Like previously mentioned, we started at the Sunriver trailhead. This put the steepest grade the last 2 miles up to Lava Butte. We also then rode the Benham Falls trail and some paths in Sunriver for a total of almost 20 miles. Despite other reviewers remarks and a sign at Sunriver trailhead we past several ebikers….all apparently originating from Sunriver (as we saw some of the later in Sunriver)
It would be 5 stars for a semi urban trail that continues out along the rather busy Century Drive except for the initial road crossings. It is all smooth pavement suitable for many uses including skating. A nice 10 mile out and back.
This is a smooth paved trail mostly flat great for skating or roller skiing. Lots of fun and usually not too crowded. The canyon walls are interesting but nothing incredible.
These are my favorite trails. The first place my parents ever let us explore without them because of the amount of separate-from-vehicle trails. Trails run through tunnels under roads so it’s very easy to safely get wherever you want to go in Sunriver.
We were visiting the area and decided to check out the Dry Canyon Trail.
Rather than drive to a trailhead, we cycled the approximate 2.5 miles from the Expo RV Park where we were staying to the Quartz Avenue trailhead. The campground host recommended getting to the trailhead by taking Yew Avenue to Canal Road to Quartz Avenue. Canal Road has a bike lane. It was a good choice.
Although a short ride, we were impressed with the trail. It was a wide paved trail and in excellent condition. This flat trail and all its parks, sport fields,and disc golf along the way is an excellent example of what a city can do to provide outdoor facilities to its residents (and visitors)…not to mention the geological features along the trail. I would highly recommend this trail for those looking for a quick ride.
Very nice pathway running through the canyon in Redmond. It is wide enough for passing bikes, joggers, walkers and fog walkers - all share the trail. Often, you will see joggers and MTB bikes alongside the paved path using trails through the open areas or beneath the canyon walls. Early mornings are best as it does start to get crowded with all the various activities the trail area provides (pickle ball, softball, dog parks, basketball courts, etc). Overall, a well laid out and maintained city park system.
Not sure if evokes are allowed. Some parts say no bikes. Rough gravel at North end.
Nice wide path! Passes through several parks. On the North end I extended my ride on a very lightly traveled road. South end has a couple of neighborhood street crossings.
Many parts of paved trail is bumpy with tree roots.
Beautiful to walk, bike or jog! Read the other reviews. This trail system is well marked with informative totems just about every half mile. Port a potty every mile and drinking fountains often enough. Morning shade is great in late June. Several parks South of the arches and there is even a disc golf course. Enjoy!
This is a beautiful trail with access to the Lava Lands Visitor Center at the east end and Benham Falls at the west end. Also connects to the pathways in the Sunriver Community. Since this trail is located on U.S. Forest Service lands, e-bikes are prohibited by default. The local manager of this USFS unit has authority to allow e-bikes, but currently has not done so, to the best of my knowledge.
I live in this community and regularly ride & walk its 33+ miles of paved pathways. Five years ago, my family bought e-bikes. Two years ago, the HOA Board changed the pathway rules to ban any e-bike equipped with a throttle (whether you use the throttle or not), regardless of power or max speed. I’ve been engaging with the Board ever since then to try to educate and advocate for lifting that ban and implement rules based on power & speed. No luck so far. Have consulted with legal counsel, but since the entire community is privately owned (including the roads & pathways), the Board can impose any restrictions it chooses. So, if you want to ride an e-bike on Sunriver’s pathways, it cannot have a throttle.
