      The Iron Mountain Trail, in the Jefferson National Forest, is an old school back country, ridgeline trail. As can be expected the trail offers much climbing, rocky terrain and endless views. It is surrounded by a large network of side trails which opens up the possibility of many loop rides. The main mountain bike section runs from the trail town of Damascus in the west to Hurricane Mountain in the east, near the town of Troutdale.

      The last 1.8 miles at the east end is closed to bikers and horses. Riders travelling east are redirected down FS road 7411 onto Homestead Road towards Sugargrove Highway - H'way16.
