Some Hike Options at Alderfer and Three Sisters Park

A Short Family Like:

The Wild Iris Loop (.6 mile loop) is a tame stroll through mountain meadows and can be easily accessed from the west parking lot.

Two hikes that are more strenuous

will take hikers to summit views: Evergreen Mountain East Trail, and the Sisters Trail. The Sisters trail may be the most difficult and most enjoyable in the park. The trail takes you up through three, unusual rock outcroppings and to views down into the quaint town of Evergreen.

A 10+ mile loop hike

can be created by hiking the trails that follow the outer rim of the park. Because the park has so many trails, it’s advisable to download the Alderfer Three Sisters Park Map (see link in the above trail snapshot).
