Join Carol Moorehead for a wildflower hike around Coffer Ranch, a conserved private ranch outside of Prineville.

Join the Deschutes Land Trust and Carol Moorehead for a wildflower hike around Coffer Ranch, a conserved private ranch outside of Prineville. We’ll hike along Mill Creek and enjoy scenic views of unique rock formations while learning more about the springs and wetlands the ranch protects. Then, we’ll head up into the hills to search for a myriad of native wildflowers including phlox, prairie star, balsamroot, and bitterroot. Registration is required and opens 1 month prior to the event.

Hike Rating: This is a challenging ~6 mile hike across uneven terrain.

Route: This hike will start along the banks of Mill Creek and follow ranch access roads up into the hills overlooking the creek and fields. Terrain will be uneven at times.

Elevation gain/loss: This hike is challenging with ~200′ of elevation gain/loss.

What to Bring: Snacks/lunch, water, closed toe shoes. Dress for the weather.

Accessibility: The Land Trust is working to make our Walks + Hikes as accessible as possible. Please email us at event@deschuteslandtrust.org at least one week in advance if there is something we can do or provide to support you in participating in this outing to the fullest and we will accommodate as possible.
