Bird Watching

Oregon Cascade Birding Trail sites are located nearby and include Trillium Lake,Timberline Lake and Timberline Lodge. At the Bonney Butte Hawk Watch raptor migration program (generally operational from the end of August to the end of October), visitors can observe the tallying, banding and recording of data for migrating raptors during their fall migration. This is a great opportunity to see these incredible birds up close. The rough gravel road to Bonney Butte is best driven slowly by high clearance vehicles.
