Mountain Biking Alsea Falls Recreation Site

*****   Add a review
#9 of 302 mountain bike trails in Oregon
#308 in the world

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.

    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.

    A great ride, my favorite climb in the area. I've been taking the shorter route recently, Very flowy and fun.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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. :)

    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.

    Overall a really great ride. It's a fairly tough uphill climb to the trail head, (I think 3.5 miles) but the decent makes it well worth it. The upper most trail, High Baller, is fairly technical, but certainly not impossible. If you're not feeling up to it, there's also a bail out to the 2nd section. Once you finish that, the 2nd (Low Baller), and 3rd (Spring Board) sections are terrific. Perhaps best described as "flow" trails, they make the aforementioned climb, well worth it. I've been 5 times, and have loved each time more than the previous.
