Trail Reports

  • Zach Blickman May 20, 2017 at 10:13 pmNot too bumpy, wildflowers are out. This is a great +/fatbike ride!
  • Brennan Morrow May 1, 2017 at 6:26 amConditions Perfect. Cattle Chop is much less now. Be aware there is a Horse event May 5th 6th 7th on gray butte, not a good weekend to ride .
  • Brennan Morrow April 7, 2017 at 8:32 pmConditions good. Cattle chopped up the trail a bit last year when muddy, so there are some speed bumps present.
  • Brennan Morrow November 5, 2016 at 4:07 pmCattle have hit the trail in muddy conditions making trail very choppy for about 50% of trail
  • Erik Santner October 22, 2016 at 7:59 pmDid you enjoy the Cole loop? We took that south side that one time....how is the rest?
  • Brennan Morrow October 22, 2016 at 12:57 pmDirt is perfect! Cow are gone. No mud. Trail is mostly packed smooth like a race track.
  • Brent Edens April 11, 2016 at 7:06 amSuch a good descent in the clockwise direction! One on the most beautiful around. Getting a bit on the dry side. There are a couple of short sandy sections and a bit of horse chunder, but totally worth getting on!
 

Trail Description

Cole Loop is an optional loop which you can add to your ride around Grey Butte. It was historically a horse trail, but certain times of the year — winter and spring — it’s in good shape for mountain biking.
