The Deschutes River Trail is single track riding, approximately 17 miles round trip and just minutes from Bend, OR. The trail makes a 975ft. elevation gain one-way, has many access points (with bathrooms and parking) and follows the Deschutes River as it winds it's way through ancient lava canyons and grassy meadows.

This trail is suitable for beginner to expert riders, very well kept with wide paths, easy grades and many unique features including water falls, lava flows, and swimming holes.

Navigation is simple with the river serving as a reliable landmark. There are numerous trails that come in to the main trail, but if you keep to the river there should be know problems.

Pets are allowed on leash and the trail is shared use with hikers and horses, so be careful on corners and as you pass. Also, depending on the time of day and season, mosquitoes can be a problem on the lower sections, so bring bug juice or ride fast.

Directions: From Bend, Oregon drive west on the Cascades Lakes Highway 46 (approx. 6 miles) Take a left before the Golf Course and drive to the Meadow Picnic Area.
