Phil’s Trail is one of my favorite Mt Biking destinations in Bend, Oregon.  It’s only 8 minutes from downtown Bend and has much to offer.  You can ride a near endless variety of loops and trails.  There is map posted at the trail head which will help guide you; there are also junction markers when the trail splits off.  The trails are mostly rolling terrain and mid slopes; the difficulty ranges from easy to black diamond with rocks, switch backs and drop offs.  There are a number of mounds to jump, steep corners and trees to maneuver through.

Quick Note: Forest Service Pass requirement is not enforced.
