Painted Hills + Sheep Rock

I’m spending time in every one of Oregon’s Seven Wonders this year for work on a new hiking book. I went back to the Painted Hills for a camping and hiking trip this past weekend. If you haven’t been there yet, I highly recommend it!

Here are the hikes shown here:

  • Painted Hills overlook trail (1/2 mile)
  • Painted Cove trail (1/4 mile)
  • Blue Basin trail (3-1/4 miles)
  • Island in Time trail (1-1/4 mile)
