Metolius Springs forms the headwaters of the river at the base of Black Butte, a 3,076' cinder cone. The clear, cold river flows north from the springs through diverse coniferous forest and a landscape of volcanic activity.
The area provides habitat for mammals such as mule deer, coyote and cougar. Migratory birds and native fish also call the area home.
The Metolius-Windigo Trail begins near the Metolius River headwaters west of the town of Sisters. The trail is over 100 miles long and is open to hiking, biking and horseback riding. It was created in the 1980s by linking sections of existing trails, primarily to give long-distance horseback riders an alternative to the Pacific Crest Trail.
Hiking and fishing top the list of recreational activities at Camp Sherman Campground. Biking is a great way to see the area as well. Anglers enjoy fly-fishing for rainbow trout, whitefish, bull trout and kokanee salmon.
