Maston Trail System
There's a hidden jewel on the east side of the Cascade Mountains. Here, there are over 4,000 acres where mountain bikers and horseback riders share the space but not the trails. Hikers can meander along lava rock-lined routes to breathtaking views of the Deschutes River, and trail runners can beat the snow in the winter. Start your adventure into the Maston Area through the Maston or Juniper Trailheads, and spend a day exploring the geology and landscape of Central Oregon on almost 50 miles of trail. Lunch under the twisted limbs of an old-growth juniper and watch eagles soar overhead.
Know Before You Go:
- Open year round and often available in winter when higher elevation trails are snowed out.
- No water.
- No overnight camping.
- Juniper is a small trailhead for single vehicles only.
- This area is open to trapping, so dogs need to stay within sight of you; control dogs around horses, bicyclists, and hikers.
Point of Interest:
Discover this 4,000-acre land of opportunity! The rides follow gentle draws around basalt outcrops, while the hikes go further into the rugged Deschutes River Canyon and the views shift from great to incredible!
Maston Trail Brochure
There are two trailheads that access the Maston Trail Use Area. To get to the main Maston Trailhead from Bend, head north to Tumalo and then turn on to Cline Falls Highway. Travel about 4.5 miles toward Eagle Crest Resort. Turn right (east) on Newcomb Road and the trailhead is 3/4 mile down the road on your left.
The smaller Juniper Trailhead is located along Cline Falls Highway at the north end of the Maston area.
