Punchbowl Falls Oregons Hood River Valley
September 9 - September 16
Punchbowl Falls County Park, located on the West Fork of the Hood River, near Dee, was acquired from a private timber company by the Western Rivers Conservancy just a few years ago, and finally came into public ownership in 2015 when Hood River County received a state grant to transfer the land from the conservancy. Trailkeepers of Oregon (TKO) has since been busy constructing a new loop trail geared toward families and casual hikers looking for an easy stroll with a lot of scenery. Next Fall will be the time to turn to the trail leading down to the confluence of the West Fork and main Hood Rivers. New trail development will be underway – brushing, duffing and building up trail tread to construct the new connection to this special place.
