This beautiful trail follows the course of the spring-fed Fall River. The uncrowded route takes you through immense groves of ponderosa pine trees and offers many scenic viewpoints of the river where you may see Canada geese, ospreys, and mallard ducks. Located in the Deschutes National Forest southwest of Bend, Fall River is a beautiful spring-fed river stocked with brown, brook, and rainbow trout. The source of the river is situated about 2 miles northwest of Pringle Falls on the Deschutes River. From this location the river meanders northeast for about 8 miles until it joins the Deschutes River about 6 miles below Pringle Falls. This route parallels the course of the river for 3.2 miles. The tour takes you through a forest corridor of stately ponderosa pine trees. These yellow-barked giants are prized for their clear, even grain, which is used for door and window frames.
