Mountain Biking South Willamette

#157 of 301 mountain bike trails in Oregon

This singletrack trail is about 7 miles long and runs along the south side of the Willamette river. However, it doesn't run directly along the river/reservoir, but instead climbs up and down the foothills of the surrounding mountains.

Beware that some of these trails are rather muddy during the wet season here, and that the forest service requests that riders not use them during these times.
An excellent map (Oakridge Area MTB Trail Map) complete with suggested rides is available through local bike shops or on-line. Shuttle rides to the upper trailheads are also available in nearby Oakridge.

    When I rode it, this trail was horribly overgrown and out of use. I could barely see the trail at times, and was constantly crashing through undergrowth that was overhanging the trail. Spots of the singletrack itself needed repair work too. If this trail was cleared, I might rate it three stars, but based on my experience the other day even two stars feels generous.

    I have ridden this trail many times over the years. It's a great trail with a little bit of everything. It's generally intermediate as far as technicality and physicallity go. There are some moderately strenuous climbs with their corresponding downhill runs which are mostly smooth and kind of fast. There are a number of water crossings, some obstacles, and some rough and/or muddy areas. Overall, it's a great ride in a beautiful conifer forest setting, with lots of options for extending the ride.
