This will be a casual, Intermediate, moderately paced ride for those who enjoy climbing, but would like to do so in a relaxed style. Mrazek is one of Bend's beloved trails because it has great flow in both directions. It even has its own Facebook page!
While the climb up Mrazek isn't extremely difficult, it seems wonderfully endless.
We'll likely be climbing for an hour or two as we make our way up to the turnaround spot for this ride near the 500 and 700 dirt roads. We'll gain close to 2,000' in elevation and then get to enjoy the fruits of our labor on the way down.
