  • Jacob Hartley March 20, 2017 at 4:43 pmEscape from moscow, parkway, check yo self loop all clear as of Saturday.
  • Joe Myers March 10, 2017 at 2:54 pmRode (and walked) up from the bottom today and it wasn't long before hitting quite a lot of snow. I bailed from the trail and hiked up to the top where it's dried out. Attempted riding from the top intersection down to top of sand canyon but there is too much snow on the trail.
  • Eric Kutter November 8, 2016 at 6:54 pmOther than the fact it is crazy steep (no dropper post meant my butt was behind the saddle the whole way down), the traction is great. If you were into downhill, this would be perfect right now. On my hard tail it was just hanging on for dear life.
 

Trail Description

Check Yo Self (sometimes called Elevator Shaft) starts at the top of Horse Ridge. It’s roughly visible heading off to the West, and eventually narrows down into a something “similar” to a trail. Rocks are everywhere. After riding along the ridge for a ways, the trail heads steeply downhill on an old DH trail for a little ways, then follows more or less an old fire road that is no longer in service. This is the steepest option down the ridge, and this trail doesn’t get a lot of use, so be careful!

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.

This trail is maintained by Central Oregon Trail Alliance.
