Well maintained trail
May 2021
Love this trail! The only issue is that there are so many stops to take pictures. It is a beautiful well maintained trail that gifts you with the view of the Deschutes river and rock formations.

It is a dusty trail and I wear my older hiking or tenna shoes when on this trail. Weekend summer months are VERY high traffic. My suggestion is spring or early fall. I visited this May and there was snow in the air.

great hike
Apr 2021
Well marked and nice hike. It is clearly marked as one way for most of it (due to the pandemic) but of course people do not follow these directions and do not wear masks.

Peaceful urban hike
Mar 2021
Mid-winter weekday hike on snow covered trail along the river, Trail Head No. 2.1, was peaceful, very few people or dogs and nice river views. Flat ground, relatively easy although is some places snow was icy or deep. Poles may be helpful.

Lovely Evening Walk
Jul 2019
We stayed at a hotel adjacent to the trail and went out for a peaceful walk at sunset. The paved trail follows along the banks of the Deschutes River, so the scenery is great. It's suitable for wheelchairs and strollers and passes through Riverbend Park and Farewell Bend Park where there is a playground and some picnic shelters. We easily walked about 2 miles, crossing bridges over the river to go down both sides. There were a lot of people out walking or jogging and we saw people fishing, kayaking and paddle-boarding on the river. Waterfowl were abundant and didn't seem bothered by the company. The Mill District shopping area is right next to the trail; it would make a fun date night to have dinner at one of the restaurants there and then take a walk along the river.

Beautiful walk.

This is a wonderful walk along the river. Only went a short distance because it was quite cold. Will definitely return this summer for a longer walk.

Not many places like this in other towns
Oct 2019
Parts of trail are right at the edge of town. The river is beautiful. One drawback with location is parts near town can be pretty busy.

Beautiful country view close to town
Oct 2019
This is a beautiful walk for all ages, and you can go as far as you like. The water is crystal clear, plenty of fish and birds and the flora is spectacular, particularly in Autumn when we were there.

We walked for an hour or two and then went to the Old Mill District for coffee, fantastic way to spend a few hours. There are plenty of places along the way to cross the driver and come back, and there are a few walking tracks signposted.

If you are visiting Bend this is a must see.

Great walk

The path around the river is very easy, and rewarding with views the whole way. Lots of different small trails off the main one so you can explore your own way.
