Top Five Hikes in/around Bend
By Kolby Kirk
1. Shevlin Park - Within the 650-acres of mostly undeveloped land lying just west of town, there's a frayed-rope of trails running through the small canyon. Each season offers a new look at nature. I've seen great horned owls and golden mushrooms in the autumn, bald eagles in the winter, and dozens of types of wildflowers in the spring and summer. Don't let the label of "park" fool you; this place is a nature-lover's paradise.
