Whether you start your hike at the base of the resort (elevation 6,300), or take the Express Quad chairlift to mid-mountain, you are bound for an adventure! Day hikes cover a wide variety of abilities, are well-marked, and patrollers are available to assist you at mid-mountain. Hike through forests of lodge-pole pine, mountain hemlock, and white bark pine to enjoy scenic views of the High Cascade Range of Central Oregon, the Cascade Lakes, and Deschutes National Forest from the top.


Take the chairlift to the first hole of Mt. Bachelor's PDGA-listed, 18-hole disc golf course for an exciting day at a challenging new sport. The course traverses varied terrain to the last hole at the base of the resort.


Learn about the geological and historical story behind Mount Bachelor and the surrounding area from a knowledgeable source.


Sunset dinners are offered at the mid-mountain lodge during the months of July and August. Twilight dinners are a Labor Day weekend tradition, and mark the end of Mt. Bachelor Resort's summer season.
