A beautiful and interactive museum. where you can walk through a model pioneer village, view some animals, and check out the regional art in a changing exhibit. Learn about the history and geology of the High Desert region. Located about 10 minutes north of Sunriver.

I love the outdoor exhibits...especially the river otters (try to coordinate when they are feeding them) but there are also interesting exhibits inside! 15 minutes south on Highway 97!

Great museum about Central Oregon. There is an inside and outside area. Lots to learn and explore. About a 25 minute drive from the Chalet.

“Smith Rock State Park Just a short drive from Bend lies this treasured State Park in the town of Terrebonne. The park has many miles of developed trails for hiking. The trails have viewpoints along the routes that overlook the Crooked River and nearby rock formations. Smith Rock itself is a 3,200-foot (980 m)-high ridge (above sea level) with a sheer cliff-face overlooking the Crooked River below. The elevation is 2600 feet, making the cliffs about 600 feet high. The geology of Smith Rock is volcanic, which formed sheer cliffs and massive walls and spires on the Western rim making it ideal for rock climbers of all difficulty levels to explore. Needless to say, it draws climbers from all over the word. One of the most iconic spires is 350 feet high, known as Monkey Face. When viewed from certain angles you can actually see a distinctly primate looking face without too much imagination. The park has a great trail system network established. The two main trails are the Summit Trail and Misery Ridge, both of which are steep hillsides. Visitors are required to stay on the trail to preserve plant life. The park is open year-round Day-use hours are from dawn to dusk Dogs are allowed on a leash Day use permits are $5.00 per vehicle day and can be purchased at the self service pay stations summer heat can reach 100° so bring plenty of water if your hiking. Visitors be aware there are Rattlesnakes in the area”

“This Butte is a major focal point located in the center of Bend. It's approximately one mile up. You are able to drive or bike it or utilize the footpath to walk up the dirt path. The view will reward your efforts, offering visitors a sweeping 360 panorama of the Cascade Mountain Range, Calderas, Smith Rock and the City of Bend. There is ample parking and a restroom when you reach the top. The center platform has directional and tutorial information about the area. I suggest you stop at the Pilot Butte Drive-in at the bottom of the hill, grab a milkshake and head up in time to watch the sunset behind the mountains. They also display fireworks off the top on the Fourth of July, which can be seen from nearly everywhere in Bend. Open sunrise to sunset during peak tourist season. Closed during the winter months to drive, but you can still hike it. Best photo opportunities are in the mornings when the sun is shining on the mountains or at sunset. Difficulty: Easy/Moderate Distance: 1.7 miles out and back Elevation: 4,142 ft. Hike: 480 ft. Parking: On top or at lower base on the East side of butte Pet Friendly”
