I used to participate in endurance rides (races) on horseback in the Sisters and other places. One of them was called the Paulina Creek Ride. Beautiful country to ride in. These rides were generally 50-100 miles long. Time depended on the trails, whether they were steep, rocky and so forth, but the footing on the trails in the Sisters was generally very good and you could cover a lot of ground fast. On my best horse (a pale grey, nearly white Arab I called "Blackie") we did 50 miles in about 3 1/2 hours weaving through the lush forest, crossing creeks and streams with views of the snow capped Sisters everywhere on a magical mystery tour as one. Man, was I fortunate to do that. So much fun.
