The Deschutes River meanders along a portion of the northwest boundary of North Rim, providing breathtaking views and a bountiful supply of wildlife habitat. Residents of North Rim have direct access to the 10-mile Deschutes River Trail, a key connection to downtown Bend and a venue for exercise and simple outdoor enjoyment. The river is a valued natural resource that is vital to the health of our region while providing beauty and daily enjoyment for all.

The developer of North Rim, Brooks Resources, made a financial contribution to the The North Rim Deschutes River Fund at the Oregon Community Foundation for each lot sold in the community. This fund helps preserve our natural environment by improving the stream flow and water quality in the Deschutes River Basin.
