Sisters Bike Trail - The trail consists of a short and long loop that are marked with brown and white bike path signs. It crosses a number of dirt roads, so it is important that users pay close attention to the trail markers to avoid confusion. Some of these roads are still in use; use caution when crossing them. Eagle Rock Loop: Five and one half miles. The first 1/4 mile off the pavement winds through uneven terrain with some rocky areas. The terrain levels as the trail proceeds through an area of thinned trees that provides some good opportunities to observe wildlife. After 1.7 miles, the trail crosses a small wooden bridge. This is where the loop itself intersects. You may proceed either direction, but the remainder of the trail description follows the right fork.
The area surrounding this section of the trail is very open and manzanita bushes grow along the trail. At 2.05 miles the trail goes to the left and parallels Squaw Creek canal. The short and long loop intersection is at approximately 2.65 miles where the trail crosses Squaw Creek. Continue left to complete the short loop and return to Sisters. Peterson Ridge Loop: This loop corresponds directly with the first 2.5 miles of the Eagle Rock Loop until you reach the Squaw Creek Canal Bridge. Cross the bridge and follow the trail along the south side of the canal. Watch for intersecting rock formations and old growth juniper in the next mile of trail. As the trail starts to climb, mountain views open to the west. It is approximately 3 miles further to the loop intersection. The loop may be traveled in either direction- it is 2.1 miles around.

Directions from Sisters: The trailhead is located at the Village Green Park in Sisters. To get to the park, turn south on Elm Street (forest road 16) off of Highway 20. Proceed down Elm Street for approximately one quarter mile and turn into the parking area on the left. Public restrooms and drinking water are located in the park.
