Continuing my recent obsession of combining riding with random activities, Gabe, Nick and I bikepacked up the Deschutes for a couple days of bird hunting and general fucking around. We learned that (1) we need a good bird dog; (2) we can’t hit the broad side of a barn; and (3) Gabe doesn’t fuck around with boring camping food. Stellar trip, the area is highly recommended – just watch out for the goat heads!
-Easy, mostly flat riding up the rails-to-trails starting at the Deschutes State Rec Area.
-The trail ends gets rougher around mile 11 (@farmhouse) and ends around mile 17.
-Good camping at miles 12, 14, and 16.
