Highlight: 2730-190 Road
As the 2730-190 Road descends through the forest, the trees begin their slow transformation from alpine species into scrub oak and ponderosa pine. This trail marks the transition from the Cascades full of lush, dense coniferous forests into the dry, open savanna and grasslands of Central Oregon. The road skirts along the south side of the Mount Hood National Recreation Area Fifteen Mile Unit where a deep canyon lays waiting to be discovered by those who hike beyond the trees. An abandoned campground at the terminus of the 2730-190 Road gives the whole route an eerie, forgotten feeling that adds to the mystery of the transition of ecosystems on the way to the Central Oregon desert.
