The entire area contains several mountain passes; many, many lakes and streams; lots... More

Volcanoes, kayaking, cross-county skiing, downhill skiing, mountain biking, road biking, stand-up paddle boarding, picnicking, camping, fishing, waterfalls? I mean really, that's only part of the list. Scenery is beautiful. Adjacent to Bend, Oregon - dinner and local beer after a day of outrages activities.

It is worth spending time here for a short or long hike...the "falls" which is a series of long cascading rapids are an impressive sight. Mosquitoes can be pretty intense on the trail to the falls, bug spray strongly advised to make your hike or bike more enjoyable.

Big Forest. Was really hot when we went in July. Couldnt enjoy it like we wanted to because of the heat. Last year same thing, but the problem was rain and lightning. Guess it want meant to be.

Entire family went fishing here and the family dog had a great time too. Rest facilities were clean, water was clear (but still cold in July), and wildlife was plentiful. Saw bald eagles, pelicans, squirrels, chipmunk, deer, and many others.

We were on our way to the falls and the road was closed. We had few options but stopped to take a hike through the forest which we found enjoyable. It was well suited for mountain bikers and we passed many on our return.
