Trail Description

 E-bikes allowed on Tire Mountain

Tire Mountain is usually ridden as part of the ATCA epic ride, but it’s an amazing trail which stands on its own. After a short climb from the Alpine junction, the trail rolls up and down for a few miles until you start a sustained descent through a dense forest of massive firs, hemlocks, and green under-growth. It’s a fast, fun and pretty ride with great turns, dark soil, and challenging switchbacks. At the bottom you can take the Winberry Divide/Eugene-to-Crest Trail down to Lookout Point Lake but most riders stay left and take Cloverpatch which will eventually rejoin Alpine. Forest road NF-124 will also take you to the valley floor, but that usually includes a LONG ride back to the base of Alpine.

      Open! The fire closure is confusing, official word from FS is Tire is open. The closure starts on tire mountain but does not include the trail
