This trail is a short close by ride that's pretty fun, this trail has a little bit of everything... technical terrain that can be a bit tricky, small but steep hills and great scenery. Surprisingly not too many people considering how close it is.

Rider questions

Q: Would rhis be a good starter trail for a 55 year old newb.?
A: Yes. Most of the singletrack is easy with a few intermediate section that can be walked. In addition to the singletrack, there's a wide gravel path circumventing the lake and to the east of the lake.

    If your looking for downhill, this is the best local place for that. (besides Thrillium) there is a trail called red tape at the top which is great for Downhill. I just built a drop at the pump track area (turn right after the first dam if coming from Lacamas park.) if you head that direction there is a great place for learning how to gap jump, there are also smaller jumps for the beginners. if you head from the pump track area and take a trail going up the hill just past the drop by the chain fence. you can ride up to a school, turn right just before you get to the school and there is a really fun but kind of short jump line with lots a doubles. there is one bigger double so watch out if you are new. Great place to progress!

    Pretty fun spot with some loops and out & backs. The ST off the south end on the east side of the lake was pretty epic! Rutted out sections, jumps, wood crossings and some decent burms. Not too far from Portland which makes it an easy 1/2 day getaway.

    What a spiderweb of trails! Hats off to the folks that built the trails. Plenty of ST peeling off the raw beginner friendly main trail. I didn't begin to ride them all, but if you like to explore, you can stay busy here. Many are nice trips through the woods, but there are burly sections to be found near Lower Falls and above Woodland Falls. Red Tape trail is a fun half mile DH run or a challenging uphill grind.

    This is no destination, but if you're in the area and looking for a quick thrash through the woods, it's great. Unless you ride with somebody who knows it, it'll take a few rides to find all the hidden trails. Don't miss the section called Red Tape! It's like a mini DH. No signage and flow between singletrack sections is poor. You'll frequently be dumped out on the main wide path, but the next ST is never far away. Once you get it all sorted out, you can get a good 7-9 miles (some of which you may repeat) of riding. I like to night ride hear, but can stay fairly wet.

    Started from the indicated trail head (i think) - labelled as Fallen Leaves Lake car park.
    Found a bunch of trails on the West side of the lake.
    Well-formed clay based trails, through beautiful old forest. Trails were intermediate to advanced - fun and well build, with short (very) sharp elevation gain and occasional log bridge etc.
    There was zero signage, with a spiderweb network of trails - not ideal.
    On a warm day, this is also a veritable tropical rain forest - hot and sweaty.

    Great that it is located so close to town. Likely more trails than we found, but hard to know for a newbie to the area without some navigation assistance.

    Nice, quiet, out-of-the way trail that has a variety of conditions that will entertain most bikers. I enjoyed riding the rocky sections, since I don't get a lot of practice with that where I normally ride. I only ran into two runners and no bikers. Good signs to let you know where you are at. Great place to just explore. I think I hit everything but not totally sure, but I'll be back.

    A hidden treasure just minutes from downtown Camas. The park has something for everyone from gravel double track for beginners to technical rock gardens and log bridges on a couple of the more advanced sections of trails. Once you learn the network you can easily put together 20 or so miles. The trails are maintained by a local advocacy group that does a good job of getting the word out about trail conditions as they change based on weather conditions. This trail network is more commonly known as Lacamas.

    Sticking to the main path is a beginner ride with a couple of moderately steep inclines. Go off the main path and you will discover a network of incredibly fun trails. I haven't explored it all yet, but we had a ball.
