The Deschutes National Forest is a United States National Forest located in parts of Deschutes, Klamath, Lake, and Jefferson counties in central Oregon. It comprises 1.8 million acres along the east side of the Cascade Range.
Lovely winding trail along the Deschutes. Admittedly I have a bit of a bias because this was my first MTB trail ever, but it remains one of my favorite for flowy XC. You can connect this with the rest of the Deschutes trail to get all the way from Sunriver to Bend.

Great trail for mountain biking, everyone was super friendly.
I wish more places embraced mountain bikers like Bend does. They have a 3 to 1 ratio of mountain bikers to hikers showing up at all of their trail maintenance and trail building days. We stayed in town and the food and breweries were fantastic. This is a town that knows how to attract nature loving tourists who enjoy all sorts of outdoor activities. We will definitely be back!
Very neat location. The cave entry is very ominous and spooky. You instantly descend a set of stairs into the cave. Complete darkness from the point in, so bring light! To reach the cave end you must crawl twice along the way (towards the end) but it's not too tight. The sign notifies of bats, but we weren't lucky enough to see any.
