Horse Ridge Hike Photos
April 9, 2011
Off Highway 20 east of Bend, this hike takes you up Sandy Canyon for an invigorating, and steep at times, climb of 1300 feet. Along the way, look back at Powell Butte, Bear Creek Butte, and the Cascades in all their splendor. At the top, head west 2 miles to an overlook to gaze once again on the Cascades and south to Newberry, and a perfect lunch spot. After lunch, head north off-trail to look upon the "Old One", a 1600 year old Juniper, patiently watching the centuries pass. Then down the ridge to the trailhead. A day not to be missed!
