Want trails? We’ve got ‘em.

If you’re visiting town, you’ll see why we locals are proud to call it home. The picturesque views we get to see every day are almost unreal. From the mountains, to the rivers, to the forests, to the stunning waterfalls, each trail you explore offers its own charm, beauty, and ‘personality’. And, it doesn’t matter how many times you re-visit the same trail, it never ever gets old.


Hike, bike, run, or horseback ride, we’ve got you covered with 65+ miles of managed trail in town (BPRD) and hundreds more throughout Central Oregon, there’s always a new adventure to be found. Whichever trail you choose to explore, please don’t forget your manners. We take trail etiquette pretty seriously around here, so know the rules before you head outside.

| Deschutes River Trail in Bend, Oregon |

Hit the trails: Around town

One of our personal favorites, and a favorite to many locals and visitors alike, is the Deschutes River Trail. You can hop on the trail at numerous starting points and go as far as you’d like – a mile or 10+ miles. And, no matter how far you go, the scenery along the way doesn’t disappoint.


The great thing about this river trail is that it hooks up to many other trail systems around town, so you can start at the Old Mill District shopping area (fuel up with caffeine at Strictly Organic) and ultimately end up in the middle of the woods. Or, do a quick 3-mile loop past Farewell Bend Park, along the river, and back to the Old Mill area/Riverbend Park.
