This is a loop in desert of Central Oregon. Mostly flat in a sagebrush environment and a multi-use trail mainly used by horses, but could be great for mtn biking if more people would ride it. I suggest starting at Scales Corral and riding southwest - there is a trail marker there.
You will go southwest, then turn north and cross Laurel Lane. Continue straight across the road and follow the trail. It will then turn east after a little over 1 mile. When you are about 1 mile west of why 26, you will turn south and then take a right where the trail splits to get back to the starting point.
I got lost and could not find the trail in some places - so route finding is difficult in places where the trail meets and follows dirt roads.
Advice: you really do need a map - and drive the dirt roads around the trail to make sure you know what you are doing the first time you ride it.
This is a GREAT April ride in the desert sagebrush. You all need to ride it to pack it down with bike tread and then it will be a favorite early season ride for Portland, Bend and Hood River mtn bikers.
