Blue Basin Overlook Trail

The Blue Basin Overlook Trail is in the Sheep Rock Unit of the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument. At this part of the trail I felt like I was about to step into a Hollywood set for Star Trek.

The last trail in the Painted Hills Unit of the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument, the Red Hill Trail is short and sweet.

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!
