About this Event

Hike Rating: Moderate; 2.5 mile loop with 100 feet elevation change

Guide:  Eric Hanson

This hike offers something a little different! We will follow lesser known paths and a bit of cross country travel. Our adventure will include spring "greenies and growies," a touch of local history (Who the heck is Foley Waters?), a fraudulent gold mine, Deschutes River access, some local geology and a really pleasant hike. Standard hiking equipment includes sturdy boots, lunch or trail snacks, water, extra clothing layer and trekking poles. Bring a face mask - standard Covid precautions will be in effect.

This is a free hike, limited to 8 participants and registration is required. If the hike is full, add your name to the wait list. 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. No pets permitted on this hike.

DIRECTIONS: We will meet at the Steelhead Falls Trailhead. From Hwy 97 turn onto Lower Bridge Way at the Crooked River Ranch highway sign. Drive 2 miles, turn right onto 43rd Street and drive about 1.7miles then turn left onto Chinook Drive and after 1.0 mile turn left onto Badger Road and travel 1.7 miles to the end - at the “T” intersection, turn right onto Quail Road. Travel about 1.1 miles and turn left onto River Road. Drive to the end of River Road and arrive at the Steelhead Falls parking area.
