When it comes to floating the Deschutes River in Central Oregon, the float in Bend is the easiest place for visitors to do so without signing up for a package tour.
This weekend we were on a mission to float the river near Tumalo, Central Oregon. We had heard rumors about floating in Tumalo but found very few details online (hence why we’re sharing our tubing experience from Tumalo State Park into town in this blog post).
The walk to Steelhead Falls from the trailhead is a short 0.5 miles one way. The trail continues down the river, but the falls is the main attraction and most scenic viewpoint. This is also a popular area for fishing.
The Cline Butte Loop Trail is an easy-to-moderate hike in Eagle Crest, not far from Redmond, Oregon.
Cline Falls on the Deschutes River is a short walk with a beautiful viewpoint just off the Mackenzie Highway, near Eagle Crest resort. There are a number of places to approach the falls, but we think the view is best from the East side of the river.
The iconic Redmond Hotel was originally built in 1928 and is on the National Register of Historic Places. Although closed to guests since 2005, it is expected to reopen in 2019, becoming a premier boutique Redmond Oregon hotel and accelerating the revitalization of downtown Redmond along with it.
We love the alluring charm and adventure around small town Tumalo, tucked along the Deschutes River, just a short drive from Redmond or Bend. And one of our favorite eateries in all of Central Oregon is a cozy cafe called Tumalo Coffee House.
