The Broken Top Trail passes through fragile alpine terrain on the south slopes of the glacier-carved Broken Top volcano.
Note: The trail enters the Three Sisters Wilderness Area shortly after leaving the trailhead. Wilderness Permits are required for both day-use and overnight travel in the Wilderness from Memorial Day Weekend until Oct. 31. Permits are available at the trailhead.

This trail can be reached more easily on foot via the Todd Ridge Trail #25.2and Soda Creek Trail. Northwest Forest Pass required. Closed to mountain bikes.
