Trail Reports

  • Tom Lomax July 28, 2017 at 8:48 amTrail is cleared from Dutchman to intersection with Flagline which is closed until 8/15.
  • Gary Reynolds July 21, 2017 at 2:08 pm12 deadfall across trail in first mile, one 3 or 4 foot diameter tree across trail at about mile 2.
  • Tom Lomax July 17, 2017 at 7:57 pmHi Kerry. Thanks for posting report. I am trails steward for that piece and sounds like there is some work to do. Snow is going pretty quick up high. Have fun out there.
  • Kerry Witterschein July 16, 2017 at 1:12 pmRan from Dutchman out Flagline Access today. 3-4 large ish trees down and 2-3 smaller ones within first 2 miles. First mile is good then hit small snowpatches every so often. Turned back at Flagline junction 2 miles out. At that Left turn away from Flagline within 50 meters you hit massive down trees and 4 feet of hard snow. Its melting though, all you hear is water flowing underneath. Maybe 2 weeks.
  • Zach Blickman November 5, 2016 at 9:19 pmStruggled through lots of snow and finally made it to Flagline, but lost the trail and had to turn back. Last ride of the season?
  • Natalie Herse October 11, 2016 at 8:25 pmNo more snow. No mud. It's perfect.
  • Tristan S October 9, 2016 at 6:20 pmGood amount of snow on the ground on flagline access. It was a bit of a mess today. A good amount of walking was necessary today, throughout the access trail to the top of the climb. Barring some serious warm spells, I'm not sure flagline will be easily accessible again this year.
 

Trail Description

The Flagline Access trail takes you from the Dutchman Flat snow park to both Upper Flagline and Middle Flagline for some amazing high alpine goodness. Flagline Access is usually cleared mid to late July of both snow and deadfall, and is one of the most scenic in the area. The old growth forest is a thing of beauty, and you have time to enjoy it as you will be climbing some pretty steep grades on your way to the other alpine trails.

This trail is maintained by Central Oregon Trail Alliance.
