The Peterson Ridge Overlook showcases views of the Cascades.

Peterson Ridge Trail system has a route for every type of mountain biker.

Whether it’s your first time or you’ve been shredding for years, Peterson Ridge has a variety of options just a half mile from downtown Sisters where it’s easy to rent a bike and get on the trail. A ride through the beautiful ponderosa pines leads you to viewpoints of your choosing offering stellar views of the cascades.

“Peterson Ridge is more on the trail to cross country side of mountain biking,” said Jacob Polachek, from Blazin Saddles bike shop in Sisters. “In terms of rideability or who the trail is for pretty much applies to just about everybody.”

Peterson Ridge is among the more popular riding spots around Sisters, with over 20 miles of single track that is also used for walking, running and biking, as well as some trails for horseback riding. Oregon’s largest mountain bike race, the Sisters Stampede, is also held there each May.
