The highest point in the Chehalem Mountains offers scenic views of the Coast range and Cascade peaks. Steller's Jay and Red-breasted Nuthatch are resident in the mature Douglas-firs, and Varied Thrush and Townsend's Warbler can be found in winter and early spring. The brushy edges of the park lawns can be a magnet for migrant songbirds in spring. In mid- to late April, walk Bald Peak Rd along the ridgeline (being careful of cars) to check the budding big-leaf maples for warblers, vireos, and other migrant songbirds. Clearcut areas below the park are home to nesting White-crowned Sparrows.

Skinner Butte is the Willamette Valley's best spring migration site for songbirds. A loop trail and improved foot paths provide excellent birding opportunities through coniferous forests on the N slope and mixed deciduous forest and woodland on the S slope. During the migration season, practically any species of songbird that occurs in the Willamette Valley can be found here. On some days during migration, 'fallouts' occur with dozens of flycatchers, warblers, vireos, and tanagers showing up for the day. Bald Eagle, Cooper's Hawk, and Osprey nest on the butte. The park has facilities to accommodate large numbers of visitors and provides excellent views of Eugene.

This park is along the Long Tom River, which flows from the spillway of Fern Ridge Dam, just across Clear Lake Rd. Oak and Oregon ash dominate the habitat, with willows along the margins of several ponds. Kirk Pond, the large shallow pond along the N side of Clear Lake Rd, hosts large flocks of American Wigeon in winter, usually with a few Eurasian Wigeon, Canvasback, and sometimes more rare ducks. In winter, the spillway attracts numerous gulls, and Great Egrets line the river. Cliff Swallows nest here in spring. The predawn fly-out of Tundra Swan flocks from winter roosts on the reservoir is a spectacle worth seeing and hearing. From the top of the earthen dam, scope the lake for gulls, terns, and (rarely) jaegers. In spring, watch for Bald Eagle and for Osprey carrying fish to their nest. Listen for rails in the marshy areas, and Wrentit along riparian edges in the park. Camping is available at nearby Richardson Park.

Fifty years ago, the Santiam Golf Course was barely a dream. A group of seven men from the Sublimity, Aumsville and Stayton communities were instrumental in transforming their vision of a community golf course into a reality. These men wanted the golf facility to provide good golf, fun and entertainment for the families and friends of the area and to always remain affordable in price. In the meantime, inquiries to the Chamber of Commerce regarding golf facilities in the immediate area were becoming more frequent. Fortunately, a landowner of approximately 110 acres, Norm Peak, posted his land for sale. And after some negotiations, a deal was struck and arrangements to purchase the land were under way. Bill Gehlen, an attorney, filed the necessary papers with the Oregon Secretary of State recording Santiam Golf Club as a non-profit corporation, thus becoming Santiam Golf Club, Inc. Shares of stock at $257, plus 40 hours of labor, were offered to those closest to the project. After that, shares were sold at approximately $350 per share with the same 40 hours of donated labor attached as a condition of share purchase price. On March 4, 1957, these seven founders: A.J. Frank, Roy Phillipi, William Gehlen, John D. Davis, Walter D. Miller, Harmon Drushella and M. L. Morey, all golfers, were recorded as the first directors of the new corporation they had founded and directed. Although, originally, the Santiam Golf Club board consisted of 12 members, this number created too much confusion and eventually the board membership was lowered to seven members. The land was covered with brush and small trees. The designer of the course, Fred Federspiel, a golf architect, along with a couple of the founders, walked the land laying out the placement of the tees and greens according to the course blueprint. Bill Rauscher, a nearby neighbor, was hired to use his small “Cat” with a heavy disc to break up the soil and tear up roots. Stockholders of the new organization formed a human line across the fairways to pick up sticks and roots, which they moved down the line into a pile and later burned. They did this on all fairways of the original nine. Most of this work was done evenings after the regular workday. Rauscher used his small Cat to push soil together to form the basic greens and tees. Then teams of five or six men per green with shovels were assigned to form final shapes. The greens surfaces were spaded to the depth of the shovel and to facilitate cup placements in the finished greens all rocks were removed down to the size of pea gravel. The work went along throughout the summer. In or about September, Rauscher formed the newly cleared fairways and roughs. The grass seed was sown on all the worked surfaces and the greens were ready for play the forthcoming spring! While the course was being prepared, the first clubhouse was being built. Luther Nokelby, with the help of other stockholders, was in charge of construction. The building consisted of a pro shop, storage area, small kitchen, coffee bar and clubroom. Sometime after the first nine opened a dining room named the Sandtrap was added. In the early 1960s, the board approved the expansion of the course to eighteen holes. To finance the cost of the new nine, a loan of $40,000 was secured from First National Bank of Oregon. George Shafer, the first greenskeeper, and board President Ralph Lulay, along with architect, Federspiel, walked the grounds for the new nine marking the placement of the new tees and greens. The brush was beaten down with Rauscher’s heavy disc to begin clearing the terrain. A large Cat and scraper were brought in to do the earth moving. The ground was covered with rocks, so the first process was to pick up rocks mechanically and deposit them under the greens to be built. The soil that was to form the greens was dug up from a couple of deep ditches which earlier had been dug to help prevent water from running across the fairways. Topsoil was also obtained from land near the highway. Shafer, who closely monitored the forming of the greens was also instrumental in shaping the lake along the 5th fairway, this lake ultimately named “Lake George”. Some fairways were renumbered and the new holes became predominantly the front nine. The eighteen-hole course was amazingly ready for play the following summer! Several years later, in February 1967, as recommended by the accounting firm of Arthur Young & Co., the articles of incorporation were amended to establish the corporation as a “for profit” company. In the following May, the golf club purchased 17 adjoining acres from Clarence Zuber. Two years later, in 1970, a liquor license was acquired. The clubhouse has gone through several alterations and changes in cuisine. Following a clubhouse fire in 1980, Kay Kelly built a larger and more adequate clubhouse and restaurant. The first new restaurant managers were Kent Hazelwood and Paul Hartwell. The restaurant was named the Ford Garage. This was followed by Mara’s (an Italian cuisine), then LaEstrellita’s Mexican Restaurant, and is currently The Santiam Steak House. The facility is now complete with a seating capacity of 180; including a sunroom and patio area catering to tournaments, special parties, banquets and wedding receptions. There have been many improvements in recent years. All the greens have been re-modeled to USGA standards. Computerized irrigation has since been strategically installed. A new, large maintenance building, cart shed and many other on-course improvements, including concrete and\/or paved cart paths along all fairways have added to our movement into the 21st century. . Many improvements on the second nine were completed with the use of heavy equipment donated by Frank Lumber Co., Lulay Bros. Lumber Co., Roy Philippi, “Dutch” Deetz and others. Stockholders have contributed many hours of volunteer labor. The pro-shop is now fully-equipped, sporting the latest golf merchandise and attire. For several years, Jack White, the first golf pro, oversaw the facility. Jack Coppedge, the 6th Santiam Golf Club professional held the position for many years until his death in 1997. Sporadic remodeling continues and the building has undergone many major interior improvements and has recently been crowned with a new roof. The driving range and the parking lot have been expanded to facilitate tournament crowds. The corporation, owned by 306 plus stockholders, holds its annual meeting in the company banquet room, whereas in compliance with the company by-laws, an incumbent director whose 3-year term is up, is either voted back in by the stockholders or is succeeded by a new director to hold sacred the voice and interests of the stockholders and the corporation and to not lose sight of the original dream of the founding fathers. The founding fathers would be so proud to see that the beautiful Santiam Golf Club, Inc., has flourished to 21st century standards and that their vision of an affordable, family-oriented entertainment facility continues to be upheld to this day.<\/p>","post_name":"santiam-golf-club","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"44.8253","lng":"-122.823","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/golf\/oregon-adventurecation\/santiam-golf-club\/","terms":"an Oregon Adventurecation<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},"121":{"ID":"8991","post_title":"Ethan Nickel Guide Service","post_content":"","post_name":"ethan-nickel-guide-service","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"44.04","lng":"-123.366","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/guides-charters-recreation\/fishing-guides-charters\/ethan-nickel-guide-service\/","terms":"a Guides & Charter<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},"122":{"ID":"9651","post_title":"Teds Bassin Guide Service","post_content":"","post_name":"teds-bassin-guide-service","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"44.8912","lng":"-123.066","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/guides-charters-recreation\/fishing-guides-charters\/teds-bassin-guide-service\/","terms":"a Guides & Charter<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},"123":{"ID":"9731","post_title":"Wild Water Adventures","post_content":"Perfect for the family and fun for all generations.

At 4,097 ft, this mountain - known as Chintimini to native people of the region - is the highest point in the Coast Range. The summit offers panoramic views of the Willamette Valley, Coast Range, the Cascades, and even the Pacific Ocean. It draws alpine species not found elsewhere in the Willamette Valley, including wintering flocks of Gray-crowned Rosy-Finch (arriving in Nov), migrant American Pipit and Horned Lark, and occasional Snow Bunting. Mature stands of noble fir and extensive grassy meadows are unique for the central Coast Range. Species that are typical of open forests on the east slope of the Oregon Cascades, such as Clark's Nutcracker and Mountain Chickadee, are found occasionally as vagrants, and some such as Townsend's Solitaire may nest. Resident birds more typical of the Pacific Northwest forests include Mountain Quail, Northern Pygmy-Owl, Gray Jay, and Red Crossbill. In nesting season these are joined by Hammond's Flycatcher and Hermit Warbler. This is one of Oregon?s best sites for Sooty Grouse. 'Hooting' season begins in mid- to late-March, peaks in April, and continues into June. Early summer may yield sightings of hens with chicks as they feed along roads.

Playing golf at Salem Golf Course becomes a nature walk with all its natural beauty. Trees line the fairways and numerous wildlife (deer, squirrels, geese and ducks with hawks and osprey flying overhead) can be seen. What’s the story behind this desirable place of relaxation? Back in 1925 local businessmen started this venture by donating $250 each to purchase the John Hughes land grant to develop a first class golf course. One man, Ercel Kay, the grandson of the founder of Thomas Kay Woolen Mills of Salem, brought it all together. Two hundred acres were purchased at $160 per acre including the surrounding land to prevent any housing that would obstruct the beauty. The first nine holes were finished in 1927 and the second nine in 1928. On the 6th tee was a Chinese farm. A four-acre apple orchard occupies the center bordering on three fairways. When the golf course first opened to the public, the green fees were 25 cents for the nine holes and 40 cents for the full eighteen holes. In 1965, son of Ercel, and great grandson of the Mission Mill owner, Thomas Kay) bought the course from his father. Over the last 75 years the original buildings have been remodeled and enlarged many times. The club has re-built most of the greens and tees and added extensively to its practice facilities. It remains today, virtually unchanged, a semi-private facility enjoyed by the public as well as its 250 members.<\/p>","post_name":"salem-golf-club","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"44.913","lng":"-123.072","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/golf\/salem-golf-club\/","terms":"a Golf Course or Attraction<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},"138":{"ID":"665180","post_title":"McKenzie River Golf Course","post_content":"","post_name":"mckenzie-river-golf-course","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"44.1332","lng":"-122.641","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/golf\/mckenzie-river-golf-course\/","terms":"a Golf Course or Attraction<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},"139":{"ID":"9015","post_title":"Fish On Charter","post_content":"","post_name":"fish-on-charter","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"44.1582","lng":"-122.623","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/guides-charters-recreation\/fish-on-charter\/","terms":"a Guides & Charter<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},"140":{"ID":"670827","post_title":"Riverswest Flyfishing Service","post_content":"","post_name":"riverswest-flyfishing-service","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"44.9028","lng":"-122.946","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/guides-charters-recreation\/fishing-guides-charters\/riverswest-flyfishing-service\/","terms":"a Guides & Charter<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},"141":{"ID":"109811","post_title":"Clemens County Park","post_content":"

Situated 15 miles east of Eugene in the town of Lowell, Dexter Reservoir is the last impoundment on the Middle Fork of the Willamette before it joins the Coast Fork to create the main stem of the Willamette. Steady water levels make Dexter a reliable choice for first-rate boating throughout the year, and South Valley residents flock here to take advantage of its wooded setting.

At 1,025 acres, Dexter is 3.3 miles long and a mile wide at it widest point; it’s regularly stocked with rainbow trout. Several times each year Dexter Reservoir is host to speed boat races sponsored by The Columbia Drag Boat Association; during some events, Alcohol Hydro craft can reach speeds of up to 230 miles per hour! At the other end of the speed scale, Dexter is also home to the Oregon Association of Rowers. Several access points are available.

Foster offers good angling for stocked rainbow trout, kokanee and bass, and ample space for waterskiers and other on-the-water activities. Three launch points are available on Foster Reservoir. Green Peter Reservoir and Clear Lake, two popular still-water destinations, are just a short drive to the east.

RiverRidge Golf Course is an exquisitely designed 18-hole, par-71 course that blankets 107 gently rolling acres, bordering the Willamette River in north Eugene. It is beautiful, well maintained, and it will keep you honest. The golf course challenges golfers of all skill levels with a unique blend of pars and a combination of open \"hit away\" holes and \"target\" holes where excessive power is a handicap. RiverRidge is landscaped to complement its natural surroundings, not squeezed between residential or commercial properties. It meets the expectations of golfers of all abilities. The design puts an emphasis on short game and course management to score without burdening the high handicapper with unnecessary length and forced carries. An Audubon certified golf course that boasts of over 120 species of trees among the over 1200 planted since its inception. The two courses, SuttonRidge & ShortRidge, afford all levels of experience a fun and enjoyable outing. Executive Course Sutton is the ultimate executive golf course experience. Easily played in under two hours, the challenging target golf layout tests veteran players to score—accuracy is the premium. Newer players have a reasonable expectation of success without the pressure of “the big course”. The par 3 course is a beautiful blend of challenge and playability. The experienced player will learn to score from 110 yards, while the recreational player has fun making par. Every one in the family will enjoy the nine holes together in under one hour as well as the business person that wants to squeeze a round of golf in at lunch time.<\/p>","post_name":"riverridge-golf-complex","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"44.1071","lng":"-123.091","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/golf\/riverridge-golf-complex\/","terms":"a Golf Course or Attraction<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},"246":{"ID":"6438","post_title":"Tidbits Mountain Trail","post_content":"Tidbits Mountain Trail is a moderate 1.4 mile trail at an elevation of 4,260 feet.

Silver Falls offers numerous recreation opportunities including hiking, horseback riding, fishing, picnicking, swimming, biking, viewing scenery, and viewing interpretive sites.<\/p>

The Canyon Trail is a nationally recognized trail system that leads hikers along the banks of the north and south forks of Silver Creek. It takes you to ten majestic water falls, ranging from the grand South Falls (177 feet), to the delicate Drake Falls (27 feet). Four of these falls have an amphitheater-like surrounding where you can walk behind the falls and feel the misty, crisp spray.<\/p>\r\n

The park has over 25 miles of trails for hiking (14 miles of horse trails). Pets are welcome on all but 5 miles. Because the canyon trail is narrow and bordered by sharp drop-offs in spots, bicycles, skate boards, in-line skates and pets are not allowed on the canyon trail. If you have any questions about which trails will accommodate pets, check with park staff.<\/p>\r\n

At Silver Falls, you will find unique group camping areas like the Old and New Ranch buildings, Silver Creek Youth Camp, North Falls trailer and tent areas, RV, cabin and tent camping in the overnight campground. Additional cabin rentals and complete group accommodations can be found at Silver Falls Conference Center.<\/p>\r\n

Guided daytime horse trail rides for people of all abilities are available from Memorial Day to Labor Day for a fee. For more information or to make special arrangements, contact the park.<\/p>\r\n

Vital stats: A small fee or annual pass are required for day-use of the park. The campground offers 54 electrical sites, 51 tent sites (maximum site 60 feet; sites are closed Oct. 31-Apr. 15); group tent areas (3 areas); group RV areas(2 areas); horse campsites (5 sites with corrals; closed Oct. 31-Apr. 15); and 14 cabins.

This wildlife area is on the site of Camp Adair, a US Army training cantonment, which for a few years in the 1940s was effectively Oregon's second-largest city. The area is now a complex of brushland, riparian woods, and restored wetlands. The street grid from Camp Adair still remains, providing more than 20 mi of mostly level paths (many paved) that are ideal for bicycle birding. In winter, Song and Sooty Fox Sparrows are abundant in the brushy hedgerows. Sharp-shinned Hawk, Cooper's Hawk, and Merlin prey on the large sparrow and finch flocks. Wood Duck and Hooded Merganser are especially easy to find here in spring. Solitary Sandpiper shows up regularly in late April and again in early fall; check wooded ponds. This is the Willamette Valley's most important nesting area for Yellow-breasted Chat; they are easy to hear March - June, but good luck spotting one! For a more vigorous hike, the Coffin Butte trail climbs 200 ft into oak woodland with a remnant upland prairie. Look here for nesting Cassin's Vireo, Chipping Sparrow and Lazuli Bunting along with resident Hutton's Vireo. Fallouts of migrant warbler occur in April when oaks and maples are budding.

As you look around the around the forested area surrounding Suttle Lake you will see some trees that are healthy and others that appear to be dying.

This area is part of nearly 150,000 acres on the Deschutes and Willamette National Forests that are being affected by the outbreak. These insects are a natural part of the environment, but have reached epidemic levels due to drought, natural fire exclusion, and selected logging practice.

Trail Description: Hiking trails run both north (downstream) or south along the Metolius from Wizard Falls Fish Hatchery. Any distance from 0 to 10 miles may be hiked by following the same trail out and back. A hike upstream along the west bank leads to the confluence of the Canyon Creek Campground is a spectacular sight.<\/p>\r\n

From the Hatchery a 6.5 mile loop can be accomplished by hiking downstream to Lower Bridge, crossing the river, and returning on the opposite bank. This loop offers a combination of riverside and forest settings. Osprey nests and a beaver dam may be seen along the way.<\/p>\r\n

The first users of forest trails along the river were Indians. It was they who gave the river its name - Metolius. Some say the name means \"white fish\", others say it means \"stinking water\" or \"spawning salmon\". In any case, the name of the river makes reference to its outstanding fishery. Salmon from the Pacific Ocean spawned in the Metolius and its tributaries before dams obstructed their path. The river is now host to rainbow, brook, brown and bull trout; whitefish and kokanee.<\/p>\r\n

Restroom facilities and water are available at Wizard Falls Fish Hatchery. The trail leaves the river near some private property downstream from the fish hatchery.

Nancy' s Loop: The distance around this loop is 1.5 miles. This loop begins about 1\/2 mile beyond Warren's loop and is slightly less difficult. The terrain is flatter, however, the loop is longer. Again there may be some yellow diamonds along the trail, always follow the blue diamonds.

Jeff View Loop: This one mile trail traverses west from Jeff View Shalter then drops down a slope hill through an opening and onto an old logging road that heads back to the east where it intersects with Nancy's Loop.

Snow Creek Trail: This trail is located on portions of the Metolius Windigo and starts 4.7 miles up the Three Creek Lake trail at the junction of forest road 16 and the road leading to the Park Meadow trailhead. It offers more challenge with varied terrain and views of the Three Sisters. The trail parallels part of the Snow Creek ditch then Snow Creek before turning northeast along the Metolius Windigo trail. Near the north end you will tie with Nancy's Loop. The total round trip distance from the snow park up Three Creek Lake trail and down the Snow Creek trail is about 9 miles. Follow the blue diamonds even though you may see yellow diamonds along the horse trail.

Three Creek Lake also offers snowmobiling as a winter recreational activity. Winter is a beautiful time of year in Central Oregon and snowmobiling is a active means of enjoying it. The Three Creek Lake area offers many opportunities for snowmobiling. From the Sno-Park one can proceed north or south on the cross-district snowmobile route; the southern route will eventually lead to Elk Lake, (23.8 miles) while the northern route will lead to the McKenzie Pass (18.9 miles) and eventually to the Santiam Recreation Area (30.7 miles).
Road #16 is not plowed on a scheduled basis, and at times access may be limited to the lower Sno-Park. The snow line is generally about 10 miles south or uphill, from Sisters. Always carry chains when driving on Road #16. All snowmobile routes are marked with orange diamonds; blue diamonds are used to mark ski trails.","post_name":"three-creek-lake-nordic-trails","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"44.1343","lng":"-121.623","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/snow-sports\/hiking\/three-creek-lake-nordic-trails\/","terms":"a

This is the signature trail ride in Oregon, rated the #1 trail in the nation by a national cycling magazine. It’s 26 miles of beauty and challenge, offering sections that are appropriate and challenging for everyone from the weekend cruiser to the thrill junkie.<\/p>\r\n

The top-end trailhead starts just off Highway 126 about a mile above Clear Lake; there’s an off-road parking lot. Most people ride this one-way (usually downhill from the top) in groups, using shuttle vehicles; soloists can try a hitchhiking solution, ride it all the way down and back (a long day) or pick a shorter segment to ride out-and-back.<\/p>\r\n

The trail starts in deep forest and soon presents a choice of routes around Clear Lake. Go east (left) to take the challenging route through loose lava rock, some paved trail (but not easy, actually) and along the rugged edge of the lake. You’ll go right by the spring pool that feeds the lake and the McKenzie River. The west fork is much gentler.<\/p>\r\n

After Clear Lake you’ll cross the highway and start a section of technical trail through the forest – roots, rocks, small ledges and lava rocks make this a good challenge. Don’t be too foolish to get off the bike for a couple stretches. You’ll pass Sahalie and Koosah Falls, and eventually lose the river as it submerges below ground. After a bit, you’ll see Tamolitch Pool, a serene bloe pool where the river re-emerges. There are rocks above the pool perfect for stopping for a food break.<\/p>\r\n

As you continue on, there are some more technical stretches, but eventually the trail becomes more intermediate. There are some awesome segments where you can glide through the trees, slaloming like a ski run without touching the brakes for hundreds of yards at a time. There are multiple stream crossings, all with bridges; many of them are made of huge logs and present a serious can-you-ride-this challenge for the adrenaline lovers.<\/p>\r\n

The bottom section is much less technical than the top, but still presents some climbs and plenty of surreal scenery.<\/p>\r\n

The trail crosses roads and jogs around a bit, but it’s signed well enough to keep you on track. There are multiple entry points from Highway 126; check with the ranger station in McKenzie Bridge for advice if you want a partial ride.<\/p>\r\n

This is (overall) downhill, but it’s not necessarily a trail where you’ll make fast time. Allow four to five hours top to bottom unless you’re in a hurry. And on this trail, you shouldn’t be.<\/p>\r\n

Cougar Dam, on the south fork of the scenic McKenzie River, is just off the McKenzie\/Santiam Pass Scenic Byway. The dam demonstrates some cutting-edge efforts in support of the Willamette Hatcheries Biological Opinion Project and migrating salmon. A temperature control tower takes water of various temperatures from the reservoir and spills it into the river, keeping water cool in the summer for salmon. A trap-and-haul fish facility uses a fishway leading from the base of Cougar Dam to a holding pool where fish can be sorted and returned to the river or transported for release to sites above the dam. People may view and learn about these facilities and hike in the national forest or visit the hot springs nearby.<\/p>\r\n

The local culture is enhanced in many ways by this dam. Cougar Dam is one of 13 that protect the Willamette Valley during flood events. It is set in the beautiful Willamette National Forest and is right near the Cougar Hot Springs. Learning more about how federal, state and other agencies are partnering to make things happen for the salmon speaks volumes about the culture of the people in this region.<\/p>","post_name":"cougar-dam","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"44.1233","lng":"-122.242","permalink":"\/see-do\/oregon-heritage\/history-heritage\/cougar-dam\/","terms":"a Sustainable Travel<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},"533":{"ID":"6278","post_title":"Yukwah Campground","post_content":"Yukwah Campground is located approximately 19 miles east of Sweet Home at an elevation of 1,300 feet.

Situated at the western edge of the Cascades 50 miles east of Salem, 3,500-acre Detroit Reservoir is one of Oregon’s largest and most popular summer boating retreats. The reservoir was created in 1953 with the damming of the North Santiam River. It's over nine miles long with more than 32 miles of shoreline, and reaches depths of 400 feet.

Detroit Reservoir has countless little coves to tuck into, making it a great spot for cruisers seeking seclusion. Rainbow trout and kokanee are the primary angler's quarry here; spots where creeks enter the lake are most productive. If you look up from your line from time to time, you’re likely to spot ospreys or bald eagles, both of which call the lake home. Well-established as a recreational hub, the town of Detroit at the impoundment's eastern edge offers overnight visitors extensive services, including campgrounds, stores and restaurants. For boaters seeking a little extra adventure, there’s a small boat-in campground on Piety Island.

Clear Lake, the source of the famous McKenzie River, was formed more than 3,000 years ago when volcanic lava flow blocked a stream bed. The spring-fed lake is exceptionally clear, with visibility to the bottom more than 100 feet down in some spots – with the ghostly trunks of cold-preserved trees rising from the bottom. The lake is kept in pristine condition by limiting boat traffic to muscle power only. There are very few contaminants introduced into the lake, keeping it clear and ecologically sound.<\/p>\r\n

The SCUBA diving in Clear Lake is amazing. Clear Lake is known to be one of the most exceptional freshwater diving spots in the United States. There is so much natural beauty to experience, with breathtaking visibility. Although it is considered a high-altitude dive (elev 3,012 feet), the average dive depth is 40 feet, offering easy access to most divers. This is a must dive for anyone wanting to experience Caribbean-clear diving without having to travel outside the country. <\/p>","post_name":"clear-lake","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"44.291","lng":"-121.549","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/geotourism-sustainable-travel\/clear-lake\/","terms":"a Sustainable Travel<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},"635":{"ID":"1382936","post_title":"Night Skiing at Hoodoo Mountain Resort","post_content":"

Low snow years can allow year-round use for most of this trail. Due to heavy use and repeated conflicts, dogs must be on a leash on these trails.

Mountain Bike Description: Ride back on FS 700 and turn left onto FS 4120, riding towards the river. Continue down FS 4120 for a short time until you reach the overflow parking lot and gated road. Pass through the gate and ride along this road for 0.75 mile. Just before you reach a second gate turn left onto a single track. Cross the road at the Big Eddy Rapids parking lot and continue along this trail for 0.75 mile as you cross several abandoned roads and alternate between single track and double track. When you rejoin FS 4120, at a third gate, follow this for 1 mile as it overlooks the river. Just past the forth gate turn left toward Dillon Falls. At the end of the Dillon Falls parking lot follow the single track back to FS 4120 to retrace your route back to Lava Island Falls and the trailhead.

This route follows Forest service's recommended mountain bike route along the Deschutes River between Lava Island Falls and Dillon Falls. Mountain bikers are urged to use this route along this congested corridor to reduce user conflicts between mountain bikers, hikers and horse travelers.","post_name":"deschutes-river-trail","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"43.9997","lng":"-121.381","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/cycling\/hiking\/deschutes-river-trail\/","terms":"a Hiking<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},"746":{"ID":"6550","post_title":"Southshore Campground","post_content":"Southshore Campground is located approximately 6.5 miles south of Detroit at an elevation of 1,600 feet.
