Juniper Hills Desert Wildflower Hike


Explore Juniper Hills Preserve.

Juniper Hills serves as a vital migratory corridor for elk, antelope and other wildlife, and hosts a wide variety of wildflowers and grasses. Nestled between the Ochoco Mountains and the Maury Mountains, this remarkably diverse Central Oregon landscape is accented by ancient western juniper trees and features an exceptional array of John Day and Clarno "painted hills" formations.

Join preserve staff and volunteer docents on a 2-3 mile hike through the colored soils in search of desert wildflowers! We will travel on uneven terrain gaining about 500 feet in elevation, so hikers must be physically fit.
