Rimrock Trail


This accessible, out and back paved trail is popular for both bicyclists and hikers alike. The trail is located just outside of Bend and serves as a gateway for recreationalists to access the National Forest along the Cascade Lakes Highway. This trail is also informally known as "Good Dog."

There is also a tunnel to provide a safe crossing of the Cascade Lakes Highway along the trail. You can download a map of the Rimrock Trailhead area trails.
