Expect just about everything except water and mud. There are deep whoops, Silty sand, pumice all over the trail creating a unique riding experience. You will find long straights, curvy section in tight corners in the trees, steep drops and rocky areas and plenty of great views and challenges.

History

Chesley's Challenge (This is the description directly from our local maps and founder info.) This challenging 53 mile route commemorates the vision and tenacity of George Chesley who was the Fort rock district ranger responsible for the creation of East Fort Rock in 1993. Like this route, there were many obstacles to overcome and it was not a quick nor easy task to implement the first designated and managed OHV trail system in Central Oregon. Because of his efforts you have trails to ride today. Now it is your responsibility to ensure that you have trails to ride tomorrow.
