Old Mill Loop Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Though this book focuses mainly on running in the wilderness, sometimes it’s nice to have a trail run right outside your front door. The Old Mill Loop on the Deschutes River Trail offer myriad distance options and is a great combination of quintessential Central Oregon trail running and the beauty of what makes Bend one of the premier places in the country to live.

There's no trailhead per se for this loop—you can start in many places—but one place I like to begin is at Riverbend Park, off SW Columbia Street and Shevlin Hixon Drive. There's plenty of parking, and this spot tends to be less crowded than some of the others. Plus, the Bend Park and Recreation District is housed in the building adjacent to the park, so I like to think of it as paying homage to all the hard work its employees do to make Bend’s parks and trails wonderful."
