Tumulus Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Oregon Badlands Wilderness formed in a unique way. The main lava tube that supplied lava ?ow to the Badlands ruptured, and eventually the errant lava built up the giant shield volcano that today we call the Badlands.

The landscape consists of in?ated lava, volcanic ash, and pumice, and sagebrush dotted with mature juniper trees. High Desert ?ora and ancient volcanic geology combine to create an otherworldly feel in a beautiful but desolate area just a quick drive from Bend."

"The entire Badlands feels remote, but the Tumulus Trail is a little more so. The trailhead is farther from the highway than others in the area, so you’ll have plenty of privacy. The Tumulus Trail is one of the longer official paths in the Badlands and extends far into the desert until it connects with the Dry River Trail." Read more
