Ecola State Park to Indian Beach

wow! The views were breathtaking! It was a very simple hike but so worth every second. Dogs are also allowed on the beach as long as they're leashed which was a plus because my puppy was thrilled about the sand. Overall a great place to spend the day.

Spencer Butte Trail

Multiple ways to get to the top from a loop to lollipop. Good workout on the thighs. Near top there are multiple trails around the summit. Can be slippery when wet. I'd rate it as moderate difficulty particularly on the west side of the summit. Watch your footing.

Abiqua Creek: Abiqua Falls

5 Completed 1 Reviews

We went to find this place in hopes for a little day hike and an amazing view. We had our 4x4, directions and day supplies. Using the directions and your odometer didn't get us anywhere close to the falls. We tried to use our phones GPS but since there is no phone service there is no phone GPS. So after driving down the wrong roads (there are no road signs after the 5.2 miles except one that says gate may be closed at any time), which surprisingly had turns that closely matched the directions, we found a locked gate leading to nowhere. So 2 hours later we decided to head to Silver Falls, by the time we got to there it was raining so we didn't stop. Once we made it back home we google mapped the directions and found that there is a "right turn to stay on Bridge Creek Rd" that clearly shows on the map but if you look at the same place using a satellite view the road you want actually has been modified to go straight through and there is a second road that goes to the right. Just stay on the main road and you should be able to make it. Oh well, "we had a nice drive." So take your non-phone GPS and a map (not directions) and enjoy! We're going to try again when there is snow. Should be amazing.

This a wonderful hike. I hiked it several times and it's always rewarding especially when you come to rest by the shores of Duffy lake on a sunny day. A Truly spectacular place.

Storey Burn Loop Trail

This 8.1 mile 'loop' ended up being 12+ miles. We never found the 'loop' (: ended up by University Falls. Then tried to go through Rogers Camp to follow Gales Creek Trail. Never found the trailhead so had to go back the way we came. Bring a map, and lots of water.

Blue Basin Overlook Trail
by

12 Completed 8 Reviews

Shortish (slightly under 4 miles) hike around and then into the beautiful Blue Basin, part of the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument. The trail goes up to the ridge overlooking the blue basin and provides amazing views of the basin itself as well as the John Day River's valley. While the trail is under 4 miles, the climb to the ridge is a bit steep and would get slippery in wet weather. If you walk the loop clockwise you will have the option to finish with the short spur into the basin before heading back to the parking lot.
