The Saddle and the adjacent area are closed for a few months because eagles are nesting in the area. Likely to re-open in late fall of 2021. Please avoid the area. Also, access via the (private) 'FAA Road' to the summit is now closed for construction in the area. You can use the 'Quarry Road' to enter the area, but please don't block the road.
E-bikes NOT allowed on The Saddle
The Saddle is one of 3 downhill trails on Cline Butte. Almost as technically challenging as Trail 1. Many people ride laps up the fire road and down the saddle.
This trail is maintained by Central Oregon Trail Alliance.
