We’re not saying play hooky from work, we’re just saying that the trails in Bend are calling…
If you’re like us, you’ll agree that there’s nothing better than a great trail run on a sunny day. Heat and dust aside, the view – wherever you choose to run – cannot be beaten.
From a jog through the trees at Shevlin Park, to a long run along the First Street Rapids and Deschutes River Trail, or even a brisk stroll along the river through the Old Mill District and along the Old Haul Trail Road, you don’t have to venture far from home to find a trail near you. In fact, there are 65+ miles of trail in the Bend Park & Recreation district alone!
Wherever, and however, you hit those trails, make sure you follow proper trail etiquette, as outlined in the video below by COTA (Central Oregon Trail Alliance):
