Deschutes National Forest
When you stay at Bend Inn and Suites, the Deschutes National Forest and its miles of trails are right outside your door! There are abundant wilderness routes for hiking and horseback riding.

The Deschutes River is a destination for all types of water sports, including whitewater rafting, kayaking, SUPing, and fishing.
Seemingly endless trails, scenic roads, and sunny weather make Central Oregon a dream for both mountain bikers and road cyclists.
Mountain bikers can choose hundreds of miles of singletrack in nearby Deschutes National Forest, or hit up the downhill bike park at Mt. Bachelor (summer months only).
