“A fantastic intermediate flow trail on Mt. Bachelor
— Markk Knowles
Buy a day use lift pass and ride the Pine Marten Express lift to the Pine Martin Lodge. Hang a left off the lift and follow the signage back down the mountain.
You start the 4 mile ride on some black gravely garbage to the trail entrance where you are greeted by a few woops and a hard left bank.
This trail is all about flow with no real drops but lots of small tabletops and big banked berms. It's perfect for an intermediate ripper that wants to learn how to jump. Everything on this trail is ride-able at nearly any skill level. A DH bike is not really needed to ride this trail but the more suspension, the better. There are a few flat sections to pedal that will flatline your mojo.... other than that, this is a blast to ride.
At the end of the trail, as you approach the lift, look to the right for the entrance to a skills area to finish your run on. In this small zone there are 3 small wooden drops (1, 2 & 3 foot) side by side to choose from followed by a small jump or two, a log skinny and a teeter toter.
