ONDA National Trails Day: Badlands, Bluegrass, Burritos and Bitter

Learn about the Oregon Badlands Wilderness

(Bend, OR) The Oregon Natural Desert Association invites you to celebrate National Trails Day on June 7. In partnership with Pine Mountain Sports and Friends of the Badlands we are proud to sponsor the first Badlands, Bluegrass, Burritos and Bitter National Trails Day event.

$10 per person includes round-trip shuttle from Pine Mountain Sports, guided hike, live bluegrass music, burritos, and a complimentary Badlands Bitter by Silver Moon (for 21 and over). $5 fee for 3:00 p.m. onwards includes bluegrass music and burritos.

RSVP required for hikes due to limited shuttle space. Visit Pine Mountain Sports at 255 NW Century Drive to reserve your space, or call 385-8080.

9:30 a.m. Shuttle ride from Pine Mountain Sports to the Oregon Badlands where participants will hike and learn about the area proposed as a Wilderness Area. Two separate hikes, 3.5 – 4 hours in duration, will depart from the Flatiron Trailhead and the Badlands Rock Trailhead.

2:00 p.m. Shuttles will return hikers to Pine Mountain Sports.

3:00 - 5:00 p.m. The day will conclude with a gathering with burritos, a special Badlands Bitter Double Bad brew from Silver Moon Brewing and live bluegrass music at Pine Mountain Sports. The party will also include a short program presented by David Eddleston of Friends of the Badlands, and a raffle with prizes donated by Pine Mountain Sports.
