Overview
The recently constructed Broadway Flow Trail is a great way to warm up on your visit, with a base elevation of 7,100’ to keep you cool as the valley floor heats up. If you want additionally rocky terrain in your day then jump on the singletrack trails that roam around the resort, tucking in and out of the trees and across granite lines cut into the hillsides.

Route Details
The scenic drive to Anthony Lakes Mountain Resort will get you in the mood for the terrain you’ll encounter. As you wind your way up to the lodge, the trees will thin out and the granite slabs will become more prominent, until you arrive at the parking lot at just over 7,000’. Unless you’ve coming from another high-elevation destination, don’t try to sprint out of the gate or you’ll be gasping after 60 seconds.

The lift only runs for select events so unless you’ve timed your arrival with one of those weekends, you’ll need to earn your turns on the Broadway Flow Trail. The climb up is just under two miles with a couple steep pitches to make sure you’re legs are warmed up by the time you reach the top. The effort is worth it, though, because the descent packs a lot of twists and turns as you drop 800’ through berms and rollers built to maximize momentum. Take the first lap easy and get to know the trail, then head back up for a second time to link it all together with maximum flow. At this elevation, even pumping the trail will give you a workout.

A third lap brings it all together but if you’re already feeling your legs or if you want rockier terrain in your day then jump on the XC ski routes for some granite grinding. Although they are covered with snow in the winter, in the summer these routes turn into singletrack trails that provide a good challenge with short, scenic loops around the ski area, mixing in high-alpine loam with rocky outcroppings. Add just a couple miles or see if you can ride it all for the full experience.

Riding Season
The start of the riding season is dependent on the previous winter’s snowpack but plan on early summer through fall.

      Trail was cleared for a day of lift accessed riding in early July and is all clear now.

      Periodic piles of snow blocking the flow. Passable but not at flow speeds. Probably good in a few weeks or if piles are dug out. Snow shovel anyone?

       great new flow trail at the Anthony Lakes Ski area. Great banked corners, bumps, rock ramps, wood plank bridges. This can be a very fast downhill run. I gave it 5 stars although it was a bit moondust in mid august. Next year after it settles it should be perfect.

       @James Espinoza take the gravel road to the left as you look at the lodge from the upper parking lot. The road grind is the easiest (and kind of only viable) way up.

       Anthony Lakes Broadway Flow Trail—A great flowy downhill ride!

      If you haven’t ridden the new Anthony Lakes Broadway Flow Trail, you should!

      In my opinion, this is the best downhill trail in Northeast Oregon: nice banked corners, lots of rock rollovers and launch pads, great jumps and overall nice singletrack. Trail is rideable for most skill sets—from amateur to adrenaline junky. Soils are good now but drying out fast so get after it.



      The access road to the summit from the Resort Parking Lot is a grind on a bike, but there is no shame in walking. The descent is worth the climb. Also, shuttling is popular, but requires an SUV or bigger, with good ground clearance.



      Please give SPECIAL THANKS TO:



      LANCE COLBURN, BMSTC for managing the construction and budget for this trail, and dealing with the many headaches associated with its construction—nothing was easy. Thanks Lance!



      PETER JOHSON, Anthony Lakes, for working directly, on a day to day basis, with the contactor and land manager, the USFS. Thanks Peter!

       Drove almost to the top (we have a Tundra) on Weds, the last little bit is only open to resort vehicles but the Anthony Lakes website says they shuttle Fri-Sun. It's a series of long switchbacks, not very technical, with a couple of bridges thrown in the mix. If you've got a ride up, do it a couple of times.
