#172 of 297 mountain bike trails in Oregon
#8,577 in the world

There are several dual purpose summer and winter trails located south of Phillips Lake that offer a variety of recreation opportunities. In the winter these trails are open for cross country (XC) skiiers and snowshoers, and during the spring, summer and fall they are used by mountain bikers, hikers and equiestrian riders. The trails include: Deer Lick Trail #1636, Coyote Cove #1637, Rimrock Trail #1638, and Jeep Ride Trail #1639. The main access for these trails is from the Phillips Lake South Shoreline Trail #1610. The trails travel through open ponderosa pine and fir forests with occasional views of Phillips Lake.
The Phillips Lake XC Ski and Snowshoe Area Trail page has maps, difficulty levels and other access information about the trails during the winter, and the Phillips Lake Trails page has maps and access information for the spring- fall months.

    These trails are well maintained and marked. There is NO water source - so bring your own. There is some confusion on the Rimrock trail, as there is a portion that runs along the power lines that isn't clearly marked and looks more like a cattle trail - with LOTS of rocks. I had a map, so I was able to find my way but it could be troublesome without maps.
