“One of the top rides in Oakridge, the views from Moon Point and singletrack descent are top notch.”— Anthony Harasimowicz
After approximately nine miles, turn right on FR 439 and continue on the main road. Just past the 10-mile mark, turn right at the overgrown entrance to Moon Point aka Moon Point Trail #3688. After a mile or so of mild climbing, turn right at the intersection with the Young's Rock Trail #3685 to work out to Moon Point for dizzying views of the expansive Willamette National Forest to the west. The last little bit is fairly rugged, so plan on a bit of hiking.
Head back to the intersection and then turn right on Young's Rock Trail #3685 for an all-encompassing descent that has switchbacks, open meadows, exposed singletrack, ridge views, and fast, smooth sections of trail that will have you grinning ear to ear. Be sure to take in the amazing views of the sheer face of Youngs Rock as you cruise by from far below and navigate a short scree section. Continuing down the balance of the trail crossing a few dirt roads and then through a small clearing where the trail is quite steep at times. A winding segment takes you back into the forest along the last mile before ending back at FR 21. Just follow the road west, back to the start of the ride.
