  • Ross Flavel May 27, 2018 at 12:16 pmDid it yesterday (5/26/18) via Bugaboo Ridge. Nice w/few blowdowns, but did clear many branches. Some patches of snow, a few in the 20-40 yard range, some sloped. Don't be deterred - first snow gives way to dry & clear. Same with initial patch half way up the turn off to the summit. No "postholing". Doggie water half way up.
 

Trail Description

Bachelor Mountain Trail traverses (you guessed it) Bachelor Mountain. It’s not a massive mountain by any means, but it’s a difficult ridge traverse with a lot of rock and exposure. This is one of the least bike-friendly rides in the OCC area with a great 360 degree summit view. There are good views along most of the trail due to the lack of tree cover.

This trail was in the beginning a part of the Oregon Timber Trail. Yet after some OTTA pioneers rode through in the Summer of 2017 with full bike setups, they decided it was a little too much for bike packing. Bachelor Mountain connects to Bugaboo Ridge Trail about half-way up the ridge. Daniel Sharp has graciously provided the photos of the trail below.
