Super trail system, that this track just begins to explore.

Joseph Snook

Overview

One of the best trail systems I've ridden so far in the Rogue Valley area. Nicely packed DG surface, ranging from heavily wooded to open veiws. Ranges from very easy to difficult tracks, and if you are into the later, do not miss the Bridges loop. Watch out for both hikers and horse riders; they have the right of way.
Family Friendly: Great trails for the family.
Dogs: Leashed

Description

Wooded to start out with, as you approach the tops of the Cathedral Hills, you start to get views out to Grants Pass and to the west, depending on where you are. The trail is flowy for the most part, smooth DG surface ranging from blue diamond hiking trails to black diamond woopiededoos through canyons, very well maintained. Some sections will get your blood pumping, especially the downhhill through the Bridges section, flowing down the sides of a narrow, heavily wooded canyon; essentially a very large pipe with trees and foot bridges. There are some rather large jumps in places which I can personally testify to hurting if you don't do them right. This is a very popular destination for the local community of equestrians and hikers, often with children, so please go out of your way to be courteous and safe. Parts of the trail are suitable for all, with more difficult trails for the advanced rider. Overall, a great trail system in close proximity to food, lodging and hospitals.

I stayed mainly main trails in the system but did go down the Bridges Trail. What a blast but not for everyone. Cant wait to explore more trails. 5mi

Many options here. Take a look at the map at Espy Road before you head out if you're unfamiliar with the area.
