“A flowy singletrack from Bottle Prairie Trailhead to Knebal Springs Campground.”
— Brock Warner
Either trailhead requires a $5 parking fee or a recreation pass, so be mindful of that.
This trail runs from the Bottle Prairie Trailhead in the south to the Knebal Springs Campground trailhead in the north. It can be ridden either way. Because the trail is a little more flowy than its sister trail, Knebal Springs Trail #474
, it might be favorable to ride down this one when combining the trails for the Knebal Springs Loop
Be sure to stop at Perry Point at the top of the initial climb to get in some good views of Central Oregon before you start the descent to the bottom.
Towards the bottom of this trail, the trail drops sharply into a creek crossing. This signals you're almost to the Knebal Springs Campground.
The trail crosses several forest roads, but the trail is also signed extremely well with new, easy-to-follow signs. It's hard to get lost.
