The Tumalo Creek Trail runs from Skyliner Snowpark to Tumalo Falls. The trail is very fast when descending, so be careful as there are some short sight lines due to the fast growing vegetation. This trail provides great views of the ridge across Tumalo Creek and access to the bottom of the Southfork and Northfork trails. It’s also a fairly popular hiking trail and a good nordic trail in the winter that is shared by snowshoers, skiers and fat bikers.
Note that the bridge West of Skyliner Sno Park is missing due to repair, so the Forest Service is routing people up over the lower part of the ridge to intersect Tumalo Creek trail a hundred yard or so up the trail. See the Tumalo Tie shown on the map.
For winter riders, many ride the road to or from Tumalo Falls. This allows for a loop as opposed to an out and back. Please do not ride on XC ski tracks if you see them. This can be hard on Tumalo Creek trail — but you have lots of room on the road to carve your own path.
