From Warm Springs, travel east towards Madras on Hwy 26. Cross the Deschutes River bridge and make an immediate left turn on NE Mecca Road. Bird slowly along the Deschutes River for 1.3 miles to the campground.
Once in the campground, bird the large trees. Then walk the trail along the river to the NE. This trail goes several miles to Trout Creek Camp- ground and gives a most extensive access to the Deschutes River.
