: Echo West Vineyard Sno Road MTB Trail System by Adam Schwartz

Echo

The historic town of Echo is located in northeastern Oregon, eight miles south of Hermiston and 20 miles west of Pendleton.

Situated along the Umatilla River within a tree-lined valley known as Echo Meadows, Echo is the perfect spot for fishing, hiking, mountain biking, golf, boating and bird-watching. Echo is a popular stop for Oregon Trail enthusiasts and history buffs who come to see where emigrants crossed the Umatilla River and camped at a site known as the Lower Crossing. Today, their former campsite is the site of the Fort Henrietta Park, an Oregon National Historic Trail site.
