The Central Oregon LandWatch will host a free 8-mile loop hike along Crater Ditch and Broken Top Crater Saturday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The hike will be led by an experienced photographer and a geologist. Participants can learn photographic techniques and about the hydrogeology that is the underpinning of the Tumalo Creek watershed.

Hikers should meet at Nancy P’s, 1054 N.W. Milwaukee Ave. in Bend, at 7:30 a.m. to carpool. High-profile vehicles and Northwest Forest passes are required to access the Broken Top Trailhead.
