E-bikes NOT allowed on K.G.B.
K.G.B. stands for Kent’s Get Back. Named after Kent Howes. It runs from Kent’s trail at the top of the elevator shaft down to the flaming chicken at the Phil’s intersection. From there it heads past Grand Slam/Expressway, over to the Marvin’s Garden trail. If you cross Marvin’s the trail winds down the hill and spits you out on Skyline Ranch Rd. It’s a good trail to use when exiting Phil’s back to town. Many Cog Wild trips end on this stretch. The trail has a few nice technical sections and a steep climb near Marvin’s with tight switchbacks (“Heartbreak Hill” on Strava). At the top of the climb, on a clear day, you’ll have a nice view of the Cascade Range and Mt. Jefferson.
This trail is maintained by Central Oregon Trail Alliance.
