Hike Rating: Moderate


This hike starts at the end of Riffle Road at Crooked River Ranch. At Crooked River Ranch, turn west onto Badger Road from Chinook Drive. At the bottom of the hill, turn left on Rainbow Road. Follow it until you come to Quail
Road. Turn left on Quail Road. At the “Y” stay right on Ice Ave/Steelhead Falls Road. Turn left
onto Riffle Road and park at the end.a

Group will take a short side trip for a vista of the Deschutes River Canyon from the rim. Then we will follow
the established trail down to the river, stopping to observe Native American rock art along the way. This is
not a long hike; however, the trail down to the river is steep and a bit rocky. You will want to spend
some time with your camera catching the autumn colors and shadows on the canyon walls.
Please wear good, closed-toe hiking shoes. Bring plenty of water and your hiking poles if you use them.
Hike Leaders are Tom Iraci and Marilynne Keyser (541-923- 0558, mtkeyser@gmail.com).

Group size is limited to 8 people. 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.
