Overview

Great loop for a wide variety of Bend Singletrack. Sweeping views from the Top of Mrazek as well as the way down Farewell and Tumalo creek trail. Finish it out with a decent on Whoops and it's a great day!

Description

Park your car at Phils, and start by heading up Ben's to intersection #5. Turn right here and it will pop you out on Skyliner Rd. Cross the road and go up the gravel road about 200 yards. Here you'll find a connector trail that will take you to Mrazek. The trail is on the NW corner of the gravel road intersection. You can also park ON this gravel road which will allow for an slightly shorter loop.

The connector trail spits you out on a gravel road you'll need to descend down and then cross a creek, go up and around a ridge, and then on your right you'll find the entrance to Mrazek. This is the only gravel road you'll need to ride on.

One can also do this loop from Shevlin Park.

Near the top of Mrazek, you'll find Farewell trail. This trail has some amazing old growth trees and several huge views of Tumalo ridge and Tumalo falls. Farewell actually crosses within 50 yards of Tumalo falls upper viewpoint, yet you'll be on the South side of the falls.

Once down Farewell, turn right and head about 100 yards across the bridge, and turn left onto Tumalo Creek Trail. This will take you to Skyliner Snow park. Once you get to the park, head up the trail that goes directly up from the parking lot. Skyliner trail is also an amazing trail with old growth and plenty of amazing singletrack.

At the end of Skyliner, you'll pop out at the top of Whoops. Whoops is a standard for fun, with exciting berms and jumps. Designed to be ridden fast to clear all the jumps, it can also be ridden slow, and all jumps are rollable. Sure to put a smile on your face.

At the bottom of Whoops, you'll see the entrance to Ben's trail on the other side of road 300. This will take you to Phil's TH or to intersection 5.

Great ride!

These trail connections offer a bit of everything from smooth banked turns, to chunky exposed descents. Truly fun of you like a challenge Delete
