I am hoping to get to Oregon around the last week of Sept or the first couple weeks of Oct. What can I expect for weather and trail conditions during that time frame? Any snow at elevation that early? Any info would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Dave

could be anything from Indian summer crispy clear days to snow. should be okay though unless you ride the higher stuff where snow is a definite possibility. trails should be delicious. a good time of year to do the ride around Bachelor via Kwoll. also North Fork - Metolius/Windigo - Flagline loop. pretty much all of it.

That'll a good time of year for riding, most likely. The dust packs down a bit, and Flagline Trail is open. Didn't snow start coming in mid October last year?

yeah, the snow and rain started around Columbus Day last year while I was riding Swede Ridge, only made it about half way and turned around because of hypothermia. Tried to light a fire in the lower (now gone) shelter with no luck, warmed up in the laundromat and then to Deschutes Brewery....

Like slimTreeshadow said it could be any type of weather, I have lived here since 1975 and its never the same year to year. Sometimes the first couple of weeks in Oct can get into the high 90's and try to do the indian summer thing or it can be in the low 30's or 20's and start snowing, you just can't tell. Around here you just cant wimp out because its cold or hot, you just gotta go out and enjoy the trails anyway you can.
