Event description

Description

RATING: Easy; 1.5 miles

GUIDE: Marilynne Keyser (mtkeyser@gmail.com; 541-923-0558)

Coyote Canyon is a section of BLM land within the boundaries of Crooked River Ranch that has multiple lava upthrusts (similar to collapsed lava tubes) that are easily accessible from the corner of Quail Rd and Rainbow Dr. This is a loop hike of only 1.5 miles along dirt roads joined by a few short rocky trails. There is no elevation gain so the hike should be accessible to most walkers.

Bring a walking stick or trekking pole if you have balance issues. The hike will focus on examining several large collapsed tubes. We will walk through them! This is an area where offensive graffiti was found last summer. During our walk you will see the amazingly successful restoration project completed by Friends and Neighbors of the Deschutes Canyon Area volunteers. There will be native plants and some blooming wildflowers along the way.

Bring your Guide to the Native Plants of the Deschutes Canyon Area. Guide books will be available for purchase before the hike ($10/FANs members; or S12/non-members, payable with cash or check).

Meet at 9:00 a.m. at the dirt area near the intersection of Quail Road and Rainbow Drive at CRR. There is plenty of parking space available.

Group size is limited to 8 people, and dogs are not allowed on this hike. If you sign up and later need to cancel, please do so as soon as possible so that people on the wait list can be invited to join this hike. Thank you!
