Separate trails were built for hikers, horses, and bicycles. Cyclists also share the hiking trail nearest the river, as long as conflicts are minimized. 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>)"},"37":{"ID":"9556","post_title":"Second Nature Cascades Inc","post_content":"","post_name":"second-nature-cascades-inc","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"44.0275","lng":"-121.283","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/guides-charters-recreation\/outdoor\/second-nature-cascades-inc\/","terms":"an Outdoor Guide<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},"38":{"ID":"9064","post_title":"Geraths Taylor L","post_content":"","post_name":"geraths-taylor-l","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"44.0301","lng":"-121.281","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/guides-charters-recreation\/fishing-guides-charters\/geraths-taylor-l\/","terms":"a Guides & Charter<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},"39":{"ID":"6765","post_title":"Phil's Trail Loop","post_content":"

Phil’s Trail is both the name of a very popular mountain bike trail near Bend, but also the general name the locals have given for the huge complex of singletrack trails in the area.<\/p>\r\n

Located just a couple miles from the center of town, the singletrack starts before you even reach the parking area with a ribbon of dirt paralleling Skyliners Road beginning at the Mt. Washington Road roundabout.  There’s a couple of places to park along Skyliners where you maximize your dirt experience.<\/p>\r\n

Once at the parking area, just a half mile down the paved Forest Road 4606, you’ll find trailheads for Ben’s, Kent’s, Phil’s and Marvin’s Garden. (There’s a vault toilet there as well.)<\/p>\r\n

The yurts are domed tents with structural support, a plywood floor, lockable wooden door, lights, heating, and beds with mattresses. In addition, the park offers riverside hiking trails, and a group picnic area.

Tumalo State Park offers winter recreation that is just up the road at Mt. Bachelor where skiers and snowboarders can experience some of the best powder in the state. If you are not fond of the lifts, there are miles of groomed Nordic trails and tons of snowy backcountry areas to explore.

At dawn or dusk try casting for rainbow trout as they sip at mayflies and caddis flies. Grab your raft and float with your feet dangling into the cool water during the heat of the summer. Take a hike and explore one of the river trails as they gently wind through canyons created by the untamed river. Watch deer forage for food just as the sun creeps below the rim of the canyon.

Centrally located just 16 miles east of Bend and Redmond, Oregon is the new Brasada Canyons 18-hole championship golf course. The private golf course has a 7,300-yard layout, is a par 72 and was designed by PGA touring professionals Peter Jacobsen and Jim Hardy. The course architects studied the land and capitalized on the topography and natural amenities by utilizing native vegetation, canyons, ridges and plateaus of the high desert location in their design for a challenging venue, with opportunities for rewards. Each hole has five teeing areas, and numerous white silica sand bunkers, providing the low and high handicappers a variety of playing options. Situated at about 3,500 feet, with elevation drops of 225 feet on each side, the views across the valley floor to the mountains of the Cascade Range to the west are spectacular. The course partially opened in 2006 and will be fully playable in the summer of 2007, along with a private member clubhouse, pro shop and practice facilities.<\/p>\r\n

The course, weather permitting, is open year-round. The Brasada Club is a premier, non-equity, private club whose members are owners at Brasada Ranch, a Jeld-Wen Community. The 1,800-acre resort, 900-home destination community is being developed on the slopes of the Powell Buttes east of Bend and Redmond, Oregon. Brasada Canyons is a private, member and guest only golf course.

It traverses a mixed pine forest and offers excellent opportunities to see the many different types of wildlife and vegetation in the area. The maintained trail parallels the east side of Squaw Creek and ends at an overlook above the falls. The Cascades, another falls site, can be reached by continuing for another 1\/2 mile beyond the overlook. No trail exists between the Falls and the Cascades, but it is relatively easy to navigate the cross-country portion if you keep the creek in your sight.

The cycle of rain and snow makes Squaw Creek Falls an ever changing attraction. The water flowing over the falls comes from melting snow and glaciers on Broken Top and South Sister; causing the size of the falls to vary greatly with the time of year and even the time on day. From March to June alone the flow can increase by more than six times.

The melting snow carries sediment into the creek. At times, the creek can appear red or gray due to various types of sedimentation. Red cinders eroded off of volcanic rock may be present at times when the water flows fairly high. Late in the summer, a milky gray coloration can be caused by \"glaciers and carried in the stream.

Wilderness permits are required on this trail. Day-use permits are available at the trailhead, overnight permits must be obtained from a Forest Service office or commercial outlet. No potable water or restroom facilities are available on the trail.","post_name":"squaw-creek-falls-trail","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"44.1593","lng":"-121.675","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/hiking\/squaw-creek-falls-trail\/","terms":"a Hiking<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},"92":{"ID":"1052","post_title":"Newberry National Volcanic Monument","post_content":"

On the northeastern edge of the reservoir, you’ll find the Prineville Wildlife area, which affords excellent bird watching in the summer months (including golden eagles, prairie falcons and Brewers blackbirds) and a chance to observe mule deer in the winter. Some boaters will make their way to Prineville Reservoir along Route 27, a beautiful road that hugs the lower Crooked River—a favorite trout stream for fly fishers. Fully equipped campsites are available on the lake; rustic sites along the Crooked River.

It is still used occasionally if severely dry weather or large lightning storms require additional eyes on the forest. It is designed to house only one or two people during the summer months. The lookout cabin contains a propane stove, table, chairs and a single bed. Below the cabin is an open deck with picnic table, with a short set of steps providing access to the cabin through a trap door; the steps are narrow and care should be taken when transporting gear. An outhouse is located at the north end of the parking area. Drinking water is Not provided, so take enough water for drinking and cooking for the length on your stay.

The lookout is located approximately 23 miles north of Sisters, Oregon on the edge of a 16-mile long fault block ridge about 500 feet above the Metolius River Valley, at 4800 feet elevation. The view to the west encompasses the Cascades from Mt. Jefferson south to Three Finger Jack and Black Butte. The Lookout is maintained by the Sisters Ranger District as a semi-active fire lookout.

Summer and autumn access to this lookout is possible with any reasonable family vehicle; just be cautious of dusty roads and blind corners. Winter and early spring access may require high clearance four-wheel drive vehicles, snowmobiles, or cross country skis, during a winter of average snowfall winter, it may only be possible to access the lookout with snowmobiles.","post_name":"green-ridge-lookout","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"44.5428","lng":"-121.594","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/hiking\/green-ridge-lookout\/","terms":"a Hiking<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},"150":{"ID":"665975","post_title":"Metolius River Trail","post_content":"

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. Please respect the property owner's privacy and stay outside fence lines.<\/p>","post_name":"metolius-river-trail","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"44.5223","lng":"-121.632","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/hiking\/metolius-river-trail\/","terms":"a Hiking<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},"151":{"ID":"6489","post_title":"Suttle Lake Shore Trail","post_content":"The minimal elevation change on this trail makes it an ideal hike for people of all ages and fitness levels. The trail follows the wooded shoreline of the lake and provides many opportunities for fishing or picnicking along the way. On Summer days it is possible to watch a variety of water sports including water-skiing and windsurfing from the shore. The trail passes through all of the developed recreation areas on the lake, making it easily accessible from any point.

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. The healthy trees with long green needles are pines. The affected trees are comprised of true firs and Douglas firs that are being defoliated by an infestation of Western Spruce Budworm. 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. Forest Service scientists have been closely monitoring this epidemic. In the spring of 1993, the budworm population dropped drastically.

If you plan on fishing in the lake make sure to have an Oregon fishing license. These may be purchased at local sporting goods stores or at Suttle Lake Resort.","post_name":"suttle-lake-shore-trail","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"44.417","lng":"-121.763","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/fishing\/cycling\/hiking\/suttle-lake-shore-trail\/","terms":"a Hiking<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},"152":{"ID":"6720","post_title":"Reservoir Campground","post_content":"Located on the Wickiup Reservoir the Reservoir Campground offers 28 campsites with vault toilets, and a boat launch.

It provides 318 miles of trail for casual and competitive use covering about 110,000 acres and ranging in elevation from 4400 to 6400 feet.

The trail system is designed for Class I and Class III ATVs which are ATVs (quads or three-wheelers) and motorcycles less than 50\" in width. East Fort Rock is not an OHV park. Off-highway vehicles are allowed on designated routes and areas only. The trails are open to horses, mountain bikes, and other recreationists, so please watch for others and ride carefully.

The trail system is open all year, however hot, dusty conditions normally inhibit riding from mid-July through September and cold, snowy conditions inhibit riding from mid-December through March. About half of the project area is within the Fox Butte Green Dot Area which restricts access to designated roads during the general deer hunting season. This is roughly a two-week period form late September to mid-October, and any roads or trails within the Green Dot Area will be subject to Green Dot restrictions. Individual trails may be temporarily closed for maintenance or reconstruction or to provide resource protection.

These trails and facilities are being developed and maintained for your enjoyment through a cooperative effort by the Forest Service, Oregon ATV Fund, Central Oregon Motorcycle and ATV Club, and many other volunteers.

The lake has populations of rainbow and whitefish. Fishing is restricted to fly fishing only with artificial flies. Boat speed restricted to 10 mph to get out onto the lake and back. Trolling with a motor is illegal.

The lake's unique character is a result of a large lava flow which blocked the flow of Odell Creek. The result is a lake which occasionally covers 3,000 acres. There is no apparent outlet for the lake but the lava block dam permits water to escape to a yet unknown destination. Odell and Ranger creeks feed Davis Lake. However, the flow of these streams does not equal the water lost through the lava. Consequently, the water area of the lake declines steadily throughout the summer season.

Davis Lake has three campgrounds and one boat ramp. East Davis Campground has 33 units, West Davis has 25 units. Both have fireplaces, tables, water with hand pump, and toilet facilities. Lava Flow has 12 units, no drinking water, tables, a boat ramp and toilet facilities.

Don not forget your fishing gear since the Davis Lake offers excellent fishing. Only fly fishing is permitted on the lake itself, but various baits and lures can be used in Odell Creek. Look for the Game Department's sign which delineate the fly fishing only area.

In order to preserve the meadow habitat and to insure against pollution of the lake, you are asked not to camp on the meadow.

Eagle Crest offers three unique golfing challenges in one incredible location. Their two 18-hole championship courses are complemented by a par-63 Challenge Course. Eagle Crest is located in the heart of Central Oregon, just five miles west of Redmond. Nestled between the majestic Cascades to the west and beautiful Smith Rock to the east, Eagle Crest is a full-service destination resort. Eagle Crest has three state-of-the-art fitness centers, a full-service spa, 15 miles of hiking and biking trails, an 18-hole live turf putting course, vacation homes and the 100-room Inn at Eagle Crest. This is the perfect place for a golfing getaway.

Designed by in-house architect John Thronson, the 18-hole championship Ridge Course is carved out of an ancient juniper forest and offers gorgeous views of the majestic Cascade Mountains. This course has been a repeat host to the Oregon Open.

The original course, the par-72 Resort Course, was designed by Gene \"Bunny\" Mason. The Resort Course sits along the rim of the Deschutes River canyon. In fact, the course's signature hole, the second hole, sits over 80 feet above the canyon floor.

The Challenge Course is Central Oregon's golf secret. With nine par 3's and nine par 4's, this course is a favorite among golfers because it is both fun and challenging. The course is strategically sculpted and offers four different tee boxes, making it a great course for avid golfers and beginners alike. The Challenge only takes about three hours, leaving you plenty of time to explore Eagle Crest and Central Oregon.

It is approximately 6 miles long and 1 1\/2 miles wide. Odell Lake is one of the largest lakes in one of the largest lakes in Oregon and has populations of bull trout (dolly Varden), lake trout (mackinaw), rainbow trout, whitefish, and kokanee. All bull trout must be released.

One of the outstanding attractions of the 287-foot-deep lake is fishing. The Oregon State Wildlife Commission stocked this lake annually until 1986. Since then the populations have come from natural spawning. Approximately 75 percent of the catch occurs each year from mid-May to mid-July. The short harvest period is due to a change in kokanee feeding habits after mid-July.

Lake (mackinaw) trout were introduced prior to 1917. They are now maintaining themselves in satisfactory numbers. There is a small, but determined effort for these trophy fish which weigh up to forty pounds. Although rainbow trout are also in the lake, they are considered insignificant to the kokanee and lake trout.

Because of its geological position, Odell Lake is subject to wind forces from 24-30 mph. These strong breezes create whitecaps which occur almost every afternoon. Boaters should be aware of this and take precautions against being caught on the lake unless their crafts are large enough not to be endangered by the waves. This lake is gaining in popularity for wind surfing since there is nearly always an afternoon wind.

Odell Lake has several true firs growing around its shores, including Pacific silver fir, Shasta red fir, subalpine fir and white fir. Engelmann spruce, western and mountain hemlock, Douglas fir, ponderosa, lodgepole and white pine also thrive in a climate that has an annual precipitation of 38 inches. The luxuriant growth of various plants helps to create a favorite retreat for many forest visitors.

Activities are boating, fishing, swimming, windsurfing and trails. Several developed campgrounds provide sites to campers. Princess Creek has 46 camping sites, boat launching ramp, and piped water. Odell Creek has 19 campsites and piped water. Trapper Creek has 32 campsites, piped water and a boat launching ramp. All these areas have paved roads, fireplaces, and toilet facilities. Princess Creek has a picnic area available.

Odell Lake Lodge and Shelter Cove Marina provide the forest visitor with comfortable cabins, the opportunity to purchase the food items which were forgotten at home, fishing tackle, boat\/ motor rental and guide services.","post_name":"odell-lake","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"43.5655","lng":"-121.985","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/camping-recreation\/fishing\/hiking\/odell-lake\/","terms":"a Hiking<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},"912":{"ID":"7519","post_title":"Clear Lake Day Use Area","post_content":"Clear Lake Day Use Area is located approximately 3 mile south of Hwy. #20\/126 junction at an elevation of 3,100 feet.

Once you reach the top of the grade the remainder of the trail is easier. The scenery and views are beautiful and the return trip is mostly downhill. A ski shelter is tucked in the trees north of the trail 2 1\/2 miles from the Sno-Park. On a clear day one can enjoy views of Black Butte and Mount Jefferson. Upper portion of the trail on road 16 area a \"shared corridor with snowmobiles and cross country skiers.

Warren's Loop: Distance around the loop is 1.7 miles. This loop is moderately difficult with alternating short steep pitches and flat sections. After leaving the Sno-Park ski up forest road 700 for about three quarters of a mile. At the top of the hill 100 yards past the sharp right turn is a junction and the start of the loop. The loop is located on parts of the Metolius Windigo trail, Roads 710 and 740. This is the shortest loop in the Three Creek Lake Nordic system. Always follow the blue diamonds even though yellow diamonds may be present along the trail.

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 a fairly undeveloped horse camp. There are no corrals, hitching rails and water is not available at the camp. Drinking water can be obtained at North Waldo Campground and horses can be watered near North Waldo off the Waldo Lake Trail (#3590).

The trail around Waldo Lake is another nice ride, but be aware that stock is not allowed in the other Waldo Lake Campgrounds. Help us protect the trees at Harralson by using a high line picket, hobbles or picket stake. Avoid tying your horse to trees. If a nervous horse paws while tied, hobble it to protect vegetation, trees and roots. The mosquito population is high from June to mid-August and can be quite bothersome, so be prepared.

The summit, 7251 feet, is a rocky outcrop which used to house a fire lookout and offers hikers outstanding views of the North Sister, Mount Washington, and the McKenzie Pass lava flows. The panorama extends west over Central Oregon to Prineville, and as far north as Mount Adams.

Black Crater is nearly in the center of the High Cascades volcanic chain, which extends from Lassen Peak on the south to Mt. Baker in the north. Volcanic activity in this chain started nearly 3 million years ago. Most of the highest peaks visible from Black Crater are less than 70,000 years old, but eruptions have continued into modern times: there have been at least 30 in the last 150 years.

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 Willamette National Forest started charging fees for some activities at the Cougar Recreation Area in June, 1998. The fee comes as a result of many years of listening to visitors and community members. By charging a

It offers excellent views of Mount Scott and the Klamath Marsh. The trail travels through a wide variety of elevations and snow depths. At times, the trail may be rerouted because of difficulty grooming portions due to impassable snow drifts. Maje sure you have plenty of gasoline with you on this trip as it is a long walk to civilization!

Miller Lake Trail #3760 : This trail is 12 miles long (one-way) rising from 4,800 feet to an elevation of 5,750 feet before dropping 100 feet in elevation at the Digit Point Campground on Miller Lake. The first six miles of the trail are wide and easy. For the next six miles, the trail narrows with some winding areas and possible deep snow drifts. On the way to Miller Lake, there are excellent views of many of the peaks on the cascade crest. The lake ice is seldom safe for traveling and motorized use is not allowed around the perimeter of the lake.

Deer Creek Loop Trail # 3766 : This is a 15 mile loop which extends into the high country with excellent views into the Little Deschutes River drainage and offers good examples of high elevation forest. Along the trail near Adell Butte, open meadows useable as play areas may be found. Portions of the trail come close to the Mount Thielsen Wilderness boundary.

Reopened in 1910 by the Forest Service, this wagon road became known as the Diamond Lake Road.

The trail begins on an old road for the first half mile, then gradually narrows as it enters the Minnehaha drainage. The trail passes several beautiful meadows before climbing briefly over pumice bluffs overlooking Minnehaha Creek, offering great views of small waterfalls below. Eroded pumice bluffs and exposed lava rock are evidence of the glowing avalanches of Mt. Mazama ash that covered this area over 6,800 years ago.

The trail continues through a forest of old-growth Douglas-fir, lodgepole pine, and western white pine.

From high atop the rim of Crater Lake, you can see what a wonder the world really is. A hike down to the water reveals new wonders. The water is so blue, so deep, it’s no surprise it’s the deepest lake in America, and one of the deepest on earth. That’s why it’s one of the 7 Wonders of Oregon.<\/p>\r\n

Surrounded by cliffs almost 2,000 feet high and boasting a picturesque island a violent volcanic past, Crater Lake is also home to hikes in old-growth forest and cross-country ski trips in the winter months. Many of the roads and facilities close during the winter, but the park is open and accessible all year long.
Crater Lake is located in 
Southern Oregon<\/a>, which is also home to the world-renowed Oregon Shakespeare Festival, the stunning Rogue River, the Oregon Caves and vineyards, chocolatiers and cheesemakers galore. <\/p>\r\n

CLIMATE:<\/strong> Most visitors come to Crater Lake National Park during the months of July through mid-September, when the weather is generally mild with little precipitation. Due to the elevation of the park (6,500 ft. at Park Headquarters and 7,100 ft. at Rim Village), weather conditions may change quickly and a warm jacket and wool sweater are always recommended items to carry. During the winter months, from October through June, weather conditions make preparing for extreme winter conditions necessary. Blizzards, high winds, extreme cold and low visibility dominate the weather patterns. Visitors should come with cold weather gear.

RECREATION:<\/strong> A good place to begin your visit to Crater Lake is at one of the two visitor centers. The Steel Information Center lies south of Rim Drive next to park headquarters and is open year-round. In summer the Rim Village Visitor Center is open along Rim Drive on the southern side of the caldera. After gathering information on the park and its facilities visitors can make educated decisions about what recreation opportunities to pursue. Hiking, backpacking, camping, picnicking and sight seeing are popular pursuits within the park. Boating and scenic driving around Rim Drive can be enjoyed by visitors during the summer months. In winter snowshoeing and cross-country skiing provide solitude and a little-known view of the park. <\/p>","post_name":"crater-lake","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"42.9415","lng":"-122.151","permalink":"\/see-do\/oregon-heritage\/history-heritage\/native-american-heritage\/crater-lake\/","terms":"a
