OUTDOOR ADVENTURES

Whether on foot, in a boat, or on horseback, Central Oregon will help you reconnect with the explorer inside you.

Life in the High Desert is all about taking in the outdoors and experiencing life to its fullest.  Let the magic of the Cascade Mountains lift your spirits, transcend your cares and soothe your soul. Take in the sights, sounds and smells of the High Desert, witness a river bobble up from a spring, listen to a cry of an osprey gliding overhead and breathe in the fresh scent of pine and Juniper. You will have a greater appreciation for life, as you discover the peace and serenity of the High Desert first hand.

The popularity of mountain biking has helped put Central Oregon on the map. Bike trails offered here are like no other rides in the country. Cyclists of all levels will find their share of challenges at the Northeast Redmond Trail Complex (The Radlands), the Maston Trails near Cline Butte, at Smith Rock, or even toward the summit of Grey Butte.

If you enjoy a slightly easier pace, you'll find it along the seemingly endless miles of hiking trails.  Trails come in all forms, from short and easy, to long and difficult.  Stroll along a scenic river, summit a butte or rocky cliff, discover a hidden viewpoint, or explore a cave.  Simply, find a path that matches the explorer inside you.

Central Oregon’s rivers, lakes and reservoirs offer the ideal destinations for floaters, boaters, canoers, kayakers and paddleboarders. For more extreme water tours, contact a local river or whitewater rafting tour company and have the thrill of your life.
