Central Oregon Waterfalls – Tumalo Falls by Fat Bike

Tumalo Falls is one of Central Oregon’s most spectacular natural features. The 97-foot falls of Tumalo Creek is a popular and easily-accessible spot for visitors and locals alike looking for a scenic spot and gentle hike.

But it’s also a sight-to-see come winter when the falls sometimes freezes over, creating an even more amazing landscape. Getting there in the winter, however, can be a bit of a challenge. Enter fat bikes! Fat biking is the latest outdoor activity to take Central Oregon by storm. The huge mountain bike tires are built for snow and sand and make riding a bike in the winter not only doable, but downright enjoyable. (And when you’re a mountain bike Mecca like Central Oregon, folks will try anything to keep riding year-round.)

Follow along as My Window’s Mackenzie Wilson gets some fat biking advice and heads out on the trail with The Hub Cyclery owner TJ Jordan.

Interested in giving fat biking a try? You can rent the burly bikes at a handful of local bike shops including The Hub Cyclery, Pine Mountain Sports, and Hutch’s Bicycles.
