Description

This trail connects the Lava Lands Visitor Center to the Deschutes River Trail. It's a beautiful, flowing trail that abuts an old lava flow that's easy to follow. The trail has just a few rocky bits, but it's definitely an easy trail otherwise. It's a nice and shaded trail, with views every once in awhile of the lava flow and the Cascade Range. It ends at the Deschutes River, though you can hop on the Deschutes River Trail toward Bend or Sun River.

Great trail to get the feel of riding in high desert dirt. Lots of shade. Started 9:30 am on a Friday. Only a half dozen other riders 8.4mi — 1h 20m

Great for kids, the ride back on sun lava paved trail was harder though!

It was very hard to find the actual trailhead but we eventually found the trail, but it eventually turned fun. I would recommend this to anyone. Easy
