Trail Description
About this trail
Currently, 3 loops of varying difficulty amounting to 14 miles of riding. Loops are all beginner to intermediate in difficulty. Loops are stacked, so it's easy to shorten or lengthen your ride as needed.

Avalanche is the longest and most difficult trail with few technical features. Punchy climbs.

Explorer is more open and flowier than Avalanche, but still very XC.

The Mill trails are new-school flow trails with lots of jumps and berms. Jumps are mainly tabletops, but the few that aren't are rollable.

Trails are directional. Sun/M/W/F: CW or left; T/T/Sat: CCW or right.

Room to expand on the north side of the river will probably produce one last loop. Future plans also include connecting these trails to Blankets Creek for over 30 miles of continuous singletrack riding.

Night riding allowed, but park closes at 11pm.

Review: Just rode out here for the first time today. 2 words - awesome and FUN. I met some guys there and we rode Explorer first. This trail has combinations that exist on all the systems - short climbs followed by really fun downhills. Afterwards we did the Mill. It was hard to imagine the trail could get more fun but it did. The Mill reminds me a lot of Thompson Loop at Tsali. I didn't have time to do Avalanche but definitely going to ride out here again - soon. Excellent trail design and rides more like rollercoaster than a mt bike trail.

Review: Love these trails. Ride Avalanche if you want to "work". It's not too bad, but it is the "toughest" out of the 3 areas. Explorer is pretty fun with a couple slightly technical spots, but mostly simple stuff. The Mill is super flowy with lots of bermed turns, but is really most fun on Tues/Thurs/Sat (although Turbine is a single direction trail). Parking is a bit nuts there now, as the park has become very popular for kayaking, SUP, hikers, and MTB. There is an auxiliary/overflow lot up the hill from the park that I've never seen completely full.

Review: The trails are short with good flows. Nothing too hard. Worth doing if you add Blankets & Big Creek into a day's riding

Review: I frickin' love these trails. Often I go here over nearby Blankets Creek. The flow trails on the north side of the river (Turbine, Powerhouse, and Raceway) are well built and have some fun jumps. It's a nice change of pace from the rootier stuff I normally ride. I also really like the Explorer trail and it seems to be less-trafficked. Not that I've had any issues on the other trails. I'm not a big fan of the Avalanche trail, mostly because it's tough! There doesn't seem to be much pay off for all the climbing. It's not a bad trail, but I go to Rope Mill to have fun not punish myself. I can do that on other trails.

Review: Rode here for the first time last week. Nice trails. Explorer loop is more old school singletrack. Raceway, powerhouse, and turbine are smooth flow trails with lots of berms and a few jumps, but nothing too severe. Avalanche is a little steeper with a couple decent climbs, but nothing too severe. Nothing too tight or technical on any of the loops but pretty fun.

Review: The Raceway trail combined with Powerhouse is possibly one of the best trail loops I've ridden to date. The flow is indescribable as are the switchbacks and jumps. I'll be back and I already cannot wait for my next visit. HIGHLY recommend this trail. You won't regret making time for this MTB trail in the NW corridor vicinity.
