Trail Description
About this trail
Since this is the namesake for the entire trail system and the oldest trail in the area, I kind of expected a blown-out doubletrack. That is entirely NOT the case! COTA has done an amazing job of maintenance, and this trail is in absolutely excellent condition! Over the years, Phil's has gained an absolutely incredible flow that makes for a very fast, pedally descent.

Review: Phil's has some good flow and jumps on the "harder" trails, but there are some great beginner trails that you can work on your skills. In addition to a pump track, small jump track, and skills area. Everytime we've ridden here it's been a hoot.

Review: Phils definitely lived up to all the hype. All of the trails in Phils area are very well kept and weren't too busy despite the massive parking lot that was full. We pedaled up Bens trail which is a climbing trail and then descended Phils. Phils was fast and fun, with a fair amount of rocks, roots, and turns to keep it interesting the whole way down. Great for riders of all levels. Can't wait to revisit Bend and enjoy this trail once again.

Review: Four stars just for the fun factor. The central trail of the Phil's Area system totaling 7 miles of one way downhill flow. Nothing hard about it....just hop on and roll along. One could probably ride the whole thing without pedaling if you wanted just to cruise. Somewhat of a gully in spots due to the heavy usage, but overall well maintained. Great for beginners or anyone finishing a ride from the outer sno-parks.

Review: Legendary trail system made even better by a rad group of locals. One of the coolest cycling towns in the country, hands down.

Review: Not hard, but flowy and fun. Great break in challenge level if you are doing the whole Bachelor to Bend ride. A must ride for everyone in the area.

Review: Yes, it flows .... but 90% of it could have a green rating, and the decline is so very gradual.

I do like the safety aspects of the one-way usage.
