Larkspur Trail Description

Larkspur Trail winds for nearly four miles along the east side of Bend, connecting several parks and Pilot Butte Middle School.

The northern half of the trail, which is paved, begins in Stover Park (1650 NE Watson Drive), a popular community spot with a baseball field, playground, drinking fountain, and restrooms.

Continuing south through tree-lined neighborhoods, you’ll soon have the opportunity to take a short spur west to Hollinshead Park, which is worth a stop. The park was formerly a working ranch and features several historic farm buildings, a museum, and a community garden.

South of the park, the trail loops around Pilot Butte Scenic Viewpoint. Take a trail to the summit of an old cinder cone for a spectacular view of the city, the high desert, and the Cascade Mountains.

South of Pilot Butte, you’ll traverse Pinewood Natural Area on a gravel portion of the trail. Shortly therefore, the trail ends in Larkspur Park. Much of the park serves as a nature preserve, but other areas are developed, including a picnic shelter, the city’s largest playground, restrooms, and places to play horseshoes, bocce, and basketball.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking and restrooms are available in: Hollinshead Park (1235 NE Jones Rd), Larkspur Park (1700 SE Reed Market Road), and Pilot Butte Scenic Viewpoint.
