Peter Skene Ogden Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"This is one of those very satisfying rides that give you a lot for what you put in to it. The trail parallels scenic Paulina Creek. The stream cascades into inviting pools and forms beautiful waterfalls. You can muse on mountain peaks while enjoying refreshments at Paulina Lake Lodge. The dirt road descent is fast and exhilarating. The surface of the trail is soft with accumulations of pumice dust. There are a few steep pitches and some intricate pedaling through rocky terrain, but most everything is rideable. The trailhead is approximately 25 miles south of Bend."

"The Peter Skene Ogden Trail consists of singletrack, doubletrack, and paved roads. The 9-mile singletrack portion of the ride is uphill only and parallels the picturesque Paulina Creek, which is full of swirling pools and tumbling falls. The trail takes you to Paulina Lake, which is a good place to take a refreshing plunge. You’ll have an exhilarating descent on paved Paulina Lake Road back to your starting point. Trail surface: Paved road, gravel road, doubletrack, singletrack."
