Trail Reports

  • Ryan Pedersen May 28, 2017 at 3:53 pmAll clear. Getcha some!!!
  • Tom Ponte May 8, 2017 at 8:46 pmLike Bill says the trail is clear of snow and downed trees all the way to Kiwa Springs. The pine cones politely moved off the trail since then. There is surprisingly a lot of snow all of a sudden just past the springs and down Tylers a quarter mile but you can ride through most of it. There are a couple of tree portages in that section from the springs but not too bad.
  • Bill Hartrich May 1, 2017 at 3:09 pmDeadfall is cleared out from Tiddlywinks to Kiwa Springs. Still a few dozen patches of snow and a few thousand pine cones, but getting close.
  • Peter Fox April 26, 2017 at 11:06 pmA long walk through snow on the Tylers end. Lots of trees down across the trail.
  • Brian Frankle November 19, 2016 at 2:43 pmLarsen is in great shape, a few puddles. A bit of snow.
  • Natalie Herse October 20, 2016 at 8:25 pmThank you!...I had a great ride on hero dirt...
  • Joe Myers October 20, 2016 at 5:45 pmLarsen now clear
 

Trail Description

Steve Larsen Trail is a two and a half mile connector from Tiddlywinks to Tyler’s Traverse within the Wanoga Trail Complex. The trail starts on the North end at Tiddly with some flowy berms and rock obstacles. There’s even a large boulder about shoulder height you can ride up and over in both directions. After the initial fun, the trail is fairly gentle and as it meanders it’s way toward Tyler’s.

The trail and the trailhead at Wanoga Sno Park are both named in honor of Bend athlete Steve Larsen.

This trail is maintained by Central Oregon Trail Alliance.

    Deadfall is cleared out from Tiddlywinks to Kiwa Springs. Still a few dozen patches of snow and a few thousand pine cones, but getting close.

      Thank you!…I had a great ride on hero dirt…

  6. Joel Blatt says:

    About 1/2 mile off Tiddlywinks there is one fallen tree blocking trail. It is small and easy to bypass. Blockage is recent; two days ago was riding well.

  7. Dustin Balderach says:

    Larsen’s riding great as of Friday (22 July). No blowdowns.

  8. Joe Myers says:

    Clear of trees and snow until literally the intersection of tylers.

  9. Nat Chotechuang says:

    Clear of snow until the last 1/4 mile or so before Tyler’s, then it’s hike-a-bike down Tyler’s for another 1/4 mile or so before the snow clears.

  10. Bruce Bradshaw says:

    It’s best to take Kiwa Sprs road at the last crossing if connecting to Tyler’s. Still a fair amount of snow after that point on both Larsen and Tyler’s. There’s also a big tree across Tyler’s between the junction with Larsen and the 100 road going down.

  11. Bill Hartrich says:

    Larsen now 100% clear of dead fall. 99% clear of snow. And 99.5% ready to rip.

  12. Bill Hartrich says:

    I cleared several large trees out. There are still 4-5 left. Snow just before the Tyler’s intersection.

  13. SK Johnson says:

    Rode SK/Larsens/Tylers/C&R yesterday(4/11) after work. Mistake. Larsens is clear for maybe the first 1.5mi but after that numerous downed trees and lots of snow. Tylers is snowed in for 1mi or so below intersection with Larsens. After that it rode well. C&R was good, just needs to get more tires on it.

    1. Joe Myers says:

      Yeah my bad, see below. Sorry for the trouble!

      1. SK Johnson says:

        Still had fun, it was no trouble at all. Props to chainsaw crew for all the work they’ve been doing out there!

  14. Joe Myers says:

    Larsen cleared of deadfall. Thanks Bill Hartrich, Bill Nashem

    1. Bill Hartrich says:

      Larsen is NOT all cleared of deadfall. Unfortunately. My apologies, Joe, for the ambiguity of the COTA work log. I can see how my post would be interpreted that way.

      I appreciate the props though. We’ve been working like mad to clear it out!

      1. Joe Myers says:

        Thanks for the clarification Bill!

  15. Micah Vitoff says:

    The snow get worse the closer you get to Tylers

      1. David Welton says:

        I “rode” Larsens and Tyler’s yesterday and it was not a good idea: there is a ton of deadfall and quite a bit of snow as well.
