Planing on going to Bend next weekend. Know any good nature places to go to with a nice view?

There are many nature places with great views around here! Some of my favorites are covered in snow at the moment – Tumalo Mountain is one. But Pilot Butte State Park is right in Bend and offers great 360 degree views of the city, mountains, desert and surounds. Up north a bit, Smith Rock State Park is a superbly beautiful natural area with incredible views, also of the mountains and desert as well as the Crooked River. Let me know if you have any other questions or want more info! Have a great time!

We are traveling to Central Oregon in early September from Scotland. We like Country and Western music and traditional jazz – and would like to know if there is a special site to go looking for places.

I am so pleased you’ll be visiting our amazing state. And September is the very best month to do so, in my humble opinion. Here in Central Oregon the skies are a bit clearer and warmer than the rest of the state. And while it can be tricky to find this regions’ roots buried under the growth and culture that has come our way in the last decades, country/western is where we began! You can still wear cowboy boots and find bluegrass and country music in these parts. I suggest you check out one of our ranch-style resorts – Black Butte Ranch, Brasada Ranch, Suttle Lake resort, or Five Pine resort – for an authentic western experience. Have a wonderful time!

Any suggestions on what I should stop and get pics of enroute to LaPine? What is great that direction this time of year?

Smith Rock is stunning, as are Dillon&Benham Falls on the Deschutes. Detour up Century Drive to view the snowy Cascades! Bend’s Drake Park is lovely this time of year. Trees with fall foliage by the river. Good excuse to grab lunch downtown, too.

I’m looking for family friendly bike rides (paved) for my family when I go to Central Oregon later this month. I have an 8 & 10 year old, so nothing too strenuous for the little ones. A reward (read: ice cream & beer) nearby–all the better!

The Old Mill District has some great paved easy biking trails along the Deschutes with great views. They even rent bikes and surreys there. Nothing too long but that might suit your purposes! And there’s plenty of ice cream and beer nearby, as well as a movie theatre.

Best snowshoeing in Central Oregon? We need to work off the big ol’ dinner we’re gonna eat at Cowboy Dinner Tree over New Year’s.

Hey hey Lady Andrea! There are some amazing trails in Central Oregon Two questions: 1. Where in Central Oregon will you be staying? 2. Over ten miles round trip or under? FYI I am Asit Rathod aka President of Powder for Ask Oregon. Born and raised here in Oregon and love snow so much it has been the only long term relationship in my adult life.
