Construction Advisory
Effective Tuesday, April 28, 2015: The summit road will be closed to vehicle traffic for approximately two weeks for an erosion mitigation project. Pedestrian traffic will be rerouted around the work areas. We appreciate everyone's cooperation in avoiding the work areas and thank you for your patience while we perform this much-needed project.

Symbols represent major park features & activities. Blue icons mean some/all are ADA accessible.

Come and explore an old cinder cone located just east of Bend. Hike up and around on one of three trails. The trails wind through stands of juniper and sage. All of the trails lead to the summit. Once at the top, get ready for a grand panoramic view of the high desert.


To the west at sunset, the glow of snowcapped Cascade mountains put on a spectacular show. Three Sisters, Mt. Jefferson, Black Butte and Mt. Hood are some of the highlights.
