Four Wheel Driving in Elk Lake, Bend, Oregon USA

Trail :
11 miles (17.70 km)
Elk Lake is a lake located along the Cascade Lakes Scenic Byway, only at eleven miles passing Mount Bachelor in Central Oregon Cascade Mountains.

Relatively close to Bend, it is more or less a 35 minute drive. However in winter, there is no other way to access this place, but by your own four wheel vehicle or a snowmobile and maybe by skiing for the most fit and daring ones.

It is an 11 mi/17.70 km ski trip through some of the most breathtaking scenery of Central Oregon. The conditions could be extremely difficult, so maybe you want to make sure you can reach there before trying it.

You can have some wild rides on vertical ascents and descends on this off road journey, through the beautiful forest trails. You should not miss visiting Canyon Lake, a lake beautifully shaped every year by ice crystals, a spectacle worth seeing, while being there. Regarding accommodation, you won’t have problems locating something nearby.
