Metolius/Windigo Trail - Primary use is equestrian but open to hiking & biking

Description:  The Metolius Windigo (Met-Win) trail is an Oregon State Scenic Trail primarily used by equestrians.  The Met-Win trail is over 100 miles long and begins in the north at the Mt. Jefferson Wilderness and runs all the way south to Windigo Pass near Crescent Lake. To minimize confusion it is broken into distinct segments each with its own character. The Metolius-Windigo gets a lot of use by horses and can be quite sandy — especially in late summer.
