Deschutes River Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"You’ll ﬁnd this section of the Deschutes River Trail near the three iconic smokestacks that mark the Old Mill District in the heart of Bend. Like most of the Paciﬁc Northwest, Bend’s early livelihood was a thriving timber industry."
--Brittany Manwill , Day Hiking Bend and Central Oregon (The Mountaineers Books).
"Along the Deschutes River between Bend and Sunriver. Beautiful scenery, including three class 5 falls on the Deschutes river and lava flows; rolling singletrack."
--Scott Rapp, Mountain Biking Bend (Falcon Guides).
Good trail, but a fair number of hikers. If you do the trail from Sunriver, it is easy to get a little lost once you get to the Meadows picnic area. Still not sure exactly where to go from there to Bend. Fast single track was fun. Never seen so many woop-dee-doos!
Great singletrack and rolling terrain. No substantial climbing to speak of.
