Trail Reports

  • Joe Myers June 17, 2017 at 12:42 pmrob and bruce finished clearing D today and did some maintenence
  • Ryan Pedersen June 4, 2017 at 8:58 pmJust a couple trees still down but don't let that stop you. The larger one is near the end of the lolipop stick and requires a dismount climb over unless your last name is MacAskill. The other one is in the snake section and can somewhat be ridden around although the soil at the trees base is super sketchy.
  • Alex Marganski May 23, 2017 at 4:14 pmclear of snow, about a dozen trees down, fun slippery pine needles!
  • Marc Fortier November 4, 2016 at 2:10 pmAnd another smaller tree a little bit after you start the CW loop. If you like floating over a carpet of pine needles, this is your trail!
  • Natalie Herse October 23, 2016 at 8:05 pmOne big tree down about a mile from the start (from Tyler's). The tread is perfect.
  • Rob Weston May 28, 2016 at 8:14 amDuodenum is completely clear and ready to ride, fresh tread!
  • Joe Myers May 24, 2016 at 2:35 pmTrail is clear of trees and branches. Needs a little work but rideable per COTA
 

Trail Description

The Duodenum is a lollypop out-and-back ride off of Tyler’s Traverse with an intestine-like hillside on the loop portion. 20 or so heavily banked corners will test your slalom skills.

The singletrack trail which connects to Tyler’s is new as of 2015, as is the up-route (an old road conversion) if you ride the loop clockwise.

The trail is 2 way trail the entire way — yet the loop portion is most often ridden clockwise.

This trail is maintained by Central Oregon Trail Alliance.
