“One of the best high country rides in the East Cascades.”

20.0 Miles 100% Singletrack 1,436’ Ascent -2,770’ Descent 3,661’ Low 6,257’ High
Restrictions
NW Forest Pass required at Tumalo Falls trailhead
Overview
The full 20+ mile Mrazek trail gives a spectacular Oregon high country ride. The 100% singletrack ride exposes you to just about every variety of Central Oregon mountain biking terrain.

The typical start from Tumalo Falls Trailhead is a steep but gorgeous grind uphill that is well rewarded with countless miles of downhill. Don't be fooled though, it's a good aerobic push even when it's trending downhill.
Need To Know
Most riders do this as a shuttle, dropping a car at Shevlin Park TH, and starting the true ride at the Tumalo Falls TH. Heroic effort if you do this as an out and back, some might say that's just crazy.
Description
The first hour up the North Fork trail is definitely an uphill grind, but the distractions of the countless waterfalls keep you smiling. You will view Tumalo Falls, and so many other waterfalls, that it does actually become the norm. After the hill climbs, you reach Happy Valley, appropriately named. Take a right over the bridge to gain access to Mrazek trail.

Once on Mrazek proper, it is a long gradual descent through the Tumalo Creek drainage.
