June 14, 2023 @ 3:30 pm - 6:00 pmFree
Let’s welcome the warmer weather with our new Bike & Hike event!
We’re heading to Lava Island Falls trailhead. You can choose to Hike or ride your Mountain bike.
BIKES: The route will be moderate, fairly flat, with a couple climbs and maybe a rock garden or two that you are welcome to walk your bikes through. From the Lava Islands Trailhead, we’ll head north to the Slough Picnic area and then back a slightly different way to make the round trip about 9.5 miles. The round trip will take about 1 – 1.5 hrs to allow for photo opps with the beautiful Deschutes River as a backdrop. At various points along the way, we will stop to regroup. No one will be left behind.
REQUIREMENTS: You will need a mountain or gravel bike in good working order. (No road bikes or cruisers), a helmet, closed-toe shoes and plenty of water are also required. Most of the local bike shops in town rent mountain bikes, so check it out. Participants should have a full understanding of how the bike gears work and how to use both front and rear brakes. NOTE: Our local trails do not allow e-Bikes, so leave those at home.
HIKES: The route will be moderate, fairly flat, with a couple climbs that you can easily walk through. From the Lava Islands Trailhead you can decide together which way to go. Plan to walk out about 45 minutes then turn around to meet back at the trailhead to catchup with the Bike girls. Wear sturdy shoes, bring plenty of water and snacks if you need them.
Afterwards, we will enjoy a cold beer together at Pacific Pizza & Brew! First pint is on us..
Directions—Head north on Century from Bend, go past the Widgi Creek Golf Course, then left on Conklin (across from the Ranger Visitor Center). Take the first left marked “Lava Island Falls Trailhead”. (becomes a dirt road). Go past Boat launch, straight to the Day Use area to park.
