New Hikes in Eastern Oregon

Posted on in categories Event , Hiking , Travel & Adventure

Monday September 21st, 5:30 PM – 7 PM Online Event Hosted by Oregon Natural Desert Association

Join Oregon hiking expert Bill Sullivan for a VIRTUAL slideshow tour of a dozen new trails he discovered while researching the third edition of his book, “100 Hikes/Travel Guide: Eastern Oregon.”

Discover a colorful badlands on the Owyhee River, a new wilderness with cactus flowers on the John Day, and a viewpoint hike to a ranch at the east end of the Columbia Gorge. We’ll even explore half a dozen little-known hot springs. As always, Sullivan spices his talk with the geology, wildlife and history of the land.
