It begins in the stunning countryside that frames Mt. Bachelor: named for the sharp, if aloof 9,068-ft nobleman seemingly detached from the nearby Three Sisters, a tight band of 10,000-ft volcanic peaks. About 20-miles southwest of Bend, you'll ride beautiful singletrack through dense forest, arcing around no less than five dazzling high mountain lakes.
Spanning 1.8-million acres, the Deschutes National Forest opens onto a trail system heavy on variety but lightly traveled. This backcountry routes roll up to lofty waterfalls and edge a 7,000-year-old volcanic peak. The newly designated Newberry Volcanic National Monument—within the Deschutes NF—promises not only epic singletrack riding within its 55,500-acres, but spectacular lakes that give way to flows of sparkling obsidian, suspended in long-ago lava flows. The highest point within the Monument is the summit Paulina Peak (7,985 ft.), showcasing views of the Oregon Cascades and across the High Desert.
By virtue of its diverse trails and routes, Mt Bachelor lends itself to a wide-range of skill levels. The singletrack around the crater is some of the best you will ever ride! Singletrack experience is recommended but not required.
