Mountain Biking Forest Park - Leif Erikson Drive

***   Add a review
#113 of 305 mountain bike trails in Oregon
#5,073 in the world

A good ride for a beginer on a Mt. or cross bike. There is some good single track on side trails but most are closed to bikes. The people of Portland make a stink when they find you ridding them so watch out . Fire lane # 1 and # 3 are great down hills but are short. You can shuttle them if you have a car or truck.

Rider questions

Q: Can I ride this trail on my road bike?
A: If you’ve got wider tires (30mm+) you should be ok when it is dry. It can be pretty bumpy in places and there are occasional dips, rocks or loose sticks that I wouldn’t want to hit with 90 psi skinny road tires and a rigid frame. If it is at all wet, I’d definitely want tires with some deeper grip than street tires.
