Nice hike or bike ride around the rim of this Bend area park. Shevlin Park is a haven located less than three miles from Bend and a perfect location for hiking, jogging, fishing, cross country skiing, and picnicking. There is an extensive trail and pathway system providing for both summer and winter uses. The trail around the canyon rim is perfect for mountain biking, or a nature walk. You will travel through aspen and ponderosa pine. Views of Tumalo Creek in the canyon below.

This trail is beautiful, with a lot of shade, big trees, and cool views of Tumalo Creek. However, I would not rate this as "easy" for a beginner rider. I am not a beginner, but my girlfriend is and this was her third MTB, ever. There were quite a few steep/punchy climbs than expected, as well as a few technical rock sections and switchbacks that I also did not expect. This is probably an easy trail for hiking, but as for riding, I would put it more towards a "moderate" trail. It is suitable for beginners, as long as they don't mind getting off and walking a few sections :-)

Very easy and well maintained trail. Some great scenery and bridges across the creek. I’d recommend doing the Tumalo Creek trail as well as it goes along the creek and has some beautiful spots and places for the kids to skip rocks or climb across fallen logs.

Good spot close to town for an exercise walk (run or bike). Several loop options through woods, ridge line and beside creek. The loop options are about 5 miles each with no elevation gain.

Some runoff on trail but footing was great. Perfect temp for hike this morning.

Great easy trail that lasts a couple hours. Mild inclines and declines and some offers some diversity (hot and sandy then woodsy and watery etc). Easy to follow trail markings

Took the Tumalo Creek trail in and hiked the Shevlin loop out. Great views down to the creek. Easy way to spend a couple of hours.

Great set of trails close to Bend to run on. Also, good for hiking. There are multiple intersecting trails that make it easy to create your own run/hike. It’s worth checking out especially if you don’t have time to go to some of the popular trails further out of town.

Nice trail, but way too many mountain bikers that don't yield to pedestrians.

Excellent loop, hard to beat for something so close to the city center. Trail was a bit icy so be sure to bring some spikes during winter months. A few trails branch off of the east side of the loop, looking forward to exploring those on future visits.

Best Kept Secret in the Bend City Park System - especially for bird watching and old growth forest & must if you visit in Central Oregon

Super cool loop. Can tell why this would be a great place to walk your dog if you're a local. But if you're looking for views and a good hike go elsewhere, lots of better views in this area!

We did the loop, perfect for a beautiful October afternoon. the quiet forest and occasional glimpses of Tumalo Creek made for a lovey afternoon saunter.

It is a great place to walk with the water along the trails,and also to enjoy that cover bridge . Please go before bridge is taken down.

I stayed on the marked trail for Shevlin loop. Occasional peak a boo views of the river below. Not much shade. Next time I will drop down and walk along Tumalo river. More shade and cooler along the river.

Pretty dull trail. Not to say it isn’t beautiful, it’s just that there are way better hikes with less people in the area. This would be a great hike for a young family with a running baby stroller. Lots of people and smooth paths

Great trail run! The ground was frozen and had bike ruts so some parts I had to take slow so I wouldn’t roll an ankle but other than that it was a great run without too many hills!

This gorgeous little trail was the perfect length. It's a little hard to find when you get to the park, but once you're on it, there are clear signs at all the trail intersections.

Lots of charred areas. Nice views when you get up higher. I took the Tumalo creek trail at the halfway (back)

Nice water access for dogs. Easy, flat run and can connect to other trails in the area
