Trail Description
About this trail
These trails are brand new. Three mile peddle up a paved road and then five miles of flow single track.

Each trail has its own character:
Highballer - rooty, hand - built
Lower Highballer - large, sweeping berms, machine built
Springboard - very flowy pump track trail
Dutchman and Bailout - more traditional single track.

These trails are amazing. There is nothing like it along the I-5 corridor. The best part? When I was there in Sept 2014, new trails were under construction.

This system is not quite on the radar yet. When word gets out, people will flock to Alsea.

Extra bonus - campground across the street.

Thanks to Team Dirt, the BLM, and IMBA for this gem.

Review: Awesome trail, although it's pretty short at around 2-3 miles of DH after the road climb uphill to the trailhead. Smooth and fast. Great for all skill levels including beginners. Very beautiful trail in scenic forest. Also there is a new trail section not listed in the singletracks description which was a nice surprise.

Review: Best flow trail in Oregon. Basically one super long fast pump track on perfectly packed clay soil. A huge amount of effort goes into maintaining this trial and it shoes. Will test your full body fitness ( particularly lower back) if you try to hit it in one continuous run. Perfect for a shuttle day. A beast of a climb to the top otherwise.

Review: Awesome trail system. Somewhat technical if ridden fast, but can be ridden by beginners as well. Variety of natural and man made features. A bit of a ride to the top via paved and gravel roads, worth the ride though.

Review: Only gave it 3 because it's rather short in distance and fairly remote, BUT... Team Dirt has a master plan with 30 miles in the next 3-5 years so this rating will go up. Very smart design and fun for any skill level. camping across the street. nice paved road climb to top making shuttle-ready. great place, but will be back when they get some more trail. that said, I live 2.5 hours away. if I lived in Eugene or Corvallis, would be my go-to trail.

Review: This was my first true experience on a mountain trail. Spent the first part of the day with Team Dirt building a new trail (upper Highballer I believe) and then rode for a few hours. The first part is a bit technical, but from there on it's very flowy and extremely enjoyable. :)

Review: Fun & fast downhill after a 3 mile climb on a paved road to the trail start. Bottom half is machine made....think roller coaster! Map it directions on this site took me directly to the trailhead; paved the entire route.
