E-bikes NOT allowed on Pinedrops
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.
