Plan A Trip

Be advised! Stretches of the Oregon Desert Trail route are exceedingly remote. Read the Oregon Desert Trail guidebook descriptions in detail and seriously consider any notes on water scarcity or challenging terrain before setting out.

To make planning easier, ONDA has divided the full 750-mile trail route into four regions and a total of 25 sections of 20 to 40 miles each, all of varying difficulty, and we have extensive information to help you understand what you are getting into and prepare accordingly.
