Planning a Bend mtb trip for 2 days need to know what trails to ride in that short time looking for 2 all day rides that are fast, flowy with some tech that can be shuttled. Also need to know where to stay at a campground
Mrazek is rad and it’s an all-dayer. Tyler’s Traverse is a must-do for me. We also lapped Funner like 4 times cuz it’s short and awesome! COD is pretty cool after your last lap on Funner. Could spend a day on Mt. Bachelor, too. Haven’t done Phils Area trails but everyone loves ’em. Can’t remember the name, but we camped at an RV resort about 20 minutes NW of Bend. Really cool place just can’t find the link right now… Cog Wild will be your shuttle (http://www.cogwild.com)
Can’t go wrong if you did Mrazek one day then Funner-COD and Tyler’s on the second day. If you still have time and energy, go mess around Phils
2)Start at Swampy Lakes TH and ride to Swede Ridge and tie into Whoops. Then choose your route back to the Phils area TH…. Lower whoops, Phils….C.O.D. (A map of the Bend area trails will help you choose).
3)Start at the south end of the Deschutes River trail and ride back toward town. Near the Aspen Recreation site take the gravel road, to a paved road that will intersect with the end of Storm King trail. From there you have access to the Phil’s trail system.
I like riding the trails on the west end of the area the best…..more remote and beautiful.
