Oregon Desert Trail

The Oregon Desert Trail is a 750-mile long distance hiking route designed to connect people with the incredibly diverse landscape of Oregon’s dry side. The route is located on public land and public rights-of-way that stitches existing hiking trails, old Jeep tracks, and historical wagon roads together with long stretches of cross-country travel to help hikers, bikers, horseback riders, skiers and even boaters discover some of the most spectacular natural areas east of the Cascades.
