Fast, fun descent with a mixture of bench-cut singletrack with typical Oakridge switchbacks at the top and a quick out-and-back to a view plateau atop Youngs Rock. After passing through some rocks and scree on the backside of another outcropping, you will transition onto a ridge before taking a wide open fast descent through rough trail in a burned section of the forest.

       This trail is out there, but totally worth it. One of the most fun descents in Oakridge. Long, fast, and rowdy.

       Super fun trail! A must when visiting, I figure there are 3 must do trails: Eola, Larison and Young’s. There’s a nice contrast between the lush turns up top and the dry roughness of the bottom.

       Em oh oh en - that spells Young's Rock. This trail definitely rates a black diamond in places. Super fun, worth the drive.

       Your experience will depend a lot on your equipment- really good brakes are essential and good suspension at well as there are sustained rough steep decent that will tax your grip. I wouldn't call it black diamond from a technical standpoint, but deff from a fatigue one.
