At a time when almost all things are done online and virtually, making your physical and mental health a priority is important.
And what better way to get our minds and bodies into action is to get outside and explore the wonders Maupin, Oregon can bring!

Kick off the day on the Sherar’s Falls Scenic Bikeway which conveniently starts in the middle of town where you can load up on any snacks at the Maupin market.
The Scenic Bikeway guides you past a series of breathtaking spots including White River Falls State Park and Sherar’s Falls. For cyclists, this is definitely a dream come true.
The 33-mile route starts at the city park in Maupin, passes through the little community of Tygh Valley, and follows the river’s course through the canyon.

From the western banks to crossing the other side to see the bikeway’s namesake, Sherar’s Falls, this is an ideal spot to hop off the bike
and enjoy the view or come back another time and bring a camera to capture Mother Nature at her best.

To cap off the day, bring out the inner angler in you and experience trout fishing in the dark with the Evening Hatch Trout Float.
The boat launches at 5 PM daily when the light nearly tucks in behind the canyon walls, perfect to get you, the trout, and the bug hatches wild!
