Trail Reports

  • David Pilz November 7, 2017 at 10:20 pmRideable (I wasn’t on a fat bike) and fun snow all the way from the visitors center to Grand Slam.
  • Natalie Herse October 13, 2017 at 7:40 pmA bit sloppy from today's rain and snow but pretty awesome nonetheless :)
  • Joe Myers September 7, 2017 at 10:30 pmCOTA has stickers printed and signs ready but there's a small amount of work yet to do. Signs should go up soon.
  • Mike Schmeiske September 7, 2017 at 8:12 pmNah, no signage yet. From the Welcome Center, you can see the trail running parallel to the north end of the parking lot. If you are looking for the junction of COD/Ticket to Ride it is just a bit east of the 4610 road, before the technical section. From GS, a trail deviates near the gate off of 4610 that you hug to get on that section. Hope that helps.
  • Joel Blatt September 7, 2017 at 10:27 amIs there any signage for Ticket to Ride? I just rode COD and Grand Slam and did not see anything referring to Ticket. Thanks for your help.
  • Bruce Bradshaw August 17, 2017 at 4:12 pmTrail is finished to the COD/Welcome Center junction. Riders have packed most of the tread, but still bumpy.
  • Robert Rekward August 7, 2017 at 9:13 amThanks Bruce. I just updated the Ticket to Ride map to show the new segment (which is gonna be awesome after it firms up).
 

Trail Description

Ticket To Ride Trail runs from Grand Slam to COD where it crosses and then continues to the USFS Welcome Center. Eventually the trail will get extended beyond GS over to Voodoo Trail.

This trail is maintained by Central Oregon Trail Alliance.

  4. Bruce Bradshaw says:

    Intersection with COD is now a 4-way and still unmarked.Trail continues in the canyon below COD to within 100′ of the Welcome Center parking lot. Tread is soft since it hasn’t been ridden much on the new stretch.

    1. Thanks Bruce. I just updated the Ticket to Ride map to show the new segment (which is gonna be awesome after it firms up).

  5. Mark DeJohn says:

    I was out there today and it’s all buffed in. Finish raked and clear of debris. Enjoy!

  6. Bruce Bradshaw says:

    Tread has been torn up by logging equipment, but rideable. Lots of small debris on trail, too. The junction with COD is umarked.

  7. Bruce Bradshaw says:

    Didn’t actually ride this segment, but from Grand Slam it looks like the logs are out of the way now.

  8. Bruce Bradshaw says:

    The intersections with COD and Grand Slam are marked just with pin flags. The couple hundred yards south of Grand Slam are blocked by cut down trees and the tread has been chewed up by logging equipment. You can cut over to Road 4610 where the logging starts.
