Shrub Steppe/Prairie Riding in Eastern Oregon.

David Porter

Overview

Good trail with some moderately difficult climbs. It's not technically difficult, but it's a good aerobic workout. There is no tree cover on these trails, so you'll be exposed to the sun and wind the entire time. Wear sunblock. It gets hot and dry in the summer, but it's a great option for spring/fall riding when other places nearby are closed due to snow.

Need to Know

This trail system is built on private land owned by Snow Road Winery. They are very supportive of MTB use on their land, so stop by their shop in nearby Echo, OR and thank them.

Description

There is a kiosk in the parking area with a trail map and other useful info. The system consists of one main loop (A Trail) that starts and finishes at the main parking area. Branching off of this loop are several other loops. All branch loops reconnect with A Trail. All of the trail intersections are well marked with signs. The trails that branch off of A Trail in the order encountered are:

Shayne's Trail, B Trail, C Trail, D Trail, Shelly's Trail, and Ivan's Trail

There are man made features on these trails that include two boardwalks approximately 2 ft wide at the narrowest point and a bridge on the C and D trails (you ride over the bridge on C Trail and under on D Trail).

Portions of the trails on the eastern side of the system (C, D, Shelly's, Ivan's, and the end of A) are very exposed and can be sketchy when it gets windy.

The terrain will vary between loose and rocky and hard packed dirt as you ride through shrub steppe and prairie, lots of sage brush and prairie grass.

It is a very fun ride. There is not a tree in sight, so be prepared for lots of sun. 13.5mi — 2h 00m
