Meet at Tyler’s Trailhead. We will follow the gravel road to Slough Camp and then take the Deschutes River Trail to Benham Falls. Then we will cross the bridge and ride the single track trail (still DRT) to Sunriver. After riding the paved paths to the Cardinal bridge, we will ride up the Roundabout/Afternoon Delight Trail to rd. 41 and then descend the new Afternoon Delight trail back to our cars.

Most of the ride is easy single track. There are some rocks on the DRT trail from Sunriver to Benham East day use area
