The Sunriver Bike Path is a network of paved, multi-use trails that run throughout the sprawling resort area of Sunriver, a popular recreation destination just south of Bend in central Oregon. Visitors in the summer can avail themselves of the many miles of convenient, off-road pathways that provide a great way of getting around the area while also offering trail users the chance to breath in the fresh Oregon air and enjoy the beautiful, wooded scenery.
Playgrounds and outdoor athletic facilities are available at Fort Rock Park on the eastern side of the community, while to the west the trail travels along a section of the lovely, winding Deschutes River. For those looking to explore some of the incredible volcanic formations within the Newberry National Volcanic Monument, the bike path also offers a connection to the paved Sun-Lava Trail at the northern edge of the community, which offers the perfect chance to explore the natural surroundings around the resort. Offering access to almost the entirety of the destinations within the resort area, the Sunriver Bike Path provides a compelling reason for visitors to bring or rent bikes during their stay.
Parking is available at various locations throughout Sunriver; a small trailhead with parking is located near the beginning of the Sun-Lava Trail, just north of E Cascade Road on Forest Service Road 600. Parking and restrooms are available at Fort Rock Park, as well as the Sunriver Nature Center & Observatory.
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.
