In a mountain valley lies the serene Bates State Park which is surrounds by the John Day River, Bridge Creek and Clear Creek. This trail goes around Bates Pond and then follows Bridge Creek for a while before making a loop trail along a small ridge overlooking the valley. Bates used to be home to a flourishing lumber mill that was closed down in 1975. When it closed the townspeople moved away, with no work to keep them in Bates. Now a state park, this area is preserved for generations to enjoy.
