Bend Shuttle Riding Areas

Green Gate / RD 4613

These stops must be requested from the driver. Begin at “Green Gate” to access beginner & family-friendly trails like Storm King, Ticket to Ride and Catch & Release. “Road 4613” is up the hill just a bit further with access to Funner & Steve Larsen Trail.

Average ride back to Cog Wild is 4 – 10 miles.

Wanoga Sno Park

Our first regular stop accesses the Wanoga Pump Track, Funner, Tiddlywinks, Tyler’s Traverse and much more. While the terrain is generally downhill and most obstacles have go-arounds, these blue and black trails can be challenging for new or younger riders.

Average ride back to Cog Wild is 12 – 18 miles.

Swampy Lakes Sno Park

Mid-elevation Swampy Lakes Trailhead is a great place for longer rides to access many trails that connect to the Swampy Lakes Loop like Vista Butte, Swede Ridge, South Fork and Upper & Lower Whoops.

Average ride back to Cog Wild is 15 – 20 miles.

Dutchman Flat / Mt. Bachelor

Once the higher elevation trails are free from snow (late June to mid-July), our final stop is Dutchman Flat, across the highway from Mt. Bachelor Ski Area / Bike Park. Use Flagline Access to ride backcountry trails like Metolius-Windigo, and Middle Flagline, which opens on August 15 to protect elk calving grounds.

Average ride back to Cog Wild is 25 – 40 miles.
