    coming down june 18th

    I know you guys have probably been asked this a bunch (even though I looked on past posts and coulnt find this specific question)

    please indulge me

    we are coming down june 19th for 4 days. We are interested in hooking up with the best rides. MRT is a given. If you were going to bend for 4 days what would the top rides you would want to make sure we didnt miss.

    We are all accomplished riders who dont do extreme stuff ( nothing bigger than 4' drops for me) We are also not shy about climbing.

    Thanks in advance for your help
    I just don't understand my wife....she thinks its nuts to ride when the temperature is in the 20's....go figure

    Skip the crowded tourist traps (MRT and the dusty place). Instead, hit Oakridge for the entirety of your trip. Ride Middle Fork, Alpine Trail, Larison Creek, Moon Point, Salmon Creek, Tire Mountain & Bunchgrass.

    That's what I say.

    If you *have* to ride MRT then ride it, but the best goods is in Oakridge and the surrounding area. Tire Mt., Middle Fork (better river trail than MRT in my opinion), Winberry, Lawler, and the like.

    Brock...
    Are the wheels roundish? Ride it.

    Disciples Of Dirt, come ride with us.

    The NUT is pretty special too. North Umpqua Trail.

    Over the course of four days you could ride quite a bit around Bend. Basically, my rule of thumb is "the higher, the better" (no pot allusions; I'm not in high school any more). It depends on how much snow has melted off, and this year we have a LOT of it.

    I'm not as into the Oakridge and NUT stuff as most others are. The flora and fauna make me itchy.

    I think it's dumb when forum commandos say "do a search." I'd rather just do it for you:

    Top 5 trails around Oakridge/Bend?

    Bend trail recs?

    Exactly.
    That's why I say we need a "Visitors Read First" sticky thread. I'm sure somebody out there has enough idle time to put it together

    Check out Arizona's and Utah's:
    VISITORS READ HERE FIRST: Local riding advice
    Moab Trip Planner

    OK, so Utah's is a Moab trip Planner, but you get the idea. Enough people inquire and thanks to this Board and some national attention, people want to come visit. I said it before too that people also want to relocate here, so we may need two threads, one for the tourists and one to explain that if you want to move here bring a job and be prepared for rain, unless you move to Prineville, etc., etc.

    Back on topic: What Sparty said.

    I say, make em work a bit for it. I'd rather show someone a trail than tell them about it.
