Trail 2 at Cline Butte is accessed by climbing the dirt road from Cline Falls Rd. to the summit of the buttes. You can also climb up the XC trail for a more single-track route.
A legitimate double-black diamond, Trail 2 is best suited to a big bike and a big helmet. The trail drops down a narrow gorge to the point where it intersects Trail 1. It includes steep terrain, mandatory rock drops, technical sections, and heavy fines for failure.
At the junction with Trail 1, the main line includes a series of big doubles and dirt jumping skills are required.
Even though it’s short – pound-for-pound – it’s safe to say that Trail 2 is the heaviest DH mountain biking trail in Central Oregon.
Here’s a sick video of Cam McCaul ripping the Trail 2 jumps (and some other Bend Trails).
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.
