Hard to find on dirt road

Interesting to know about this forest but you need a quad to go through it! You should also have a suv to get there. Long, dusty, bumpy road! We had trouble finding all the sites around because they aren’t marked very good at all.

Long drive on a dusty road.

A cool forest of Pine trees where Pine do not usually grow. Dusty and rough road. 4 wheel drive recommended.

There's more to do nearby

Actually I have not been in the forest itself, but TR does not list other local attractions
- Crack in the ground - a geological fault, where you can walk in between the tall walls, and experience being...in the crack :)
- Green Mountain lookout - open to the public, the fire tower offers a 360 degree view of the area, mainly the nearby Devil's Garden, four craters lava field.
There is also Derrick cave, but the access is now very difficult because a land owner is illegally blocking the fire road that provides access to it.
You can try to go around thru Cabin lake road (next to Fort Rock) turn on NF-22 and then...trying to find your way in. The Cabin Lake resort(?), has also camping and bird watching opportunities
There is also an Ice Cave west of that intersection on nf-22
The Sand Dunes are worth to see and walk on, but stay to the west, and walk around the restricted use area - btw, the first campground is best to stay away from all the OHV people, but it's even more primitive, and you better have a bit more car's clearance
Further south, you have the lakes with some bird wildlife, and Hart Mountain Antelope refuge 9 worth to go see it and stay near the hot springs they have on the top area

We drove from Bend to see the Lost Forest and really it's not worth the trip. To make it more worthwhile I suggest going to the Park, visiting the Central Oregon Sand Dunes, and Fossil Lake all within a short drive.
