Central Oregon Canal Trail Description

Central Oregon Canal Trail offers 3 miles of trail on the southern end of Bend. A good place to begin your journey is Woodriver Park on the southern banks of the Deschutes River. A connection to the Deschutes River Trail can be made here to follow the waterway for 12 miles.

Head south and you’ll parallel the west side Brookswood Boulevard, soon reaching Blakely Park, where you’ll find restrooms and a popular playground. From the park, you can stay on the west side of the boulevard to head southwest, or you can cross the roadway and follow another branch of the trail to reach the canal for which the trail was named.

The trail hugs the canal’s north bank as it travels east through residential and commercial areas to end at American Lane.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available in Woodriver Park (61690 Woodriver Drive) along the Deschutes River, and at Blakely Park (1155 SW Brookswood Blvd.).

Access issues

The Central Oregon Canal Trail is a great start, but it needs some work. I am new to the area and was excited to get out and explore the local trails. As I was biking along, I came to sections of trails with big signs saying "No Trespassing." A canal trail continues farther but the signs say that you can be fined or put in jail because Nottingham Square owns that section of trail. Nottingham Square seems pretentious, and I hope that Bend Parks and Rec can work this out to make a contiguous trail for people.
