27.2 miles with Jeff. EPIC ride through old growth rain forest along McKenzie River.
Jun 18, 2018
Conditions are great, little wet in spots, and lots of tacky dirt & massive trees!
Jun 9, 2018
Very wet ride, made it all the more memetable
Sep 3, 2017
Lava fields, waterfalls, and amazing scenery!
Jul 27, 2017
Beautiful..and a cold river to soak in as well as hot springs. We booked our shuttle with horse creek and we're happy to cool down on the pump track
Jul 24, 2017
First-timer; highly technical first section, but could be skipped and then flows for ~15 miles, albeit too many bridges slow you down!
Jul 21, 2017
Great trail. A few technical sections we had to walk the bike, but well worth it.One five mile section had a ton of hikers. Great endurance ride!

Hydrate responsibly and avoid the trunk
Jun 25, 2017
Very unridable trail...better off suited for hikers. Upper section very dangerous w lava rock which is extremely sharp. Lower full of hikers
May 20, 2017
200meters of snow (easily walkable) & ~4 puddles all within 2miles of Clear Lake. One more week of clear weather and it should all be dry.

Not the downhill run that it looks like. Over pretty good
Oct 10, 2016
Rainy and muddy but still gorgeous!
Oct 2, 2016
Out to Trail Bridge Reservoir and back.
Sep 13, 2016
Endless single tracks! Amazing trail with awesome views
Sep 3, 2016
A portion of the trail around blue pool is closed due to a fire. At Carmen Reservoir we took the highway down to trail bridge and got back on the MRT.
Aug 15, 2016
There was a fire near Blue Pool which forced about 6 miles of road, starting just after the falls and down to the hydro plant. Great ride regardless.
Jul 3, 2016
Started at Trail Bridge and went down to Paradise Campground

First time enjoying this classic Oregon mt. bike experience:
Shuttled to the "top" via McKenzie River Mountain Resort (great guys) and rode "down"...
Oct 31, 2015
Really a bit of a slog - not enough flow - wouldn't do it again
Sep 5, 2015
Really great ride, but about 30 minutes too long.
Aug 19, 2015
Took it slow'n'easy. First half was super fun and challenging. The second half was flowy and fun, but got a little boring. Didn't bring enough water.
Aug 8, 2015
I recorded 981' of elevation gain, more climbing than I expected.
Jul 28, 2015
Watch out for ground nest of yellow jackets at koosah falls overview! Left side of trail.
Jul 2, 2015
with Donna Matthews and Sue Niezgoda as our shuttle. 104F. ran out of water!
Jun 20, 2015
forgot keys for spotted car and had to ride back to start and do - over. We took the other side of the lake and everyone who didn't was frustrated
Aug 16, 2014
Beautiful ride. East side of Clear Lake was very technical.
Jul 24, 2014
trail has some very technical areas. super fun and flowy singletrack too. 20 miles of the trail is super easy, the other 5 is techy and difficult
May 20, 2014
Fun ride. Not very steep. Only a couple of technical section - mostly intermediate. Good flow, scenic, fun, and just keeps going and going.
Oct 5, 2013
Top section was the best part, definitely Advanced. Didn't ride thru the lava bed around clear lake, next time for sure. The last 15 miles or so fun
Oct 5, 2013
Took west side of Clear Lake. Road a few extra miles through a campground.
Sep 18, 2013
Started at the Tamolic Falls trailhead. This was day 2 to finish the trail. The lower end was much more flowing... This is what I expected from t...

This trail is definitely a black diamond trail. A couple of intermediate riders were in over our heads. Not to turn anyone off, but expect an exc...
