Peterson Ridge Trail - Advanced Beginner Mountain Ride

The trail is generally easy with moderate difficulty sections in some locations and gains elevation as it heads south.  There are a few small, rocky sections (both up and downhill), a few short climbs, miles upon miles of flowy singletrack, and some pretty amazing viewpoints - depending on cloud cover, of course.










  • Ride Rating - Intermediate, 17-19 miles.
  • Endurance Rating - Intermediate (E3) - This is a slightly longer rider with a (T2.5) technical rating.
  • Pace - Steady pace with stops at major intersections and viewpoints (if it's not too chilly).

(to see rating descriptions, click "More" tab above and select “Files”)

For those meeting in Sisters instead of the Cascade Village Starbucks, we'll meet at Three Creeks Brewing to ride over to the trail head.

After the ride, we'll pedal back to Three Creeks Brewing for a discounted beverage and perhaps some food.

PLEASE NOTE: As the weather can change quickly at this time of year, please be sure to check back before the ride to see if there are any changes.  Provided the ride is a 'go', remember to dress warm and layer.

Ride Rating:  Upper Intermediate; Endurance Rating E2.5, Technical Rating T3.0 (to see rating descriptions, click "More" tab above and select "Files"), As always....estimate of 30 Miles and about 1200’ of climbing? (LOL) About 3.0 hours.

    It has to be a great ride when there are as many fat bikes as there are mountain bikes. Thanks Siobhan!
