the boulder feold at the end is fun to hop though and if u are paying attention there are animals everywhere.

Great trail - awesome nature and beautiful trees!

Easy hike. Trails are well maintained and easily identifiable. Numerous options to determine how far you want to hike.

Closed much of the year, due to Falcon breeding. Nice hike this Xmas with plenty of snow, just wear gaiters. Park right off exit and walk by humps to TH. You can get ~2 miles out and same back, but you can then take other pathways.https://www.blm.gov/or/districts/prineville/recreation/files/Badlands_Overview_Map.pdf

This is not the location of this trail. The trail is out hwy 20. We are locals, and hike dry river canyon all the time. This is a bad waypoint.

This trail gives you a real taste of the central Oregon dessert. Mostly level and sand to take home in your shoes

Take water. This is the desert. Great area for hiking or mtn biking. As you are going east on HWY 20 from Bend, the parking lot is at mile marker 16 - not a lot of signage. On a clear day - beautiful views of the Cascades. Great desert flowers at the right times.

Tried to find it but the map did not take me far enough out. Was about 10 miles short of the trail head. Will go out again to find it.

Breathtaking, beautiful trail for all levels. Rock-hopping optional. Natural geological formations, ancient Juniper trees, incredible views, unique wildlife (Mountain Goats). During winter months the trail is EXTREMELY ICY. Remember to be respectful of private property close by. Recommended for everyone!

The Flatiron loop trail in Oregon Badlands Wilderness offers subtle attractions. Lava flows, bright, small flowers (in season), tall junipers, and gradual changes in the microenvironment. Folks have wandered bit to explore the lava flows so make sure you don't lose your route.
