Outdoor Recreation with Your Dog
You came for the recreation and outdoor adventures in Sunriver and your dog can enjoy many of the greatest trails in Central Oregon. Seeing people on paddleboards with their dog at the front of the board cruising up the Deschutes River is commonplace here. Sunriver’s 30+ miles of paved pathways make for the perfect evening stroll after the heat of the day has dissipated. Enjoy a scenic walk along the Deschutes River with your canine companion in tow. Additional outdoor recreation opportunities for you and your pup include:
The Dog Park at Mt. Bachelor
Dogs have a blast playing in the snow off-leash with other pups. Mt. Bachelor is open for skiing and snowboarding in the winter and mountain biking in the summer. Bring your dog to the Dog Park at Mt. Bachelor on hot summer days to stay cool at the higher elevation.
Green Lakes to Soda Creek Trail
This long, but moderate, trail includes a 12-mile hike in the Three Sisters Wilderness that can take about seven hours to complete with your dog. This trail showcases the endless beauty of Central Oregon with mountain views, waterfalls, alpine meadows, and volcanic rock. A Northwest Forest Pass is required.
Big Sky Youth Sports Complex Dog Park
Bring your dog to this off-leash dog park in Bend to play on trails, grassy areas, water spigots and picnic tables. Dogs have a blast running and playing off-leash with other pups. There is also an agility course for advanced pups as well as plenty of water stations.
It’s important to note that dogs are allowed off-leash in Sunriver, as long as they are under voice command. The Sunriver Owner’s Association asks that you carry a leash at all times.
