Title states it all. The views of the Mounts long with the lakes, streams, and rivers in the high desert cannot be beat.

Any forest is appealing to me, and this one has beautiful Tumala Falls. It's a short walk to the falls from the parking area, and has all the quiet beauty of a river, and good smells of nature!

This area is great for those who love the outdoors. It has many trails throughout the area which are used by hikers and mountain bikers. Many of the trails go along the beautiful Deschutes River.

We rode through the Deschutes National Forest with some friends on our motorcycles and found the scenery to be wonderful. We stopped and looked at a few water falls and looked out over the lava flows. Simply a nice ride with plenty to see.

Any trip to Central Oregon needs to include an excursion into the Deschutes Nat'l Forest. Whatever the time of year there is always something to explore including hiking, biking, snowshoeing, skiing, backbacking, white water rafting, caving, hunting, fishing, and problem endless more ways to enjoy this area.
