Lots of options around the beginning. Good for all people at all levels: green, blue, black. We went back down Lower Whoops and that was super fun. Make sure you pack enough water especially if it’s hot. Get a map at the local bike shop.

The trails at Phils are well marked, mostly flat and not very challenging, but they are worth riding for even the most basic mountain bikers. When we rode their last year, we had the place to ourselves.

Just off the desirable communities edge of Bends westside is this amazing trail system that people from all over the world come to enjoy. It's lovely to see the clean trails where people show respect for the environment.

Phil's Trail is a fantastic trail system that has a trail for any rider, from beginner to black diamond. If you love mountain biking, you have to explore the many miles of Phil's Trail.
