Snow is mostly packed down from use and is rideable on a fat bike. Be mindful of icy spots.

Trail Reports

  • Siobhan McNulty December 24, 2017 at 4:48 pmChristmas Eve fatbike ride on packed snow = outstanding conditions. Great going up and amazing going down due to grippy snow.
  • Robert Rekward December 22, 2017 at 9:16 pmClimbed Pinedrops today on the fattie. 100% awesome.
  • Joe Myers November 25, 2017 at 10:15 amPinedrops was never a planned or official trail, so once it got into that phase it needed to get re-routed to avoid some important areas or something.
  • Brent Edens November 25, 2017 at 8:16 amTrail clear to the top (and well beyond!) Out of curiosity, why the re-route?
  • Patrecia Hedges November 18, 2017 at 3:42 pmWell packed today. Could be ridden with a regular MTB.
  • Natalie Herse November 15, 2017 at 6:33 pmHero dirt to start then transitioned to grippy, crusty snow tread as I climbed higher. Really sweet, no mud.
  • Mike Spencer November 9, 2017 at 4:22 pmSlushy & puddles on upper/old section, new lower section mostly packed snow - probably snow melt is soaking through better there.
 

Trail Description

Pinedrops is mainly used as a climbing trail which leads to the top of Lower Whoops, The East end of the trail is located about 50 yards South of lower Whoops along road 300. The trail winds through large Ponderosa Pines and is a nice singletrack alternative to the road 310 fire road climb. It’s also fun to ride down if you aren’t into the jumps of lower whoops or the steep, techy terrain of Upper Phil’s/Helipad.

This trail is maintained by Central Oregon Trail Alliance.

    Out of curiosity, why the re-route?

  7. Ryan Pedersen says:

    Trail has been rerouted but basically in the same area. Snow was completely packed down from tons of fat bike traffic yesterday. As long as it stays cold you could ride a CX bike on it (but please don’t)

  8. Dustin Balderach says:

    All dry, no snow or mud in sight. One blown down about 3/4 (??) of the way up. Can ride around it. Lots of pine needles but riding great!

  9. Eric Meade says:

    Totally clear now with no snow to the top of Lower Whoops. Getting dusty already.

  10. Eric Kutter says:

    Totally clear on the climb. Just one hike-a-bike snow patch as you hit the road by the bench.

  11. Tristan S says:

    Several patches of snow starting about 3/4ths of the way up. They get progressively larger as you head to the Whoops / Skyliners intersection. One tree down towards the top.

  12. Eric Kutter says:

    Lower 0.8 miles from rd 300 riding great, and then you hit snow. Looked pretty patchy glancing up the hill so should start melting quickly.

  13. David Welton says:

    This is a great alternative to the hordes of people on Whoops, both up and down.

  14. Chris Morgan says:

    This trail may be unsanctioned, but it doesn’t stop everyone and their sister from riding it!
