Description

Upper Oregon Gulch, known locally as Edge of the World Trail, is not for the feint of heart. It starts off of Forest Service Road 168, and ascends incredibly steeply right from the gun. Shortly after, Edge of the World lives up to its namesake, and drops precipitously for the next 3 miles. Be ready for loose, rocky, and sometimes rooted terrain to follow you all the way down this beast of a descent. It's all rideable, but you'll want to be a confident descender to tackle this one.

It's worth it however, as the views from this trail of the nearby Sawtooth Mountains are incredible. Don't get too distracted by these vistas and stay on the trail as it ducks in and out of the woods through the arid high country.

The final two sections of this trail should be approached with care as they are some of the steepest and most technical on the route. Upper Oregon Gulch terminates at the intersection with Oregon - Fox Connector. Turn left here to start Lower Oregon Gulch, or turn right for the Oregon - Fox Connector.

Once you get into the middle section of Oregon Gulch, the terrain mellows out and gets super fast!

It's called "Edge of the World" for a reason ... amazing views everywhere!
