One of the fastest growing activities using a GPS is referred to as geocaching. Think of it like a treasure hunt where your GPS has the coordinates of the treasure and you have to hike, bike, climb, or even swim to get to it. These treasures are commonly known as caches.

Central Oregon offers premier destinations for riding/driving off-highway vehicles. Please visit the Combined Off-Highway Vehicle Operations (COHVOPS) website for all the information you need to know, before you go. The website provides maps of Central Oregon OHV areas, current trail and weather conditions, equipment requirements, and lots of additional background information.
COHVOPS manages OHV opportunities on the Prineville District of the Bureau of Land Management and the Deschutes and Ochoco National Forests.
If you'd like to explore Central Oregon's beauty, there are many scenic drives on the Prineville District where incredible natural and historic vistas are on display. There is one National Scenic Byway, one State Scenic Byway, and three BLM Backcountry Byways to explore. These drives provide scenic views of nationally recognized landscapes on the Deschutes, John Day, and Crooked Wild and Scenic Rivers, while others take the visitor back in time through the high desert landscape of eastern Oregon.
