Skyliners Professional Reviews and Guides

"New stretches of single-track, old logging roads, and old trails come together to form this demanding loop. The loop passes three shelters that are popular in the winter with cross-country skiers. The mountain bike loop begins at a trailhead near the end of Skyliners Road. A new trail, Tumalo Creek Trail, connects this trailhead with the bottom of South Fork Trail. The park rangers suggest you use the South Fork Trail as an uphill route, which is very enjoyable.

It had its tough spots, but was pleasantly rideable - a gratifying challenge. South Fork Trail leads up to Swampy Lakes Shelter. Here you pick up Swede Ridge Trail, which crosses over to the lovely Swede Ridge Shelter. There are great views from Swede Ridge. From Swede Ridge Shelter you drop gently on a rough gravel road that tied into Tumalo Ridge Trail. The loop was completed with a switchbacking descent on this new trail. The trailhead is approximately 12 miles west of downtown Bend."
