The Metolius-Windigo Trail goes from the head of the Metolius River in the Sisters Ranger District, across the Bend-Fort Rock Ranger District and then down to Windigo Pass in the Crescent Ranger District. Along the way, especially in the Bend-Fort Rock Ranger District, it follows other trails to form a continuous route from north to south. A good map of the route of this trail is essential when planning a trip from start to finish.
