Radlands Trail System
Trailhead Elevation: 3014 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. Routes listed on this website are for informational purposes and intended as a reference guide only.

The new Radlands trail system, built with help from COTA, sits just east of Redmond in an old, burned juniper forest. There are only a few miles of trails so far, but ambitious plans are in the works to build out the system. These trails offer great views, including surrounding Central Oregon mountains and Smith Rock, and the gnarled trees are an interesting backdrop to some great shredding.
Riding will be a bit limited until more trails are blazed, but for now you’ll find several challenging rock features that are worth hitting more than once.
A kiosk for the trailhead stands just west of the BMX track at the High Desert Sports Complex in Redmond. The sports complex is on the north end of town, east of the Highway 97 bypass off of Negus Way (which turns into Maple Avenue).
The coordinates of the trail head are N 44.29195, W -121.14621
