Trail Description

Similar to a road scene in Mad Max, this old, cracked highway (also called the ODOT Chicane) heads toward the top of the ridge at an easy pace. Good trail to take with friends if you want to relax a little and chat along the way. Near the end look for the Has No Horse trail heading up the ridge on the right.

Another less common route would be to ride to the end of this road, pop across the highway, and find a trail that heads down into Dry River Canyon.

This is primarily a winter riding area due to the sandy soils. Winter rain and snow doesn’t hit this area as hard, and trails are often prime in the winter months.

This trail is maintained by Central Oregon Trail Alliance.
