Mountain Biking North Fork

****   Add a review
#90 of 302 mountain bike trails in Oregon
#4,118 in the world

One of the most scenic rides around the Bend area.
*Special note; this is a one way, up hill ride only, so is to be used as access to other trails farther up the mountain. From the parking lot you have fantastic view of the main Tumalo Falls, there are 6 more in the next 3 miles. Trail is a fairly steep grind for the first half mile but mellows out after that and become a fantastic singletrack ride up the canyon all the way to Happy Valley. There are several places to stop and enjoy the view on the way up.
Once at Happy Valley this trail ends at the Metolius/Windigo trail making several route options from this point. One popular route and the shortest loop option is to head east on the M/W trail to the Farewell trail that heads back down to the Tumalo Falls trailhead.

    North Fork is one of the most scenic trails in Bend. It's a grunt of a climb, but worth it for the views as it climbs past Tumalo falls and several other smaller waterfalls.

    Excellent climb with incredible views of waterfalls, mountains, and a cascading river along the way. This is a great way to access the Metolius Trail, Farewell, and Mrazek.
