Bachelor Mt. Bachelor resort in central Oregon opened its Downhill Bike Park in 2013. Work is expected to begin in summer 2021 on a new hiking and mountain biking trail.

Mt. Bachelor ski resort is moving forward with plans to build a new 5.5-mile hiking and mountain biking trail that will loop from the mountain’s base to the summit.
