To honor the tenth anniversary of Oregon Badlands Wilderness designation, ONDA is hosting a six-month long exploration challenge.
Arriving in the Badlands, so named for its rugged and harsh terrain, can feel like stepping onto another planet.
Explore the Badlands and you will find some of the oldest trees in Oregon, bright displays of desert wildflowers and castle-like rock formations. You might even see Native American pictographs. 30,000 acres of fascinating lava flows and ancient juniper trees await you, all just 15 miles east of Bend, Oregon.
There are 50+ miles of trails in Badlands. Can you hike, horseback ride or run them all?
