\nWildflowers abound throughout the year with a spectacularly colorful display every spring which lasts well into June.\n

\nEvidence of a unique geological event, the 19th century slide which created the lake is easily observed at the lower end of the lake where scores of trees which rode down on the glide grow at odd angles. The headwall of the slide can also be visited via the Magone Slide Trail #353.","post_name":"magone-lake-trail","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"44.5496","lng":"-118.911","distance":"22.5","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/hiking\/magone-lake-trail\/","terms":"a Hiking<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},{"ID":"6973","post_title":"Magone Slide Trail","post_content":"In addition to the hundreds of large ponderosa pine growing at strange angles, evidence of the slide can be observed in the slope where terraces were formed by slumping.\n

\nViewpoint B ends atop the largest of the slump block terraces affording an excellent view of the bare rock face from which the slide originated. Viewpoint A is also located at the top of a slump block terrace, affording a spectacular vista of the Strawberry Mountains to the south across the John Day valley.\n

\nBecause the trail is generally quiet, deer and a variety of birds, including the unique pileated woodpecker, are often observed.\n

\nWildflowers can be found throughout the year with the most spectacular displaying beginning in the spring and continuing well into June.","post_name":"magone-slide-trail","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"44.5551","lng":"-118.907","distance":"22.7","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/hiking\/magone-slide-trail\/","terms":"a Hiking<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},{"ID":"6974","post_title":"Magone Lake","post_content":"To make reservations for the Group Camping Area or the Group Picnic Shelter go to the Reserve America Reservation System http:\/\/www.reserveusa.com or call (877) 444-6777 (toll free). \n

Magone Lake Campground will be closed while we are upgrading and replacing the water system starting August 14, 2006 through September 15, 2006. During this time the public will not be allowed to enter the campground due to open trenches and the many hazards associated with heavy equipment moving around.

Attractions: This scenic trail offers a number of outstanding vistas from rocky crags and cliffs overlooking a great deal of the drainage basin of the East Fork of Beech Creek and the John Day Valley.
