Mark's Creek Sno-Park

Area Status: Open
Mark's Creek Sno-Park

Mark's Creek Sno-Park is located off of Highway 26 and is a great location for enjoying the Central Oregon winter.  

The steep grade and elevation of the hill allow visitors to choose how much thrill they desire.  

For those that are not interested in sledding, there is a large communal fire ring near the trees at the base of the hill.  

Please try to use this location for your fire when you visit so that your recreational experience has less impact on the environment.  

Mark’s Creek Sled Hill is an ideal sno-park for anyone who prefers traveling on relatively well maintained roads, easy access, non-motorized winter recreation, and of course SLEDDING!

NOTE: Check the ODOT TripCheck camera at Ochoco Divide to guage how much snow is on the ground in the sno-park vicinity.
