Description

Typically open late spring through fall. Check to see if the trail has been cleared of trees before departing. Lastly, only a fool would ride this west-to-east.
A critical part of the Olallie Ridge Epic, the O'Leary Ridge Trail takes you deep, deep into the temperate coniferous forest of the Cascade Mountains. A stunning variety of wildflowers hug the narrow singletrack, with beargrass and shrubs hiding a never-ending parade of rocks and roots.

This trail is no stroll in the park; getting out there (and back) takes skill, fitness, a full pack, and the ability to keep one's cool when you realize a bad fall could mean a night in the woods. Your reward is sublime singletrack, mountain views, and the tingle in the base of your skull that comes with being in the thick of a backcountry ride.

The trail is best accessed via Trail #3549 (Olallie Trail) and ridden east-to-west, as the descent on the west end drops out from beneath you like you've just ridden off a cliff.
