Mountain Biking Cummins Creek

****   Add a review
#25 of 302 mountain bike trails in Oregon
#1,406 in the world

From the trailhead, you can either ride the trail to the top then back down, or you can ride the paved/gravel road about 5 miles to the upper T.H. then choose one of two alternate routes back to the car. The distance is such that you can ride the loop twice and do both routes. This road is located at the base of Cape Perpetua where you turn to go to the C.G. Follow it past the C.G. to a Y where you bear right. The pavement ends after a couple miles, and the T.H. is on the right at around the 5 mile mark. If you opt for the up and down route, take the fork to the right (the old trail) at around the 1.4 mile mark on the way up. And the other fork on the way down. The northernmost fork is rather technical.

Getting there
Follow Hwy. 101 about 3 miles north of Yachats (23 miles north of Florence) to the gravel road across from Neptune State Park. The trailhead is at the end of this road, and parking here is free. If you prefer, you can park either in the Cape Perpetua Visitor Center parking lot, or at the Campground .5 miles north of there. Both of these places require a parking permit which can be purchased at the Visitor Center.

    Good trail, at least for Oregon Coast standards. The climb up the middle mile of the loop is a bit rocky and steep but otherwise it is a fun trail.

    We loved this ride! We picked a beautiful blue skied March day of 70 degrees. A bit unusual this time of year for the Oregon coast. My son is a beginner and he did fine, especially on the right-hand side of the loop. It gets a bit steeper about 1 mile from the top but mostly a gradual slope making this a very enjoyable ride. Lots of beautiful green forest and wild flowers on the trail. Miniature waterfalls trickling from moss-laden rocks are lovely. Slow down so you don't miss it!

    I parked at the TH, then rode back down to Hwy. 101, turned right and rode to Road 55, turned right and rode to the upper TH. The first time down I took the left fork in the woods. It's a little longer and a little tamer than the right fork. The second time I took the right fork. This is a technical challenge in some spots to be sure.
    Resist the temptation to ride the OCT along Hwy. 101. It's strictly off limits to bikes and dilligently enforced.
