Graham Corral is a delightful horse camp surrounded by miles of trails through a beautiful ponderosa pine forest. Located only 18 miles east of Santiam Pass (or 100 miles from Salem), Graham Corral is easily accessible for riders from the Willamette Valley. And it’s convenient for locals, too, since it’s only seven miles from Sisters.
The Metolius-Windigo Trail (the Met-Win) runs through the camp. The trail is signed with yellow trailblazer diamonds on the trees.
From Graham Corral, you can ride south to Sisters Cow Camp, an easy 13.5-mile ride.
Or you can follow the Met-Win north and then detour onto the trails used by the Black Butte Ranch horse-rental operation. These trails will take you to Glaze Meadow….
… or to the top of Gobblers Knob, which offers a splendid view of the Three Sisters.
You can detour off the Met-Win, cross Hwy. 20, and follow the Sisters Tie Trail to the town of Sisters, where you can get a fabulous burger or a milkshake made of house-made ice cream at the Sno-Cap Drive-In.
You can ride a loop to the treeless summit of Fourmile Butte, with its 360-degree panoramic views.
And you can do a long but scenic ride around Black Butte, enjoying the mountain vistas along the way.
Graham Corral has 11 sites, 4 of which have 4-horse corrals. The rest of the sites share four large corrals in the center of the camp and offer plenty of trees for highlining. It also features a manure bin and a toilet. The camp no longer has any water, though, so you'll need to bring water for both you and your horse.
Graham Corral has a lot of fun trails, so give it a try!
