Part of Castle Rock Trail
Reviewed by: gonegator , from eugene
Summary: I ride this trail as much as I can. There is snow from the clearcut up now (December). This has a little bit of everything. Nice, gradually climbing, forested first few miles(good for beginners and even kids. When you get to the clearcut, the trail steepens and goes to doubletrack for a little bit. Cross the road and the real fun begins, this trail has some of the best switchbacks around, and its all rideable. Take a break at the top and let the fun begin.
