The Oregon Desert Trail

May 8, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join the Oregon Desert Trail Coordinator Renee Patrick for an introduction to a long-distance
adventure in Harney County. This 750-mile route traverses some stunning natural features in
the high desert like the Hart Mountain National Antelope Refuge and Steens Mountain, and can
be explored on foot, horseback, boat or even skis in the winter.

Building upon the idea of Burns native Russ Pengelly and his Desert Trail route, originally
conceived in the 1960s, the newer Oregon Desert Trail ties into the older Desert Trail route and
much more.

Find hot springs, wide-open vistas and incredible geology on the route where one will be much
more likely to see herds of pronghorn antelope and the well-camouflaged sage-grouse than
other people.
