    100 Classic Hikes in Oregon (The Mountaineers Books)

    "“Remote” hardly seems adequate to describe Three Forks. Hidden at the bottom of a precipitous canyon at the end of a lonely dirt road, this little-known site is the definition of isolated. But solitude is only one good reason to visit this place. The best reason is the scenery, highlighted by the meandering Owyhee River and its spectacular, 1000-foot-deep canyon of dark basalt and lighter-colored rhyolite. The list of reasons also includes abundant wildlife such as pronghorn, golden eagles, and coyotes. The final reason is that Three Forks has one of the best thermal springs in the Pacific Northwest."
