Trail Description
About this trail
A classic X-C MBT trail, this out-and-back ride has all the elements that make riding in the woods so rewarding. It has plenty of fast and twisty sections, plenty of roots and rocks, some nice short climbs and decents, and gorgeous scenery. Just follow the riverbank trail from the parking lot.
The ride can be easily extended by continuing up the trail past Rd. 1912 to the upper stretches of the North Fork Trail (this upper section is much more technical). or by turning left up Rd.1912 and returning via the Alpine Trail (see Oakridge rides).

Review: Scenic XC singletrack trail along the North Fork. Very beautiful trail!

Review: By it's self it's a great easy/ intermidate trail along the river. Used as a starting leg for a Alpine loop it gives a nice single-track fix before the long road climb up the mountain.

Review: I've ridden this trail as an out-and-back and as the first leg of a long loop up Rd. 1912 to Alpine Trail and back. It can be a little muddy through the first section in the wet season, and there is a considerable amount of poison oak as well. It's all worth it though, if you love X-C like I do. Great scenery and swimming holes, too.

Similar Trail: Brice Creek near Cottage Grove & South Willamette Trail near Lowell.
