Overview

Closed when flooded by melt off.
This is a great trail system featuring fast, swoopy with some small climbs. This is a great beginner to intermediate level trail with a touch of technicality on the outer-most points. During summer months, the trail gets dry and dusty, and numbers of beginner rides create ruts in turns.

Description

This is a great trail system with some great views.

Access:
The main trailhead is located approximately -mile south of downtown Sisters just across the Whychus Creek bridge. Many park at the Village Green Park where parking and restrooms are available. Additional access at the top of the Peterson Ride, off Three Creeks Rd. Some like to California shuttle and ride back to town from here.

Additional Notes: The lower portion (near town) is heavily used by walkers, joggers, hikers, and dog walkers. Bicyclists are to use caution while riding this trail for the safety of all.

History & Background

The Peterson Ridge Trail was constructed in 1989 as a mountain bike trail and consists of a combination of singletrack trail and old forest service road.

Trail is fast and flowy. Take the PRT EAST to start. Stop for the views! It was a great recovery ride! Stop in town for a burger and brew! 18mi — 3h 00m
