Tumalo Ridge Trail runs from Skyliner trailhead to Swede Ridge shelter. It starts at Skyliner Sno Park, and heads up Tumalo Ridge via a series of switchbacks to a nice overlook on the East end of the ridge. This is a beautiful trail, with great views and a steep side-slope. Once at the top of the ridge at the East end, things get a fairly technical starting with a very rocky 180 degree turn around edge of the ridge.
Next you’ll hit a series of back to back, steep, rocky climbs that test your endurance and low speed bike handling skills. Eventually the trail levels off and opens up to a few nice views of the Cascade Range.
The trail soon spits you out on a fire road climb which takes you up to Swede Shelter. The Shelter is hard to see, so be mindful of some trails off to the left of the road at the intersection of the Sector 16, Swede Ridge and SST trails.
This trail is maintained by Central Oregon Trail Alliance.
