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.

    Such 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!
