Back Country Rides in the Outback (Lakeview)
Trailhead Elevation: 4842 ft
In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions. For travel options plus weather and road conditions, visit tripcheck.com, call 511 (in Oregon only), 800.977.6368 or 503.588.2941.

Take Highway 395 towards Lakeview to Highway 140. Head east to Warner Road. At Warner Road, you have the option of picking the trails you’d like to ride.
If you go north (left) on Warner Road, you’ll ride to Bulls Prairie, with gorgeous serenity and views, water available along the way, camping areas, bathrooms and Drakes Peak Lookout or Aspen Cabin for rent. You can continue further north and get to Warner Viewpoint, which is breathtaking.
If you go right (south) on Warner Road, you’ll get to numerous trails — and if you climb to the top, you’ll have a spectacular view of Mt. Shasta. There’s plenty of camping and fishing in this area also.The views are magnificent and you’re more likely to encounter wildlife than you are another person on these trails — we’re the best-kept secret. You will be in the Fremont National Forest; some areas are wilderness study areas. You can’t beat the views, the peacefulness and the challenge.
