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.

The trail follows an old railroad grade from the edge of town to the road above Lake Simtustus. The path is easy to follow and mostly flat, passing through the Willow Creek Canyon to where it meets the Deschutes River. The views are of the high volcanic cliffs and Willow Creek at the bottom of the canyon.
