Great road to Lava Lake. (All clear!)


The road up to Kwolh Shelter. Made it about 2 miles before the shelter. Could have gotten around the tree with some work but the road was blocked ahead by snow anyway.



Deschutes river is flowin


Was going to head to Little Cultus and check out Irish and Taylor Lakes snow level but I ran out of time.


No pics, but the power lines are rideable from Wanoga Butte back to road 41.

Ashwood Roads

Looking for a little help from you guys in the area. Thinking of doing Ashwood Gosner in the morning. It rained off and on most of the day
at my house on the wet side of the Cascades. Did you folks in the Madras area
get any rain today and if so do you think it was enough to mess with those roads
Thanks

I'm not in that area but it's been so dry the roads likely dried out quickly.

Sorry I can't help you. I'm sitting in Ouray CO drinking coffee, having just ridden the million dollar highway.

The weather here is awesome....hehehehe.

About to ride HWY 50. I'm not bragging... really.

Give me another week+ and I'll let you know if it's raining in Madras.

It rained enough here in Bend yesterday to get things wet, but it's already drying out. Not sure what it did up north.

Go for it!

There hasn't been enough rain here in Madras to keep me from heading that direction. (If I had the time)...

Good times in the great weather, here is a pic from my solo Monday-Funday ride

And a few more from some riding with Mr. Dual Sport, I got to show him the fun way round to Ashwood and the long way back to 26


And Three Creeks is my favorite lake on a sunny afternoon

Here is a rough analog version. Beautiful vistas alongs these roads and easy to find and follow, enjoy!



I took this pic last fall doing the route from the oposite direction and was just a small section of a big ride. This is just north east of the Painted Hills looking north towards Burnt Ranch.



We didn't take too many photos last week because we got a late start on our ride and Mr. DS was worried about his ticking time bomb of a bike so we stayed steady on the move!

New to the area

Hey all, I just moved to Bend a couple of months ago so naturally I have been out and about checking out this Dual Sport paradise. Here are a few pics from rides around the area with a buddy.

Jack creek area:






North off Green Ridge


Paulina Peak


And a few from the Painted Hills
