Blue Basin Overlook Trail

Sheep Rock Trails - John Day Fossil Beds National Monument

Blue Basin Overlook Trail

We went to two units of the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument yesterday (Painted Hills Unit and Sheep Rock Unit). I already want to go back to do the unit we missed (Clarno Unit) and catch a few of the trails we didn’t have time for. We hiked 8 of the trails. Most were short (under a mile each) and flat. However, the Blue Basin Overlook Trail was over 3 miles and included 760 feet of elevation gain. That wouldn’t have been so bad if it was our first trail of the day, but it was our 7th. The views though… wow!
