The arduous climb up Burma Road is as steep as it looks, thankfully, it is not long and takes you to a lovely overlook. You may wish to bring a pair of binoculars. This ride is suited to strong cyclists with good technical skills. The route involves a 5.9 mile loop and a 5.2 mile out-and-back. Gravel and dirt roads comprise 6.2 miles of the ride, while 4.9 miles are on single-track. The descent down Burma Road is wild; staying in control is a major concern. Smith Rock State Park is located approximately 9 miles north of Redmond (about 25 miles north of Bend).

If you are looking for a very good workout in a great setting this is the ride for you. It is mostly two big hills covered is soft sand or gravel exposed to the sun 90% of the time. Don't look for fast single track or rolling hills. Bring plenty of water!
