Broken Top Trailhead

Three hikers, Marge Kocher, front, Bob Speik and Paul Curley, crossing the creek, head toward Broken Top in August 2005.

Forest Road 370, a popular backroad into the Three Sisters Wilderness and the Broken Top Trailhead, opens to the public on Wednesday.

Bend-Fort Rock Ranger District officials will open the gate at Todd Lake, allowing access to the rough road, which is only drivable with a high clearance four-wheel drive vehicle. Drivers are asked to only drive on the roadway and avoid degrading vegetation and the landscape.
