Deschutes National Forest Mountain Bike Trails

Home of some amazing, easily accessible singletrack, the Deschutes National Forest is a popular mountainbike destination.

The major trail cluster is west of Bend, with some less famous but worthy rides in the surrounding ranger districts.

Sisters and LaPine are great mountain biking destinations, in addtion to a wide variety of lakeside camping opportunities.

On the dry side of the Cascade range, Deschutes offers prime Cascade foothills riding, with moderate terrain and weather.
