Event description

Description

Hike Rating: Easy; 3.5 miles

Guide: John Magee

Meet at the Deschutes River side of the dog park (across the street from the Hampton Inn) in the Old Mill District in Bend. This hike will follow the banks of the rapids-filled, ponderosa-lined Deschutes River. We will begin by walking upstream, crossing the foot bridge to view the awesome metal horse sculpture in Farewell Bend Park and to take the short spur trail along the boardwalk adjacent to the river. We will then head 1.5 miles upstream, cross over to the opposite side, and return 1.5 miles downstream back to the dog park.

Group size is limited to 10 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!

Driving directions:

From Highway 97 Parkway in Bend, take Reed Market Rd exit heading west. At the roundabout, take a right onto Bond St. Take the second left onto Columbia St. Proceed over the bridge, then take the first left which is the entrance to the parking lot for the adjacent dog park. The Hampton Inn will be directly across from the dog park parking lot. Meet at the far end of the parking lot closest to the river.
