Lower Storm King starts at it’s lowest point at Forest Road 41 and soon crosses the new Catch and Release trail within the first 100 yards. The upper end the trail crosses Century Drive a few hundred yards East of the Green Gate trailhead where it becomes Upper Storm King.
Storm King is a nice climbing route from Road 41 that never gets too steep, but lots of riders will shuttle from Wanoga via Tiddlywinks or Funner and ride down Storm King to their car, or back to town. There is a key intersection with Funner and Tiddly with a large rock outcropping you can’t miss.
Heading down Lower Storm King to Rd 41, there’s only one short climb just after the Funner/Tiddly intersection before you reach a fast and twisty downhill section. Just before you get to Road 41 there are a series of small (and optional) table tops and doubles where you can catch a little air-time and just after Catch and Release is a nice G-out which adds to the fun factor.
Storm King was named in honor of the Prineville Hotshots who lost their lives on Storm King Mountain in Colorado in 1994. The trail was built by Leighton White.
This trail is maintained by Central Oregon Trail Alliance.
