This holiday weekend, #getoutside and explore your amazing public lands with friends and family!

The Chimney Rock segment of the Lower Crooked Wild and Scenic River is becoming increasingly popular for all kinds of recreation. Thousands of people visit each year to enjoy the incredible fishing, camping, and scenic views.

The area provides for many types of recreation activities including: camping, fishing, hiking, and driving, or bicycling on the Crooked River Backcountry Byway. A paved portion of the 43-mile long Lower Crooked River Back Country Byway winds its way through the river canyon. It’s got it all!

Check out this amazing stretch of river here:
