      This is the primary local riding spot for Grants Pass and the surrounding area. It is a multi-sport use area, so the trails are shared between cyclists, hikers, runners, and horses. The area is a mixed forest, combining shady and sunny spots. Trail surface is mostly granite with virtually no rocks and just a few roots. Trails are generally smooth, although steeper sections can be rutted. The black rated trails in this area are rated so due to their steepness and rutting, not due to technical features. If you don't mind the climbing, just about every trail is rideable in both directions. Just don't look at your heart rate monitor

      Access Info:
