MTB Ride – Advanced Beginner – Suttle Tie & Metolius Preserve

October 11 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

It should be peak season for fall colors and the Metolius preserve and Suttle Lake area has a good variety including the Western Larch.

We will ride the Suttle Tie trail to Suttle Lake, then head down the Lake Creek Trail to the Metolius preserve. We will ride through the preserve and then return to our starting point via forest service roads. This does require crossing HWY 20.

This is an advanced beginner ride. The trails are easy/low technical. We will ride at a little faster pace but will stop for photos.

Vaccinated only ride.
