Please don’t ride muddy trails. This makes a LOT more work for COTA volunteers who would rather be building new trails, than fixing your ruts.

Trail Reports

  • Brendan Leary May 28, 2017 at 8:01 pmA bit shocked for the second time, past the green gate at the Phils parking lot, which is open, multiple campers, is this a new policy. Just would hate to see the garbage we see farther up on Bens Why is that gate chained open?
  • Shane DeMars March 19, 2017 at 9:10 amCompletely dry from Phils to KGB.
  • Eric Kutter March 17, 2017 at 5:47 pmJust a couple tiny patches of snow. Virtually no mud this afternoon. I'd recommend waiting until afternoon if it gets near freezing over night.
  • Alex Marganski December 28, 2016 at 3:15 pmwas able to make it up to the marvins/kgb intersection. pretty clear path before the hill and then it got a little tough but it was all ridable except one snow drift.
  • Robert Rekward November 26, 2016 at 3:28 pmStarting to get a little muddy in the low spots. Not really any puddles — drains are working great...
  • Mike Schmeiske April 15, 2016 at 1:46 pmThanks for the info!
  • Joe Myers April 15, 2016 at 1:21 pmStarting today (Friday 4/15) at 5:00, Marvin’s Garden (and the Lair) will be open for the summer. COD near tetherow also open so you can connect to river trail.
 

Trail Description

Marvin’s Garden connects Phil’s trail heading all the way south to the C.O.D. trail near Century Drive. Marvin’s has a lot of nice minimally berm’d corners, rock options, and some views overlooking Tetherow. There’s also a snake-like pit that is an option called the Otter Slide (check out the photo on this page).

This trail is maintained by Central Oregon Trail Alliance.
