If you want a flowing trail with no technical sections and great views, here you go. It is easy (I rode it sans helmet because I left mine....somewhere) but lasted for 2+ hours. It is singletrack the whole time and well marked. Central Oregon is apparently experiencing unusual weather that is a bummer for snow but conducive for biking.

Customer Service

I went west-east because that is what the map suggested, but I would look at where the sun is/will be. If you are facing the sun, just have SUNglasses with you, duh.

I cannot give recommendations, but I can advise not to ride any desert terrain when the conditions are wet! This is important for trail stability. Ask at any local bike shop!

Great ride! Lots of fun with some awesome views. It was just a little over 18 miles and the trail was well marked. Not a ton of climbing but a few short challenges along the way. Mostly smooth single track but also some fun rocky sections.

Customer Service

I took the PRT West from the parking area until it linked up to the PRT East up on the ridge.

This trail system is undergoing a huge upgrade (08/09), adding 20+ miles to the original 10 for 30+ total. Old road/doubletrack sections are being moved to single, and a new leg plus 10 connectors is making a great stacked loop system with many options and some fabulous views. 15 miles are done as of 11/08, five to go, signing will begin in the Spring...46 junctions. Close to town is "easy", beyond is "intermediate", and considerably more challenging aerobically and technically than the old trail. There are and will be more technical options, marked "expert". Used to be a 2 hour ride, can hardly see it all now in one day. For updates and a map go to sisterstrails.com.

Customer Service

Ten loops (stacked) and innumerable variants possible.

The trail is surface is harder (less sandy) in late spring or after a rain making for a more enjoyable ride. Feels relatively fast both up and down. I ride this trail whenever my wife and I are in Sisters and I am still not sick of it. It is a fun refreshing ride that only takes about an hour or so depending on how long you spend at the top. Definitely not technical but a good ride with beautiful views of the Sisters, Jefferson, Washington, Three Finger Jack, Hood, and even Adams on a clear day.

This is a decent trail considering the terrain. We rode it recently (late July) as a nice easy connect from the bottom terminus of the more advanced Metolius-Windego trail (north section) to Sisters. If you get bored just ride faster.

Customer Service

uh.....out and back? Not really worth driving long distance to get to but if you happen to be in Sisters and want a quick easy ride, go 4 it. The best thing is it's closed to livestock.

This is a nice, fast trail. Awesome ride if you don't drive out of town or if you want something low-key(technically speaking) to crank out a fast ride. Nice view of the mountains from the fireroads.

Did this trail in early May just after a rain shower and the trail was in excellent condition. Could imagine it gets pretty sandy in drier weather. The trail starts at 3200' and a very easy climb up to some great views around 3800'at Peterson Ridge. The way down is a blast! Tight banked corners and plenty of jumps. All this right in town.

Customer Service

From trailhead on Tyee Drive follow Carsonite bike signs to the top around the loop and back down.

trail is great for beginners but has jumps to make things fun for experianced riders. Flat ride except for little climb 1/2 way through. Short 200 yards. Great views of three sisters mtns. Dry times trail is sandy and a little difficult to ride.

Customer Service

Start at the sisters park. Trailhead is 1/2 mile south down elm st.

A great low intermediate ride right at the edge of town. Perfect with my wife who enjoys speed and technical challenges. Very dry and dusty but fast and fun on the descent. Take the lollipop out around the big mound of pumice and climb it on foot for an awesome view and great lunch stop. Great camping along Squaw Creek or awesome B&Bs in Sisters.
