Hardman Routes



Ride Through History

 Hardman, located 20 miles SW of Heppner is an Old Western Town that in the 1800’s was a major Freight Wagon layover from the John Day Valley to Arlington. Hardman at that time had three general stores, two hotels, two feed stables, two blacksmiths, a saloon, a barber shop, a church, schools, a post office, a newspaper, and a telephone office. Other infrastructure included two meeting halls, a skating rink, and a racetrack When the railroad came into Heppner in November of 1888 delivering supplies that ended the need for hauling freight through Hardman. Overtime Hardman became a Ghost Town as residents packed up and headed to Heppner for jobs.
The Treo Ranch Lodge is located 4 miles West of Hardman on Harman Ridge Road. Phil and Kathy Carlson has owned Treo since September of 1987, at that time they started a pheasant hunting operation which operates from September through March. In 2012 Treo introduced bicycling to compliment the hunting operation and fill in the unoccupied months of April 1st to September 10th. Today Treo Bike Tours is known for its cycling hospitality in providing lodging, food service, transportation, and support.
