Trail UsageBiking Primary
SeasonMainly late spring (April) to fall (early November), but can be ridden year round.
This is an awesome cross country trail, with lots of roots and rocks and some faster downhill sections, along with a few steeper climbs. Punchy climbs await the most skilled.
It can be ridden in both directions, but most riders prefer a clockwise direction (if riding clockwise, there's a short climb out on a dirt road at the end that's no fun riding down). The loop follows the Wilson Wagon Trail (a historic trail) and the Gravelle Brothers Trail to make the loop.
Parts of the trail are a bit overgrown with vegetation, and its muddy after lots of rain and riders, but the drainage is much improved from what it was before 2010 (or so).
It's not a long nor tough ride, but for a longer ride this can be combined with a loop around Gale's Creek - the combined ride can be done as a figure 8, and thus avoids the dirt road that's part of the loop here. Adding the Storey Creek trail is another option.
Access the trail head via by driving past Banks, Oregon on HWY6 heading west. Follow the signs to Brown's Camp. Once you turn off the highway and drive up, take the first left 80 yards from the highway and drive 150 yards to the kiosk on your right, trailhead is right behind the restroom/kiosk area. Very stealthy.

|Exposed parts of the trail are muddy. The majority of the trail is dry but some patches with ice and frozen mud/dirt are prevalent. Ride with caution|

|It was great a week ago. The brush is still not quite over grown so you can see the trail. There were quite a few groups of hikers on the trail...|
