Homestead Trail

The Homestead Trail runs along the west (left) bank of the Little Deschutes, across the river from the old Vandevert Homestead. These photos were taken during a trail walk on September 7, 2015.

The "new" house (1952) at the Homestead where the river makes a sharp turn to the left. The dock was rebuilt out of the Vandevert's old wagon bridge.
