Take the north side of this trail east for a rolling, sometimes rocky, descent to Swede Shelter where you have some great views of Broken Top and South Sister across Tumalo Canyon.
Then, after nearly making a U-turn, the southern leg of the trail (Swede Ridge Loop
) returns you to the Swampy Loop
on a slightly less rocky ascent through some pretty coniferous forest.
Take a left when you reconnect with the Swampy Loop
to head back to the parking area.
