Summary:
If you want a flowing trail with no technical sections and great views, here you go. It is easy (I rode it sans helmet because I left mine....somewhere) but lasted for 2+ hours. It is singletrack the whole time and well marked. Central Oregon is apparently experiencing unusual weather that is a bummer for snow but conducive for biking.

Recommended Route:
I went west-east because that is what the map suggested, but I would look at where the sun is/will be. If you are facing the sun, just have SUNglasses with you, duh.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
I cannot give recommendations, but I can advise not to ride any desert terrain when the conditions are wet! This is important for trail stability. Ask at any local bike shop!

Summary:
Great ride! Lots of fun with some awesome views. It was just a little over 18 miles and the trail was well marked. Not a ton of climbing but a few short challenges along the way. Mostly smooth single track but also some fun rocky sections.

Recommended Route:
I took the PRT West from the parking area until it linked up to the PRT East up on the ridge.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Not exactly the same area but McKenzie River Trail and Waldo Lake.

Summary:
This trail system is undergoing a huge upgrade (08/09), adding 20+ miles to the original 10 for 30+ total. Old road/doubletrack sections are being moved to single, and a new leg plus 10 connectors is making a great stacked loop system with many options and some fabulous views. 15 miles are done as of 11/08, five to go, signing will begin in the Spring...46 junctions. Close to town is "easy", beyond is "intermediate", and considerably more challenging aerobically and technically than the old trail. There are and will be more technical options, marked "expert". Used to be a 2 hour ride, can hardly see it all now in one day. For updates and a map go to sisterstrails.com.

Recommended Route:
Ten loops (stacked) and innumerable variants possible.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
McKenzie River, Phil's

Summary:
The trail is surface is harder (less sandy) in late spring or after a rain making for a more enjoyable ride. Feels relatively fast both up and down. I ride this trail whenever my wife and I are in Sisters and I am still not sick of it. It is a fun refreshing ride that only takes about an hour or so depending on how long you spend at the top. Definitely not technical but a good ride with beautiful views of the Sisters, Jefferson, Washington, Three Finger Jack, Hood, and even Adams on a clear day.
