E-bikes NOT allowed on The Lair
The Lair is Bend’s progressive mountain bike free ride area. Close to town, it’s fun place to work on your jumping skills. There are several trails ranging from one which is “easily rollable” to a “pro” line for serious dirt jumpers only. You can find the Lair by riding Marvin’s Garden from the Phil’s Trailhead.
A few things to keep in mind when visiting the Lair: the jump lines are downhill only and riders must use the climbing route to get back to the starting gate; always ride within your limits — start small and progress from there; respect other peoples space — avoid crowding or rushing other riders; lastly, be aware of changes in the lines — the Lair is a work in progress and is often being re-worked and re-shaped.
Like all trails in Central Oregon, don’t ride the Lair when it’s muddy. If you can see your tracks, it’s too muddy. A lot of effort goes into keeping the jumps maintained — so do your part to keep them prime!
This trail is maintained by Central Oregon Trail Alliance.

Anyone missing a small full suspension aluminum bike and small helmet?
Looks like “Dad” forgot to load up the bike and helmet. I found the bike and helmet at one of the Tetherow entrances to The Lair.
The Lair is unrideable. As is much of Phil’s. I posted some pics on the Hutch’s Bicycles Facebook page.
Riding just fine, the lair sits in the sun so all the dirt is dry.
The Lair is riding great! The jumps up top have been ridden in and are packed and grippy
