Trails in this area are good for those who want a less crowded alternative to the busy trails west of Bend. Please be considerate of other users since these trails are designated primarily for horse riders. via USDA

    Actually consists of the south end of Swamp Wells trail, Coyote Loop trail and Arnold Ice Cave trail which are all listed on this site. Additionally, with all the dirt roads in the area there is an endless combination of miles one can tie together (to Newbery Crater if desired). Swamp Wells is forested and there is some sweet flowing DH to be had. Coyote Loop & Arnold Ice Cave are more XC rides through a 20 year old burn area. All trails are best in cooler months.
