Farm Well Horse Camp/Trailhead
At 35 minutes southeast of Silver Lake, Oregon, Farm Well Horse Camp is conveniently located along the Fremont National Recreation Trail. Farm Well offers five campsites, picnic tables, camp fire rings, one vaulted toilet, horse corrals, and room to maneuver a horse trailer.
The forest-mountain setting affords views of farm and range land as well as a great vista of Hager Mountain. The cone-shaped single peak dominates the landscape and the look-out tower is visible atop the 7,200 foot pinnacle. Wildlife you may spy at Farm Well and connecting trails include deer, songbirds, hawks, and bald and golden eagles.
It’s about a three mile ride from Farm Well to the Hager Mountain Lookout. This summit rewards riders with a panoramic view, including the Cascades to the west and Mount Shasta to the south. You can keep riding to Thompson Reservoir (five more miles), a popular fishing destination. Trout are stocked in the reservoir on a regular basis. This reservoir was created in 1921 and provides water for more than 2,700 acres of irrigated land.
There is no potable water. Visitors need to pack plenty of water.
