Event description


Long before breweries and boarding, what brought people to the unique landscapes of Central Oregon? Join the Deschutes Land Trust, Leslie Olson, and Derek Loeb to explore the history of Central Oregon in Skyline Forest. Mill about near the site of a 1916 lumber mill and explore Bend's early logging history. Then, hike along the Columbia Southern Canal and a surprising canyon that gives a window into Bend's explosive geologic past, and learn how water and irrigation impacted early settlement. Finally, learn about the impact of wildfire on this important forest and how the Land Trust is working to preserve its future. Registration is required and opens 1 month prior to the event.

Hike Rating: This is a moderate, ~3 mile hike on dirt roads and trails and off trail.

What to Bring: Snacks/Lunch, water, sturdy hiking shoes. Dress for the weather.
