: Painted Hills, Oregon

Eastern Oregon

Welcome to Oregon’s corner of the Wild West.

Sagebrush plains, rimrock vistas, craggy mountains and unspoiled rivers define this landscape, which calls out for backcountry exploring. Find a section of the Oregon Trail, fish for trout in a Wild and Scenic River, kick up your heels at a rodeo or stay the night on a working cattle ranch.

Take in the open skies and breathe the fresh air while encountering some of the kindest folks on the planet. It’s all here in Oregon’s biggest, wide-open region.
