Ontario, Oregon
Please check out our Patrol page
    Eastern Oregon begins at Ontario just across the Snake River from Idaho, midway between Salt Lake City and Portland.  It is the largest city in Malheur County.  Ontario was born on the mud, dust, sand and grassland south of the confluence of the Snake and Malheur Rivers just north of the Oregon Trail.  The land around Ontario has spacious, rugged areas, as well as prime farming land.  It has become a leading agricultural and farm-to-market center with bountiful crops of onions, sugar beets, russet potatoes and peppermint growing in the surrounding area.

    Ontario is multi-cultural with large Japanese, Basque, Mexican and American Indian populations. To celebrate this diversity, Ontario has built the Four Rivers Cultural Center, a 10,000-square-foot museum containing interactive exhibits that show how the people of the community have worked to overcome their differences while building on their similarities.

    From Ontario you can visit many historic and scenic areas.  Visit where the Oregon Trail crosses the Snake River into what would become Oregon.  Walk the wagon ruts of the long past wagon trains at Kenney Pass.  Drop down from Kenney Pass and visit the Malheur county seat at Vale. The Vale Heritage Reflection Mural Society tells the story of the Oregon Trail pioneers with a series of murals painted on many of the towns buildings.

    Ontario is a stepping off point for visits to the Leslie Gulch-Succor Creek National Back Country Byway.  This byway gives access to rugged and spectacular geologic formations.  Ontario is close to Hells Canyon Recreation Area.  Hells Canyon is the deepest river gorge in North America with rugged peaks, abundant wildlife and recreation for everyone

    Continue west along the Oregon Trail to Baker City and visit the National Historic Oregon Trail Interpretive Center at Flagstaff Hill.

     The area abounds in history, recreation and excitement.  Come visit, and Enjoy.
