Added 2/6/2014 8:00 pm-Snow shoes recommended due to recent snow fall!
4.6 Miles round trip starting from the parking area, easy to moderate hike/snowshoe. Conditions unknown until 2/6/14, could be icy spots with possible snow. Bring snacks and water for dogs and yourself.
Deschutes National Forest requires dogs to be leashed from May 15-September 15 only, therefore, this is an OFF LEASH EVENT :)
DogPAC and Bend Park & Recreation District remind all dog owners to be responsible for their pet and to “scoop the poop” whenever they are in a public space. For additional information on Dog PAC, visit www.dogpac.org.
