Review: All things considered, especially that there aren't really many trails around, I think this is a good trail. The lower part from the campground trailhead to the hatchery has a lot of roots and some spots you have to get off to get up the stairs/log dropoff, but nothing a true mountain biker can't handle. It's technical and if you get a good line there's spots to build some speed. Once you get to the opening after the highway, ride straight through to the hatchery (looks like a swimming pool from a distance) and at the end up the pools there's an archway where the trail starts again. Now this is where it gets a little more exciting. Steeper terrain and a lot less roots, it's a good climb getting up but well worth the descent. There's a lot of spots to catch some air and even some flowy areas you can pump to keep speed. Also, I didn't run into a single person on the trail but a group was leaving as I pulled up. Worth a trip if nearby but obviously if Mt. Hood is equidistant, well you could figure that one out.

Review: The 100ft falls trail save this area from being a total waste of time - but dont go to too much effort to come here,

Disappointing when this is one of the few approved MTB areas in the vicinity.
