Maston Area at Cline Buttes

Some of the best winter/spring/fall riding in Central Oregon can be found in the Maston area of BLM’s Cline Buttes Recreation Area. 

Maston, Cline Buttes

Located midway between Bend and Redmond, Maston has 16+ miles of equestrian trails that are entirely separate from the area’s mountain bike trails. However, the two sets of trails sometimes run roughly parallel, leaving as much land as possible open for wildlife habitat.

The Riding

The Maston area features a stacked-loop trail network, allowing you to ride loops of whatever length you like. The trails offer excellent footing in fall, winter, and spring but can be dusty in summer. All trail junctions are signed with lettered posts that correspond with the junction letters on BLM’s map of the area.

Depending on which loop you select, you may enjoy views of the Three Sisters or see the Deschutes River flowing through its deep canyon.  While you’re riding, keep an eye out for the deer, jackrabbits, coyotes, prairie falcons, and golden eagles that call this area home.

As you ride the Settlement Trail, the southernmost route at Maston, watch for the old stone foundations from an abandoned homestead.
