Winter Trails

Wanoga Trail Info

The Wanoga Sno-park offers several miles of ski, snowshoe, and walking trails ~15 miles from downtown Bend.  Grooming updates are provided via Facebook and Twitter. Typically, grooming takes place on Tues, Thurs, Sat, and Sun during the winter season.


The ski trail is one-way, follows a curvy double loop in a clockwise direction, and is 3.5 km (2 miles) long. The snowshoe trail is groomed and is about a mile long, through the trees. Blue diamonds and bamboo poles mark the left side of both trails. We've cleared the ski trail approximately 18 feet to the right of these markers. Please do not walk on the ski trail. Be aware that dogs may post hole on and off the trails.

  • The ski trail is shown in blue. Combined, the outer and inner loops are approximately 3.5 km (2 miles).

  • Low elevation, so variable snow quality.

  • Ungroomed, with skiers, snowshoers, and walkers, so surface often is poor.

  • No poop bag dispensers or trash cans.

The Badlands

  • You’ll find a rugged beauty in Oregon’s Badlands, dry and prickly with ancient juniper and volcanic ridges.

  • Fifty miles of trails wind through 29,000 acres, 16 miles east of Bend on Highway 20.

  • You’ll encounter hikers, horseback riders and wildlife in the Badlands, so make sure your dog is in your control at all times.

  • Trails of note include Badlands Rock Trail, Flatiron Rock Trail, and Tumulus Trail.

  • These are spring, fall and winter trails as summertime brings hot sandy soil that burns our dog's feet.

Do Your Part — Keep the Trail Free of Poop

There are multiple poop bag dispensers and trash cans along the trail, including at the start. Please do your part to keep the trail clean — pick up your dog's poop and place it in one of the cans. Many dogs poop at the beginning of the trail, so pay particular attention there. The black bags are biodegradable and easy to carry. Turn the bag inside out, pick up the poop, wrap over, and tie off. You’ll end up with the strap on the outside. You can use this strap to attach the bag to the outside of your butt pack or backpack – in order to bring the bag to the next trash can.
