Mountain Bike in Bend, Oregon with Cog Wild

Located at LOGE Camp Hotel, Cog Wild is at the boundary of the Deschutes National Forest, which means the trails start and end at our location. The mountain bike season in Bend runs approximately from May through October, depending on the weather and snow conditions. Cog Wild offers daily guided mountain bike rides and skills instruction for all levels of riders. For those who are familiar with the region or who are competent explorers, Cog Wild provides multiple daily shuttles to the main trailheads along the Cascade Lakes Highway.
