Mt. Bachelor SummerHike up, mountain bike down or take a leisurely chairlift ride above a dormant volcano this summer at Mt. Bachelor, where you can also challenge friends and family to 18 holes of on-mountain disc golf and dine on a deck at sunset at the mountain's Pine Marten Lodge. Typically open through the fall, the Mt. Bachelor downhill bike park spans more than 10 miles of trails, excavated to singletrack.
Nearby, bustling Bend, Oregon offers up more than two dozen golf courses, fly fishing, rock climbing, white water rafting, and tours of the beer, cultural, historic and culinary kind, among many others. For a more mellow summer vacation experience, full-service and day spas abound.
