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.

Here you will see a multitude of differing landscapes where you can hike, ride and run...we did the former! Again check the remarkable information offered by the... More

The Deschutes National Forest is an interesting mix of huge pine trees, super low humidity, and desert climate. We had a heat wave, up in the lower 100's, road biking this hot was doable because of the low humidity. People are so aware of cyclists... Not once have we been honked at or told to get off the roads (happens... More
