This great trail runs through the heart of east Bend. Running north and south, it connects the Central Oregon Historic Canal Trail to Pilot Butte State Park. The trail is mostly off-street and features a tunnel below Highway 20.
Along the trail, you can access the Bend Senior Center and several parks and trails including Larkspur Park, Pilot Butte Neighborhood Park, and Pilot Butte State Park. The Coyner Trail is also close by and connects to Ponderosa Park, Juniper Park and Juniper Swim & Fitness Center. Users can add an additional mile by climbing the trail to the summit of Pilot Butte.
The trail meanders alongside an open canal past Pinewood Natural Area and users can see local wildlife, juniper trees, rabbit brush and alpine current.
