Trail Overview

Offering epic views of central Oregon, this extension to the very tame Pine Mountain Observatory road can be accessed from either side. It is primarily one lane, but there are wide spots where someone could pass if needed. Cell service is spotty. Be cautious, the elevation and shade can make this very difficult in the winter. In the summer, the observatory makes a great evening destination.


Mostly an easy drive. The end of the trail from Spencer Wells Road can be washed out at times, and there are a few small rocky areas.
