Advanced Beginner MTB – Catch & Release To DRT

August 19 @ 2:00 am - 4:00 am

It looks like Friday is going to be a little cooler and, so far, we have been lucky to avoid any major smoke issues. The trails are dry and dusty so you will return dirty and might need to slow it down a bit through the sandy spots.

Be ready to roll at 9:00am. Please arrive 10-15 minutes earlier.

This is an advanced beginner mountain bike ride from the Welcome Center.

We’ll take Catch and Release from the Welcome Center, skipping the last rocky bit by taking a forest service road then on to Slough Camp. We’ll take a short break and enjoy the view before returning via the Deschutes River Trail and the alternate DRT bike trail.

The ride is not very technical. The route is around 12 miles with 700′ of climbing. We’ll stop to regroup at the intersections. We will plan to average 6-7 MPH to be finished in a little over 2 hours.
