Join the Deschutes Land Trust and Nancy Chaffee for a 6 to 8 mile beginning/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 its diverse plant and wildlife communities, new trail system, and other interesting tidbits.
Ride Rating: This is a beginner/intermediate, 6-8 mile mountain bike ride on dirt roads and trails. You should be comfortable riding singletrack, but be ready for fun stops to smell the roses. Riders should be able to ride over loose gravel and small obstacles in the trail such as roots 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.
