Carved by ancient volcanic activity, the 700 miles of the Cascade Mountain range are known throughout the nation as a mecca for outdoor adventures. From the clear-flowing rivers along wooded trails to the sweeping mountaintop views, this region has seemingly endless opportunities for exploring the local geology and immersing yourself in nature’s bounty. Alongside experts, experience central Oregon from many different perspectives as you whitewater raft the pristine McKenzie River, bike through remote pine forests and hike along the picturesque mountainside to connect with the wonders of the great outdoors.
