Metolius Loops newspaper article

This series of loops begins and ends at the historic Camp Sherman Store and Fly Shop on the beautiful Metolius River. 

These loops vary in difficulty from a short pedal to a 20 mile loop. The riding is flat or rolling and perfect for people looking for a mild ride. There is motorized traffic on the roads.

All loops along this route are on paved roads with some traffic. Shoulders are typically narrow. Several stopping points along the routes offer potable water and restrooms. 
Cyclists will enjoy beautiful views at the Metolius Fish Overlook, both placid and breathtaking glimpses of the river, peek-a-boo views of Mt. Jefferson, and find great educational stopping points for picnics and hikes at the Headwaters, the Wizard Falls Fish Hatchery, and a variety of historical sites.
These routes reflect the dynamic changes of each season; you will enjoy amazing greens of all hues in the spring and summer followed by stunning reds, yellows and oranges throughout the fall.
