Trail (#756) begins just off the Timberline Lodge parking area. The fun begins immediately and doesn't end until you ride off the trail. 5.5 miles in you come to a major, well marked, intersection of several trails. You can ride Crosstown Trail (#755) east to Government Camp or swing west (right) and hit a section that will make an old man feel like he's in love again. Crosstown Trail ties into Pioneer Bridle Trail for extended trip through the woods along Highway 26 (you cross it once). The final 3 miles is a drag strip, where you fly through the woods. Trail ends at Tollgate CG; a half mile from the bus stop at Rhododendron. Use the bus (Mt.Hood Express.com for schedule). It is convenient and they pull a bike trailer..... Best $2 I've ever spent. My only question is "why haven't I ridden here before."
