E-bikes NOT allowed on Farewell
The Farewell Trail is a ripping descent from Mrazek down to Tumalo Falls parking area. Most riders will park at the Skyline Sno Park since Tumalo Falls is often crowded with cars, especially during the busy tourist season. Note that parking at Tumalo Falls requires a Northwest Forest Pass (or you can pay at the kiosk).
Farewell is similar to Southfork in terms of elevation loss dropping over 1200′ in 3 fast miles, but it gets a lot less use since there’s no shuttle option.
Despite the downhill nature of the trail, Farewell is a 2-way trail – and you will see both hikers and bikers climbing Farewell. Keep your speed and riding in control.
Epic views of the cascades, steep terrain, rocky technical sections, loose shale lines and tight switchbacks mark this amazing trail. It’s 2-way trail, but few people ride up. There are some great viewpoints along the way and it’s become the go to photo backdrop for Bend mountain biking.
This trail is maintained by Central Oregon Trail Alliance.
