Perimeter Trail Details
Riding areaSilver Falls State Park
Land ManagerOregon Parks and Recreation
The original mountain bike trail in Silver Falls State Park, these days the Catamount Trail sees more action. The Perimeter Trail was built as a hiking trail first, and it shows. That doesn't mean it isn't worth the ride; it's just a bit more old-school than its newer cousin.
Don't expect banked corners. Do expect hard packed dirt, tight switchbacks, and a fast descent when heading back to the trailhead. Unless it's raining, then expect a mud bath. This is Western Oregon, after all.
Start at the North Falls trailhead in Silver Falls State Park. From the trailhead, cross the North Fork of Silver Creek via footbridge. Take a right after the footbridge and go through the tunnel. You'll see the signs for the Perimeter Trail. Head into the woods of Douglas-fir, hemlock, western swordsfern, and maple.
