Trail Reports

  • Marc Fortier October 21, 2018 at 9:26 pmTrail's in the best shape I've ever seen. Only 1 log down on the 1-mile approach trail (which I removed), and the entire, ripping descent was clear. Someone worked around 2 of the problematic root balls as well. Great old school narrow bench trail, descending 2500 vf in 4.5 miles. I see no sign indicating the approach trail at the top is closed to bikes (nor any signs at all:). But if you had to walk it, just a 1 mile slight uphill.
 

Trail Description

Frissell Trail is located just North of the famous McKenzie River Trail and offers some amazing views of the McKenzie River Valley below. The upper end of the trail ends at the boundary of the HJ Andrew Experimental Forest which is basically treated as Wilderness and closed to bikes. Expect a steep and narrow trail.
