Crooked River Petroglyph & "The Island" National Natural Landmark - The Cove Palisades State Park

Post by TrailPerspective » March 31st, 2024, 7:21 am

Crooked River Petroglyph and "The Island" National Natural Landmark are historical landmark points of interest right beside each other in The Cove Palisades State Park in Central Oregon. The area is just before the Lower Deschutes River Day Use Area on the Left coming from Madras. The informational placards are rich with history and interesting and it is a low effort to high reward ratio payoff (no real hike necessary), so I highly recommend! This area was explored on March 19, 2024.

Here is the link, its an under 2 Minute Video, a short one with some great info you can pause and read at the informational placards if interested in the history:
