Trail Reports

  • Joe Myers October 30, 2017 at 5:02 pmCleared or trimmed back about 20 trees. All clear
  • Joe Myers October 25, 2017 at 7:11 pmsome trees down, no snow.
  • Joe Myers June 23, 2017 at 10:36 amCleared The last remaining trees a couple days ago
  • Nat Chotechuang June 19, 2017 at 10:18 amThe snow patches have receded enough to be able to pedal on dirt the entire way. Other than about a 5' length of snow the rest of the trail is riding well, so I'm going to go ahead and flip the status accordingly. There's still one tree down across the trail at about midpoint.
  • Alex Marganski June 12, 2017 at 3:46 pmone tree down about .5 miles in and then there are a couple of rideable patches of snow. One big patch at the bottom of the punchy hill that you can almost skirt. After that it is clear to south fork.
  • Jeff Moore June 2, 2017 at 2:53 pmThere are many patches of snow so on and off riding. Minor blow down, sort of surprising until after the creek crossing and before the old hut site. There is a big tangle of trees and snow making trail hard to keep on
  • Alex Marganski October 25, 2016 at 3:59 pmOne tree down somewhere in the beginning coming from swampy lakes, a few ridable patches of snow/mud/frozen ground
 

Trail Description

Swede Ridge Trail runs from Swampy Shelter to Swede Ridge shelter in the Swampy trails area.  The trail connects to the Swampy Lakes Loop, Tumalo Ridge, S.S.T., Southfork, and Sector 16 trails. There are a couple punchy climbs heading West and some burly rock sections that will sharpen your skills.

This trail is maintained by Central Oregon Trail Alliance.

    All Clear! The moisture this past week has compacted the soil nicely.

  8. Joe Myers says:

    Clear with a couple snow patches. bushes are getting overgrown in sections

  9. Joel Blatt says:

    What is status of Swampy Lakes trail to connect to SRT?

    Instead, do you recommend coming/going via Southfork?

    Thanks for all the work. You are making it hard to keep up with cleared trails.

    1. Joe Myers says:

      I believe the trail on the West side of swampy is clear. Lev worked his way in from swampy yesterday. The trail on the East side of the lake is a mess I hear.

      SST is also a mess.

    Trail cleared 3 days ago by Dan the Man.
