Join the Deschutes Land Trust and Gary ‘Gus’ Gustafson for a 6-8 mile intermediate* mountain bike ride at the Metolius Preserve. Visit all three sections of the forested 1,240-acre Metolius Preserve following singletrack trails and dirt roads. Along the way, we’ll stop in various locations and talk about the many hidden qualities of the Preserve, including habitat types, animal and bird species present, fish passage, vegetation, and other interesting tidbits.

*Intermediate-level riders are riders in good physical condition and comfortable riding in areas of loose dirt and sandy soil. Riders should be able to ride over obstacles in the trail such as rocks and vegetation. This ride does not take place on smooth, well-packed trails. It is a mix of logging roads and trails with some climbs and descents.

Ride Rating: This is an intermediate 6-8 mile mountain bike ride on dirt roads and trails.

What to Bring: Your bike, helmet, a bike repair kit, and plenty of water and snacks/lunch. Dress for the weather.

Free, registration required. Please register online at
