Winter Is The Best Time To Explore Oregon’s Badlands

The Oregon Badlands Wilderness encompasses 29,180 acres just east of Bend, and it’s a vast area that’s full of volcanic rock formations and juniper trees. The Badlands can get pretty hot during the summer months, but in the winter, it’s a vast wonderland, and accessible for those who wish to hike, photograph the landscape, or just bask in the beauty of this rugged place.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date.
