ there are a couple campsites around the lake. Eileen Lake, which sits about a mile north of Husband Lake is also quite nice and has a couple of campsites.

The lake doesn't really work as a loop trip in itself. If creative, I think you could do some loop trips, or lollipop loop trips. For instance, if you were doing the larger loop trip around the three sisters, this would be a good side trip.

Can you add this to another trail and make a loop?
