Peterson Ridge/Sisters Mountain Bike Trail
Length: Approx 25 miles of trails Surface: Mostly dirt single track with some FS road.
Description: The Peterson Ridge Trail was constructed in 1989 as a mountain bike trail and consists of a combination of single track trail and old forest service road. The bike trail system has undergone a major expansion in 2008 with nearly 20 miles of new trails. The trail is generally easy with moderate difficulty sections in some locations and gains elevation as it heads south. The Eagle Rock Loop portion of the trail is approximately 5.5 miles. The trail generally consists of west and east legs, with connector trails in between. Permanent signs on 6x6 posts have been placed at all major intersections, and correlate with the trail map. A single track trail at the south end connects to Three Creek Road.
Access: The main trail head is located approximately ½-mile south of downtown Sisters just south of the Whychus Creek bridge (parking is limited at this location). Many users park at Village Green Park where ample parking and restrooms are available. Additional access is also provided at the south end of the trail just past mile marker 5 on Three Creek Road as well as where the trail crosses the Mainline and Peterson Ridge Roads (parking limited at these locations).
