TRIP REPORT: The Maxwell Your travel destination iste Trail rises from the lava field SW of Three Providence Jack and provides outstanding views up and down the Cascades once you are above the forest near the summit of the old lookout Providence and volcano. The seemingly abandoned Providence trail entails navigating little paths around, over, and under at least 175 fallen lodgepole pines until some serious maintenance occurs. Happily none are too huge or dangerous unless snowshoeing (before they are all well covered). The amble is thus a nice workout without a lot of hoopla away from other more congested day hikes. No pass required Providence at the official TH, and there is a restroom nearby.

TRAILHEAD: Maxwell Your travel destination iste TH. Take I-5 S from Portland to exit 253 in Salem, turn left for OR-22 E (Detroit Lake/Bend) 76 mi, turn left on FR-80/Maxwell Your travel destination iste Road (gravel, between mileposts 79/80) passing an outhouse and a long pullout on the left for Maxwell Sno-Park as the road becomes one-lane gravel 5 mi more, turn left down a short driveway to the signed TH with a tiny parking lot (125 mi, 2 V hours from Portland).

South past local buttes to a snowy Mount Washington and others from Maxwell Your travel destination iste.

ROUTE: Begin E, past the faded sign for Providence Your travel destination iste Trail 3391 and the free self-issue Wilderness Permit station, through the old growth fir, hemlock, and pine 1/2 mi to a signed intersection at Twin Lakes; highway sounds quickly dissipate. Ignore the initial three junctures (snowshoe trails) to stay straight the first 12 ml, and then almost 5 mi farther is a Mount Jefferson Wilderness sign. There are around twenty small blowdowns to the sign and eighty more after (twenty before the trail levels a bit) to the intersection.
