Tuesday, May 14, 2019

Alt Names

Crooked River National Grassland, Deschutes Basin, Cascade Range, Henderson Flats Staging Area

Last Known StatusOpen

This large offroad area offers about 18 miles of marked and rated trails, a separate play area and a beginners loop. The main staging area has plenty of room for trailers and also has some loading ramps, picnic tables and some shady spots.

The main routes are mostly smooth and fast and form nice long loops.The terrain is a mix of sand and clay and the trails wind through a juniper and pine tree forest with some scenic mountain views.

Camping is permitted at the main staging area and there are also a few dispersed primitive sites in the surrounding area.
