Horse Ridge Professional Reviews and Guides

"Not to be confused with Horse Butte (see previous trail), Horse Ridge lies farther out of Bend, approximately 15 miles east of town.

A great destination in the winter months, the area rarely sees snow and has wide-open western views of the Cascades. During summer months, sections of the trail network can get very sandy, while spring brings desert wild?owers along the singletrack near the crest of the ridge."

"Horse Ridge is located near the Badlands Wilderness, just across US Highway 20. While this prominent ridge is primarily a winter mountain-biking destination, there’s no reason why you can’t hike it."

"22 miles east of Bend in the high desert. Incredible high desert scenery and views of the distant Cascades; fun doubletrack jeep roads through sagebrush and juniper."
