Getting there
Take I-84 to the Echo/Lexington Exit 193; turn left at the stop sign. Follow the signs to Echo—about 4 miles. Turn right at the first stop sign in Echo (right turn without stopping), go ¼ mile and turn left—over the RR tracks and into downtown ECHO…Stay on the main drag through Echo (there is no sign to downtown, but it's left on Main Street, the road toward Lexington), cross the Umatilla River and Westland Irrigation Canal (total distance is about 1 mile) until you reach the top of the hill---turn left on Snow Road (gravel). The total distance from downtown ECHO to Snow Rd is about one mile. Go left (south) on Snow Rd for about 1.6 miles until you come to a WINDMILL on your left—turn left on the gravel road next to the WINDMILL (east). Follow this gravel road for about 0.7 miles (there will be several rock pits on the right and a pheasant hunting club sign on your left) and at the bottom of the hill, turn right through the gate. The parking lot is here and the Trail Signs are up and easily visible (A Trail).

    Nice trails in good shape. Nothing very technical but fun flowing trails. No brutal climbs but constant up and down. Rough road driving to trailhead but worth it.

    Very fast and smooth system. As you are in wide open farm country the scenery could get a little boring but if you pump it out and push for speed then the trail system could be a little challenging and serve for a good workout. I would say this is friendly to all levels of riders.

    Rough singletrack, bring a full suspension bike.

    These trails are fun and rolling sweet desert single track. The difficulty rating is set a little high on the trail stats. I would say that it is simple fun singletrack with some obstacles

    Fun set of trails for the advanced rider. Beginners will find many enjoyable sections as well with nothing really challenging up or down. There are 4 loops with some obstacles provided by the trail designers.

    The trails are currently in great shape with some over growth in sections, but the club is doing a nice job with cleaning it.

    No long drags uphill, just a series of short uphills followed by interesting downhill rides. Much of the ride is protected from winds.

    It is fairly scenic, being desert steppe, with vistas of the surrounding mountains and hills.

    Good singletrack loop with lots of medium and advanced technical sections. Lots of up and down, no long sustained climbs, but if you peg it, the trail will definitely give you a good workout. Your not likely to run into a lot of people out there so it's a good place to get away. There are some rough and rocky sections so be prepared for just about anything.
