Located in Central Oregon’s beautiful Ochoco National Forest, 28 miles east of Prineville, Oregon

Large, grassy meadow dotted with old growth ponderosa pine and aspens. Horse water and portapotties provided. Please bring your own people water.

Bag and remove all horse poop! (Bag removal service for a small fee - $1/bag.)


10, 20 & 30 miles loops and maybe another one or two new ones!
The course is mostly single-track dirt trails with the remainder on old two-track logging roads winding through pine covered mountains, wild horse habitat and green meadows. Generally good footing, and yes, there are some rocky spots. Water provided or from natural sources every 5-6 miles. Terrain is moderate with some long, gradual climbs. Keep an eye out
for the gold that bandits left hidden in the hills in 1863 along with their six horses. The remains of the horses were found ... but the gold never was...

Weather can vary from cool & dry to hot and humid during the day. Nights are cool at the 5000 ft altitude.
