Directions

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. Routes listed on this website are for informational purposes and intended as a reference guide only.

Trailhead: From Bend, head 22 miles north on Highway 97 through Redmond and on to Terrebonne. Turn right on Smith Rock Road and follow it 4 miles to Lone Pine Road. Head left and proceed 3 miles to gravel Road 5710 on the left, and park in the large lot.

Highlights: Lots of up and down with some great single-track. Expect wide-open views of surrounding mountains and high desert.

Seasons: All year, weather permitting
