Mountain Biking Oregon

Classic central Oregon ride, nearly all single track. This system of trails abutting Sisters, Oregon is very actively maintained with many new sub-trails added recently. The trail is organized in a loop - with a west trail and east trail. There are maybe ten paths that join east to west, which basically allows you to create a loop of any length you choose.
The lower sections are suitable for beginners, but the middle and upper have enough rocks to provide a challenge for intermediate riders (at least I had a challenge.
The single track is a lot of fun, and if you travel clockwise you'll have a lot of fun coming back down with many banked turns. In summer the single tracks can be dry and dusty which means that you need to stay in the hard packed center lest your tires stop in the powder. This is a great trail for working on your steering skills.
And - nice views, especially along the ridge itself.
Did I mention that you should watch for rocks in the mid section? My experience says that knees don't mix well with lava rocks,
Truly a gem of a trail for sheer fun and exhileration. Wonderful fun swoops, bunny humps and trail carving, plus a fantastic view at the top. Nothing too technical, just pure pleasure. Rates 10 yahoos for fun.
