Mountain Biking Deschutes River - Harrison Ranch

****   Add a review
#93 of 298 mountain bike trails in Oregon
#4148 in the world

This is an old railroad bed that is a double-track trail. Small rocks, sand, a few climbs. Pretty easy ride along the river. Old box cars up toward the old, Harrison Ranch. You can camp up there if you like. I've seen mountain sheep, deer and other minor critters up there. Bring a flat-tire kit or/and extra tube... lots of goatheads.

    Rails-to-Trails Conversion. Pretty flat for the most part, very scenic. Not quite singletrack.
