Trail Reports

  • Robert Rekward March 20, 2017 at 8:44 amGot a report from Trinity Bikes in Redmond on March 20th that some really sketchy folks have set up a homeless camp on the “South” trail (the Radlands Outer Loop). That trail should be avoided.
  • Erik Santner March 3, 2017 at 10:07 amRode Radlands yesterday, things are pretty nice on the north side....a little mud. The south loop was decent, a few sections of snow. There were motorcycle tracks on the south loop and the typical homeless camps. It was great to get out!!
  • Erik Johnson February 26, 2017 at 6:55 pmRode the Radlands today; northern section was riding really well with little to no mud, the outer loop was pretty muddy with some snow patches in places. Completely rideable throughout though.
  • Lee Heckman January 13, 2017 at 3:31 pmSnowshoe the Radlands!! Perfect right now. Snow generally 12-18 inches deep- you can just head off in any direction. The lava bubbles are fun, and the views are great. The parking lot off Maple is pretty deep snow, not plowed. I got in and out today, with some difficulty. Unless you have a big truck, just park at the Terrain Park and go in that way. All the trails are completely buried in snow at the moment.
  • Michael Davis May 18, 2016 at 3:44 pmYeah, last time I rode I wondered if people are trying to camp on the trail and bury the it in garbage to keep the place to themselves.
  • Bruce Bradshaw April 11, 2016 at 8:30 pmThe Outer Loop is getting dusty and loose. Also it has quite a bit more trash than a month ago. The southern most stretches have been driven over by trucks and ATV's. There are a couple of semi-permanent looking RV's set up close to the trail, too.

Trail Description

Got a report from Trinity Bikes in Redmond on March 20th that some really sketchy folks have set up a homeless camp on the “South” trail (the Radlands Outer Loop). That trail should be avoided.

The Radlands is a fairly recent addition to the Redmond area MTB scene. There are 8+ miles of rolling terrain through a fairly open forest of Juniper. The trails are similar to Maston. Not a lot of elevation to work with — but some technical obstacles here and there, and great views of the Cascades and nearby Smith Rock.

With low elevation, and rocky soil, The Radlands is a good winter riding option in Central Oregon.

    Perfect today!

    ***Just updated status to Riding Well. Note caveats below.***

    Rode Radlands today. From sports complex out Outer Loop and around to Hot Spur and back to the complex. The west side of the loop (Redmond side) had moments of mud. But not nearly as bad as Maston. Once around to east side of the loop it was riding pretty well overall. Just a bit sticky in spots. If we have a few more warm days like today, this flat loop should be riding very well for those looking for fast and flat.

    Tried Radlands today because Maston was so muddy. Just as bad. :-(
