Fall Shuttles 2022

Fall is here with cool mornings and hero dirt from last weekend’s rain fall.

Starting 9/27, mid-week shuttles will run at 10:30AM, Noon and 1:30 PM. The 9AM shuttle will run on weekends and on days we have early guided rides.

Now is the time for adventure rides in the high country. Jump on the Newberry shuttle on September 30 or the Dutchman to Sisters Shuttle on October 7 or 14.

Meet at Cog Wild on the edge of town. Jump on the shuttle, which travels up the Cascade Lakes Highway to Wanoga, Swampy or Dutchman Trailheads.

Shuttle riders need to be self sufficient: bring a map and have a route in mind, have a tool kit and first aid kit. Carry enough food, water and clothing to support your time in the woods.

Bend Trails and Trail Forks are great sites for researching trails and ride options. Maps are available to purchase at Cog Wild and we are happy to look at the map with you and suggest routes.
Please stay off middle Flagline until August 15 to give the elk ample time to raise their babies.
