This hike showcases classic central Oregon landscape dotted with sagebrush and guarded by hoodoos. A deep basalt canyon carved out by the Deschutes River plays home to the 1-mile round-trip trek to Steelhead Falls. Not known for cascades that exceed little more than glorified rapids, the Deschutes tumbles over 18-foot Steelhead Falls in a three-pronged plunge that is as noteworthy as 18 feet can get.
