No Secret is a 1.3 mile, intermediate-level, entirely hand-built trail in the McCulloch Peak zone of the McDonald Forest. It is the first authorized mountain-bike-specific trail in the OSU Research Forests system.

The trail is largely sustainable bench-cut singletrack, with some narrow sections, some technical sections of roots and rocks, and a number of alternate features and jibs and pops to make things fun.

OSU has officially marked this trail as not to be ridden when travel on the trail disturbs the trail tread.

Access Info

Access the top of this trail from Skillings Connector just to the west of the 760 Rd off the peak. Access the bottom of this trail from the Contour Rd. To loop back up to the top from the bottom, either turn left on the Contour Rd to climb Skillings Rd, or turn right on the Contour Rd and then right again on the first gravel road, passing through a red-white-and-blue gate to get onto the 760 Rd that traverses the ridge back towards McCulloch Peak.

       My favorite trail in the Mac forest. Narrow singletrack with lots of roots. This trail rewards repeated riding since there are many side features that are easy to miss the first few times down.
