Take it nice and easy on the Dry Canyon Trail. It’s an effortless 8-mile paved path in the heart of Redmond. We cruise around rock cliffs and under an archway bridge and stop along the way to enjoy one of the city’s parks.
The road riders of Redmond find bliss on the Sisters to Smith Rock Scenic Bikeway. Start in the small town of Sisters for some Old West flavor. Pedal through a few ups and many gentle downs on a 37-mile journey through high desert heaven. The changing landscape tells you our story, from rolling farmlands to gushing rivers and snow-capped peaks. The bikeway ends at the high golden walls of Smith Rock State Park.
Smith Rock has several mountain bike trails as well. We’ve been enjoying the 7.7-mile Summit Loop trail. It features a big climb since it hits all the park highlights, from river’s edge to canyon vistas and the iconic Monkey Face rock formation.
For more trail options, we recommend Cline Butte and Maston Trail systems. They link up on 4,000 acres of mystic desert terrain, gnarly juniper and riverside rest stops. There are 50 miles of trails with a variety of ratings so, whatever your skill level is, check it out.
