Activities at Fort Rock include viewing the rock, hiking, picnicking, viewing interpretive displays and viewing wildlife.
Hike around and you’ll soon realize it’s even bigger than it looks! It’s an old shield volcano set in what was a shallow sea in prehistoric times. A half mile hiking trail is found inside the crater. As you walk around inside, imagine the early American Indians who canoed to and from what was then an island. Human-made artifacts found nearby are the oldest ever discovered in Oregon.
