For nature lovers and active, outdoor adventurers visiting Bend Oregon, it doesn’t take long to realize that Northwest Bend combines all of the things that probably attracted you to Central Oregon in the first place. Probably the most striking natural feature of Bend is the beautiful Deschutes River, home to numerous parks and wildlife, as well as an extensive collection of hiking and biking trails in the Deschutes River Trails system. Walk or ride your bike down to the river and then canoe, kayak or raft for a short float surrounded by large pine trees and stunning views of the Cascade Mountains. Speaking of mountains, world-class snow sports at Mt. Bachelor are minutes away. If you only have an afternoon free you can still make it out mountains and back on a beautiful day. And of course if you like to fish, Northwest Bend is an angler’s paradise, central to many of the greatest fishing rivers in Central Oregon.
