Part of the 28 legal miles of mountain biking in Forest Park. It proves the problem between hikers and bikers still exist. Hikers will cry if you ride anything else in Forest Park. Trust me, you will see trails everywhere!!!!! But ALL are gonna lead to a confrontation with a hiker, they are walking angry. Its the only thing to ride if your looking for an after work ride in the Portland Metro Area. Continue onto Rd #9 if your looking for a loop down to Hwy30 and back under the St Johns Bridge. Lots of bus stops to catch a ride back downtown. Great trail for cyclocross training or a gravel grind.

Access Info

Enter Trailhead from NW Thurman, very close to Fat Tire Farm bike shop.
