    Bend Recovery Rides

    Hi, I'm new here and I live in Bend. I'm recovering from 8 plus years of recovery and no MTB. I don't know all the trails here and the ones I do hear about are for shredding... . Did a bit of road and the trainer so I'm somewhat in shape. I want to do some easy rides to help me ease back into it. Want to gain confidence and refine skills. My husband does'nt like Phil's so we don't go there. He plays more Golf now but I want to get him back into riding so something pretty and close to the breweries would be nice .

    Phil's (while leaving your husband behind.... you yourself may like it); Tumalo Creek/Swede Ridge; Deschutes River Trail; Peterson Ridge in Sisters..... these are all great and scenic and fairly easy and ready for your exploration.

    I'll echo the DRT (esp the section between Lava and Benham Falls) and Peterson Ridge Trail (esp the east/left side trails).
    Whining is not a strategy.

    Park at Three Creeks Brewery in Sisters, ride the singletrack to Peterson Ridge and back, celebrate.

    Shevlin Park is always nice, but can be crowded.

    Horse Butte is kinda nice. Might be a little loose right now, but it would make a nice morning ride.

    There is a ST trail from the Brewery over to Peterson Ridge? I did not know that.

    That's basically where sisters stampede starts, but it's not really a trail I don't think. Dirt roads for 2-3 blocks.

    I camp at that CG there sometimes and it's basically MTBing, movies, restaurants and coffee shops out your door.

    Hmmmm, memory tells me I rode single track from that Five Pines complex out to P-Ridge but I suppose could be wrong.


    Sisters Trails Alliance - Hiking/Biking Trails

    "Five Pine – Peterson Ridge Trail Connector [To Top]

    Length: Approx 0.6 miles Surface: Dirt single track and FS road.

    Description: The Five Pine Campus and Sisters Athletic Club are located on Hwy 20 at the east edge of Sisters. The connector trail consists of single track dirt and old FS road and connects into the Peterson Ridge Trail at approximately 0.3 miles from the trail head.

    Access: The trail head is located at a trail kiosk which is located south of the Sisters Athletic Club within the Five Pines Campus."

    There are more easy rides for me to do then I thought. I really love Sisters. It's sort of like being on Vacation at home.

    I've never been to Three Creeks Brewing. How is it?

    Thanks for the map Nat!

    Has anyone raced Sisters Stampede? Maybe next year for me.

    What is CG. Sounds like you have a lot of fun!

    Three Creeks is great for both beer & food.
