“This is the longest loop trail on the Crooked River National Grassland.”— Trail Run Project Staff
This trail was designed with endurance horse riders in mind; however, hikers and mountain bikers are welcome to use it as well.
The trail is mostly dirt with some rock, part of the trail will go down old roads.
The Crooked River National Grassland is part of a 2.5-million-acre complex of National Forest lands in central Oregon The Deschutes and Ochoco National Forests along with the Crooked River National Grassland extend about 100 miles along the east side of the Cascade Mountains They are rich in human and natural history and offer a multitude of diverse scenic and recreation opportunities.
Thia grassland is most associated with the nearby Ochoco National Forest, which is part of the old Blue Mountain Forest Reserve, established in 1906 by President Roosevelt. The Reserve was divided into four smaller units in 1908 - the Deschutes, Malheur, Whitman and Umatilla National Forests. In 1911 the Ochoco National Forest was established from parts of the Malheur and Deschutes National Forests. In 1960 Congress created the Crooked River National Grassland, which today is administered by the Ochoco National Forest.
