Horse Ridge is one of Bend’s winter-time mountain biking areas. About 16 miles east of town on Highway 20, the terrain and foliage is really different from the trails you’ll find in the Phil’s area — it’s a wide-open, rocky, juniper forest. Peaking out at about 4700′ the ridge offers quite a bit of climbing and fun downhill in a compact area. All total, there are about 30 miles of trails on Horse Ridge — so lots of great mountain biking loop options to mix things up.
