  • Nat Chotechuang May 23, 2017 at 8:28 pmWere you able to hop onto Olallie from NF 1993 then ride down to O'Leary?
  • Adam Bucklin May 11, 2017 at 6:13 pmSnow line at 4,900' as of May 7, 2017. Or the forest service road just before O'leary trail intersection.
  • Heidi H-P September 8, 2016 at 10:43 amAs FS road is closed 3 miles up, I opted for the Olallie trail uphill instead. What a stiff climb! However, as it is not a technical uphill, one can make great friends with one's granny and spin away, upward into the clouds. Olallie was damp and sticky yesterday and steap as it is, I rarely had to get off my bike. It seems to be the trail less traveled, so enjoy!
  • Rob Dorshorst August 20, 2016 at 6:44 pmFR 1993 above Ollalie TH has 1 big rock slide, 1 medium rock slide and 3 smaller ones to scramble over. Recommend Ollalie single track climb instead if you plan on looping to O'Leary, Castle Rock and King Castle. Otherwise the tread is good, not any where near the dust Bend has currently.
  • Natalie Herse June 27, 2016 at 8:51 pmThe big tree has been cut out but there are still a fair amount of smaller trees down. Good excuse for stopping to take a breath and get an upper body workout. Otherwise the tread is perfect.
  • Jeff Johnston June 14, 2016 at 9:34 amWe rode Ollalie to the O'Leary junction then continued on O'Leary/Castle Rock/King's Castle 6/11/16. One big giant tree laying right down the middle of the trail right after you get on the Ollalie singletrack post road climb, but actually kind of fun to walk down the tree. Otherwise, just a handful of trees down, but not enough to ruin the overall flow of the ride.
 

Trail Description

Beginning at Olallie North Trailhead, Olallie Trail #3529 starts a climb up a steep ridge to the north of King Creek. The trail travels through a coniferous rainforest, occasionally breaking out of the forest onto rock outcroppings and madrone groves. The trail travels southeast, climbing the ridge, then winding along the ridge between peaks and mountains before reaching Forest Road 1993 and Pat Saddle Trailhead.

The trail continues south from Pat Saddle Trailhead, immediately entering the Three Sisters Wilderness and following a ridge around to the base of Olallie Mountain. The trail continues downhill past Olallie Mountain along the northeast edge of Olallie Meadow and through Bear Flat. Bearing south, the trail passes the upper reaches of French Pete Creek and wraps up and around to a ridge over the South Fork McKenzie River drainage. The trail then drops steeply down the ridge along a tributary of the South Fork, leveling out before reaching its terminus at South Fork McKenzie Trail #3327 near Olallie South Trailhead.
