Mountain Biking Monument Peak Trails

****   Add a review
#61 of 301 mountain bike trails in Oregon
#2,836 in the world

Just a few miles south of Gates, is the Monument Peak Trail System. Hikers, mountain bikers, and horse back riders will enjoy approximately 19 miles of single track trail in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains. As you travel these trails you'll encounter diverse forests, ridge tops, meadows, waterfalls, and clear streams with breathtaking views of the Cascade Mountains and Santiam Valley in the distance. These trails are excellent for a quick hike or a full day trek. source: http://www.oregon.gov/odf/northcascade/pages/nonmotorizedtrails.aspx

    A nice trail system for a short ride. Not destination worthy, more of a 'worth it if it's local' place. Unfortunately horse use seriously degrades portions of the trail, turning wet spots into mud bogs and rendering one short uphill section into a stair stepped unrideable pitch.
