A great set of new mountain biking trails on the Mount Hood Highway 26 near Sandy. An easy gradual road climb leads to a myriad of trails. Check the sign at the trailhead and at the top of the road climb for a map.

Technical ride at the top that changes into rollers and banks at the bottom. Really solid ride for an intermediate+ rider. I would now recommend the top section for beginner riders but the bottom is likely okay. Very fun ride and reasonable climb as it’s is paved and not too steep. Will be returning.

This is mostly a biker trail. Still a nice hike lots of shades of green.

We hiked this trail on a rainy day so no views. It was very confusing as the trails were not marked well. It was a nice woodsy trail and few bikers on it probably due to the rain.

This is not a walking trail. It is a bike trail
Very dangerous for hikers, Do not hike this trail.
Not recommended.
Beautiful walk but it belongs to the bikers.

It was good, but the major drawback was that there were a lot of mountain bikers on the trail. I wish I looked into it further and knew it was predominantly a biker trail.
However, I really enjoyed it.

Me and 2 buddys did this trail prior to completion and it was epic!!! The 3 miles of uphill paved road to the starting point of the downhill trail was not all that exciting for me, but the technical downhill sections made it all worth it!!
