This is fun trail that goes through a volcanic area. Cross over technical lava sections and have fun climbing through loose, spongey, pumice sections that will have you swearing that someone attached an anchor to your bike. Leave the full suspension bike at home. Great scenery with the three sisters, bachelor and other towering volcanic peaks in the area. Start the trail at a free campsite. Nice.

Fun ride with lot's of incredible volcanic rock formations. Incredible views of the Sisters & Broken Top from Lava Lake. If you have the stamina, you can do a 40 mile loop around the base of Mount Bachelor that includes sections of this trail.
