Deschutes River First Day Hike - Jan. 1, 2023

Take a ranger-led hike on the historic Deschutes River Trail through the Deschutes River Canyon. The hike will loop from the Deschutes River Trail onto the Ferry Springs Trail to climb along an old wagon road to the highest point in the park with magnificent views of the Deschutes River Scenic Waterway. We will then dive back down into the canyon and onto the Blackberry Trail for the final leg along the rivers edge back to the campground.
