A grand tour of the High Desert with easy, rolling trails.

Katy Ryan

Overview

Seasonal closures for raptor protection along the Deschutes Canyon Rim February 1 August 31.
Maston is known for its great winter riding. However, in the summer it can get hot, hot, hot. Gorgeous high desert views of juniper, cascades and raptors.

It consists of rolling and relatively flat terrain that is fun and flowing. The eastern edge has some fantastic Deschutes Canyon views, but pay attention to the trail so you don't fall!

Need to Know

Horses are popular here, along with bikes....each having their own trails. No matter, give the right of way to the horses if you do see them.

Description

There are a few rocky sections, but easy to walk around if you prefer. A section of the eastern edge of the loop (Rim Trail), skirts the Deschutes River Canyon. The trail is rocky in spots, and the exposure is big. It's a fun and beautiful section, so walk it if you need to, but watch for other riders, and tread lightly on the fragile ecosystem surrounding you.

There are no trail markers yet, though the trail is well established, and the new parking area on the South side is impossible to miss, it's huge. There's a restroom and several picnic tables at the trailhead.

The Juniper Trailhead to the north is an optional starting/ending point for this ride.
