Trail Reports

  • Mark Campbell March 11, 2017 at 11:25 amyes, trail #1and #2 are riding well, but PLEASE do not push up these trails, downhill traffic conflict is high..especially on weekends.... power line or road option is best. Thanks
  • Joe Myers March 2, 2017 at 7:20 pmRiding great. Thanks to ES for showing me the trail at the top which skirts the fence. Saved me from walking snow a second time.
  • Joe Myers February 20, 2017 at 3:47 pmLaps are possible using the road now. Both trail 1 and 2 are riding well.
  • Travis Holman February 15, 2017 at 9:02 amTrail #1 itself is great, accessing it from pretty much any direction is a hassle. Currently the best option is probably either hiking up the steep power line road, or just up the trail. Snow still covering most of the road up on the backside (impassable for a 4WD pickup).
  • Kevin Donnelly February 29, 2016 at 9:09 amPretty dried out and loose, but still riding good overall.
  • Robert Rekward January 8, 2016 at 5:05 pmMountain biked Trail 1 and it was pretty good. The road climb suuuuuucked (afternoon). Mushy sticky sand. Hit before it thaws. North side of the buttes still have lots of snow patches.
 

Trail Description

Trail 1 at Cline Butte is accessed by climbing the forest road from Cline Falls Rd. to the summit of the tallest (southernmost) butte. You can also climb up the XC trail for a more single-track route to the junction.

Starting at the summit, the trail quickly drops over 700′ in under a mile. The turns are steep, loose, and most include a black-diamond garden of sharp rocks that has to be negotiated (or walked) — a dropper post is probably mandatory unless you’re some kind of psycho. Knee pads are good idea too.

Once you cross Trail 2 (which is an option from here if you like big dirt-jump doubles) you can fly down some single and double track back to the forest road for another lap.

This is primarily a winter riding area due to the sandy soils. Winter rain and snow doesn’t hit this area as hard, and trails are often prime in the winter months.
