Interagency Annual Pass HangtagThe East Fort Rock OHV trail system lies on the east side of the Bend/Fort Rock Ranger District of the Deschutes National Forest. Trails are well signed and mapped and provide a full range of difficulty from easiest to most difficult. There are four staging areas, a campground/staging area, and four designated play areas. It provides 318 miles of trails and 83 miles of shared use roads for casual and competitive use covering about 110,000 acres.

The trail system is designed for Class I (Quads, 3-wheelers less than 50" wide and 800 pounds) and Class III (motorcycles) ATVs. Class II vehicles (side by sides, jeeps, etc) are allowed on routes designated as shared use only. Non-street legal motorcycles and ATV's may ride on roads designated as Shared Use. All trails are open to horses, mountain bikes, and other recreationists, so please watch for others and share the trails.

These trails and facilities are operated and maintained for your enjoyment by Central Oregon Combined OHV Operations (a Forest Service, & Bureau of Land Management Cooperative agreement), Oregon Department of Parks and Recreation ATV Funds, support from Polaris T.R.A.I.L.S and Yamaha OHV Initiative grants, several user groups and many other volunteers.
