The scenic byway was enjoyable. We had pick nick lunch at Lava Lake. It was not crowed and was quite. A number of the lakes were very busy.

This National Forest is one of my favorites. Pine trees and the Deschutes River make for a great vacation.

To many hiking trails to count and a river that is home to all kinds of recreational activities. Hiking, biking, rafter, tubing, swimming and sight seeing. This river is so clear you can in some places see the rocks on the bottom.

A visit to this area of Oregon must include the Deschutes National Forest.

Very pretty, very quiet, excellent road. It is a beautiful part of the country with many little lakes, each seem to have their own resort or campground.

Beautiful and FULL of both hiking and mountain biking trails. Well maintained - although the signage leaves a bit to be desired - it's quite lacking

You can't go wrong with a visit to the national forest. Though the best experiences are in the lower visitor impact areas.

This national forest is special in that it has lots and lots of ponderosa pine from small trees to old growth. take some time and visit this cool forest.

The National Forest is filled with hundreds of trails for amazing mountain biking, hiking and running. We did over 100 miles of mountain biking, with almost no duplication. We also loved the challenging hike up South Sister.

This forest is so very diverse in landscape and adventures offering visitors with a huge amount of outdoor activities. Road biking, mtn biking, hiking, fishing, rafting, paddle boarding, kayaking, fishing and skiing just to name a few. From lava field to grassy fields this forest is, to me, very unique. The Deschutes River Trail System is a vast area to explore just to name one area with so many more not mentioned that can keep one busy for weeks.
