Features -none-

Family Friendly A great, progressive trail system where adults can keep an eye on their children and for all types of bicycles--great practice area with fun trail features, too.

Please respect those who donated time and/or money to construct these trails and who continue to maintain this trail—do not ride this trail if leaving tracks in soft soils or muddy soils. High speed, downhill mountain bike traffic—not recommended for equestrians.

Overview

This area of the trail system is great for progression of all ages and abilities--practice cornering, jumping, braking--or race your buddies down the slalom section. All three trails can be optionally looped back to the starting point so it's easy to keep track of all members of your party.

Need to Know

Spend the day--bring snacks, drinks, and your camera to document those great moments. There are some big jumps/table tops for photo moments (these can be rolled so are not too scary). Picnic tables and restrooms available--no garbage service so pack it in and pack it out. Please pick up after your dog and horse.

Description

Access is from Owsley Canyon Trailhead—the trail system starts from the east end of a parking lot behind the restrooms. There is good parking with picnic tables and gentle slopes.

The tread is moderately wide singletrack, with cleared “fall zones,” which can be ridden moderately fast to fast. Expect grade reversals, jumps, table tops, launch pads, a pump section, skinnies, bermed hip rides, and rock roll-overs.

Teething Trail is less technical and a shorter loop than Honor Roll, which is a less technical and shorter loop than Parent Trap Trail, which is the longest and most technical (two-mile loop). The trail is suitable for strider bikes, BMX bikes, mountain bikes, hikers/runners, and those towing the tots.

Teething Trail is a net descent for strider riders with a loop back on a gravel-surfaced doubletrack to the starting point, which parallels the trail so it's easy to keep track of the kids. Honor Roll parallels Teething Trail, which loops back to the starting point. Parent Trap parallels Honor Roll for about a half mile before making a longer loop back to the trailhead.

History & Background

Seed money for these trails was donated from Cycle Oregon. The balance of funding came from local donors. Special thanks to Cycle Oregon!
