Fort Rock State Park - Oregon
What to do if you have little time : a walk on the trail that runs along Fort Rock
Fort Rock is a rock formation that looks like a crater but also a fort. It can be seen from far because the surrounding landscape is rather flat. To enjoy an overall view, it is not necessary to be at the foot of Fort Rock, the views from the Fort Rock road or the Lake Cabin road being more interesting. Very little crowd.
Fort Rock State Park
If you want to see more than the view from afar, there is a loop trail of 1.4 mile that allows to walk around inside the "crater", but also to climb on the edge and have a view overlooking the surrounding plain. If you make the effort to come to Fort Rock, so take the opportunity to do this easy trail.
Access : from the small town of La Pine, south of Bend, take US 97 south for 1.9 mile. Turn left on OR 31 for 29.2 miles and then left again on the county road 5-10 for 6.3 miles to the city of Fort Rock. Turn left again on Cabin Lake Road for 1 mile and a final left turn onto the county road 5-11A for 0.6 mile. The entrance of Fort Rock State Park is on the right.
