April 18, 2018 LA GRANDE, Ore. – Oregon’s newest long-distance hike, the 750-mile Oregon Desert Trail, will be on display April 25 at Eastern Oregon University.
The EOU Outdoor Adventure Program presents an evening exploring the route with representatives of the Oregon Natural Desert Association. Renee Patrick will share insights about the hike, which traverses southeast Oregon’s high desert country. The trail promises some of the most spectacular natural areas of the state’s dry side, including Hart Mountain National Antelope Refuge, Steens Mountain and the Owyhee Canyonlands.
Community members, EOU students and outdoor enthusiasts of all ages are invited to experience photos and stories from the trail starting at 6 p.m. in Zabel Hall’s Lewis Auditorium.
“You could be among some of the first hikers in the country to traverse this new amazing route,” said OAP Director Michael Hatch. “Come and get some valuable information on this new opportunity in southeast Oregon.”
