“One of the best one-way rides off of Cascade Lakes Highway to town”— Katy Ryan
Electric Mountain Bikes Unknown
After gaining Swede Ridge, the trail has a short section of steeper downhill, then it's totally easy with gorgeous views peeking out on the North side. A short side hike at the intersection of Swede Ridge and Sector 16 trail leads you to the Swampy Shelter, more great views toward Tumalo.
Sector 16 is a curvy, downhill, rooted section of the ride. It goes up and down, eventually leading you to the Shooting Star Shelter, one of the most remote in the area.
Next, you'll ride Upper Whoops which is a fast and fun blue run that leads you to the Lower Whoops trail.
Lower Whoops is one of the local favorites, it has plenty of table tops, along with an assortment of features. This is a one-way (downhill) trail, and you'll soon see why.
The end of Lower Whoops feeds onto to road NF-300. Head to the right on the road until Phil's trail begins to left. Phil's will take you the remaining way to the trailhead.
The entire ride is easy to find, and there are many other variations that bring you back to town, just look at the map. Also, Cog Wild has shuttles that drop you at Swampy or other locations, otherwise you're doing your own car shuttle.
