Stein's Pillar

Steins Pillar

Steins Pillar stands 350 feet tall, towering above the meadows and ponderosa and lodgepole pine trees below. Named after Major Enoch Steen, a misspelling took hold and we have Steins Pillar.

It is a remnant of valley full of ash and volcanic tuff. Years of erosion left this behind.

Heading east on U.S. Hwy-26 from Prineville for nine miles/14.5 km, turn north onto the Mill Creek Road near the east end of Ochoco Reservoir. Drive in about eight miles/13 km and you cannot miss it.
