Biking

Bike on or off the Ranch

Black Butte Ranch has 18 miles of paved trails, giving guests boundless opportunities to survey the Ranch by bike. The Black Butte Ranch Bike Map contains a map of the trail system, along with suggested rides for your enjoyment. Glaze Meadow Rental Shop has a new fleet of bikes for the season. Wheel Fun bikes, offered through Lakeside Activity Center, are also available. These unique bikes, seating one to six people, are a fun way for families to explore the Ranch together.

Off the Ranch, biking opportunities are endless. Sisters Country is one of the premier mountain biking regions in the state, and is a silver-level bicycle-friendly community, as designated by the League of American Bicyclists. Sisters is home to three Scenic Bikeways: McKenzie Pass, Metolius Loops and Sisters to Smith Rock State Park. The best known and most popular trails include the Peterson Ridge Trail System, BBR to Suttle Lake Trail, the Suttle Tie Trail between Black Butte Ranch and Camp Sherman and the nearby McKenzie River Trail, which is widely regarded as one of the great epic bike trails in North America. For details on great rides and more, visit the cycling page at Sisters Country.

The Sisters Trail Alliance maintains trails around Sisters Country, along with the US Forest Service, the City of Sisters, Sisters Chamber of Commerce, Sisters School District and Sisters Parks and Recreation District. Some of the routes are near the Ranch. Check trail options at the Sisters Community Trail Maps page.
