Scout Camp Trail


3-mile loop 
650 feet elevation gain 
Open all year 

Left: Deschutes River opposite Whychus Creek confluence
Below: Shallow cave along the trail

Often sunny even when other trails are closed by rain or snow, this loop descends into the Deschutes River canyon past cliffs, caves, and wildflowers. And although you drive here on a labyrinth of paved roads through the Crooked River Ranch’s sprawling subdivision of ranchettes, the canyon itself is maintained as wilderness.
