Route 7 Description: Bend - Tumalo Loop

A short ride north of Bend that takes in a variety of high desert landscapes and 560' of elevation change. Starting from downtown Bend and heading west on Newport, riders pass Central Oregon Community College on their way to Shevlin Park http://www.bendparksandrec.org/parkdetails.asp?ID=17 . A quick climb out of Shevlin Park leads riders through the juniper and pine forests along Johnson Market Road only to descend again back down to Tumalo Creek near Tumalo State Park.

Turn left instead of going right (to the park), cross Hwy 20 and on to the community of Tumalo. Leaving Tumalo,go right at the Y and head back up a short climb along Tumalo Road past many older rural residences, then over US97 to Deschutes Junction. Riders can pause here to check out the unique Funny Farm before heading back to Bend via Deschutes Market Road (watch for fast moving traffic).
