Trail Reports

  • Brian Martin June 13, 2017 at 5:27 pmRode down from Road 700(?) today. Upper section was excellent. Lower section is starting to get a little dusty but still great. Lots of braking bumps on the tight corners in the steeper sections, but not too bad yet. I probably made them a little worse today, sorry!
  • Natalie Herse June 9, 2017 at 6:03 pmFrom Farewell intersection down is perfect, no trees down. Not sure about conditions above Farewell.
  • Tim Maddux June 4, 2017 at 7:36 pmChoppy snow from two crossings above the rocky overlook. We might have tried to get higher but deep muddy ruts on NF-4601 held us back. We met people trying to push up to Farewell. Don't know how that worked out for them.
 

Trail Description

The Mrazek Trail is maintained by Phil Meglasson (the Phil of Phil’s trail) and is not maintained by COTA. You can expect lots of twists and turns, tight corners and Phil’s unique flavor of trail design along the way.

The trail begins at the West end of Shevlin Park and heads up the ridge in a fairly moderate grade all the way to the intersection with Metolious Windigo trail. You can also access the top of Farewell near the top of Mrazek. There is a section of Mrazek near the bottom which was burned in the Two-Bulls fire in 2014 — riding through the burn area is interesting as the fire charred the landscape beyond recognition and opened up some decent views.

Mrazek is also accessed from Phil’s area by taking the BS logging road off of the Skyliners Rd/MTB trail intersection to the North where you will find an unmarked trail dubbed “Kratsch’s Crossing” on Strava. This leads you through the woods to the BS logging road further on, and after heading down and back up this road you will see a trail heading out to Mrazek near the top of Shevlin Park.
