This trail is experiencing full or partial closure due to COVID-19. Please see the open trails nearby for alternate hiking options. Year round hike on gravel road and single track with 800 ft of climb. From the gate follow the 600 road to the "Y" with the 6020 and take a left onto the 6020 road. Follow until it ends and the Uproute trail begins where you'll go through five tight switch backs to the top of the trail at the junction of Extendo (on your right) and the 680 road (straight ahead) and Endo (unofficial trail) on your left. Now you start back downhill on the Extendo Trail which is a maintained trail that winds through the forest and back down to the 6020 road. This trail is open year round to hikers and only April 15 to October 31 (depending on the rains) for bikers and horses. But it can be muddy in spots in the winter. Follow the 6020 back to the 600 road and follow it back down to the gate and the parking long. This hike can be done in either direction.

Great trail! A few switchbacks make it more fun. Strenuous if paced quicker. Great views and opens up to a cleared area at the top.

A quick, fun afternoon hike! One part of it is pretty steep but other than that, it’s an easy stroll around some beautiful trails.

The start of this trail is steep, but levels out. Many routes to go from the top if you want to extend your mileage. I went to McCullough Peak from there and made for a good workout.

well maintained trail, dog friendly, combination of logging roads and trails.

This is a great hike. Enough easy work to be fun. We have done this hike in the rain and, honestly, with the overwhelming amount of moss on the trees, it was shocking. We take our dog who also loves it and doesn't have the opportunity to get into too much trouble. There is the rare bike. All riders have been wonderful with warnings of approach and sharing the path.

Great trail to warm up on for the day. I usually head to the top of dimple hill after I finish this trail. To get a good sustained workout.

An enjoyable New Years Day walk. Stopped for a lunch break near the top.

Great trail and a great hike. If you take the loop to the right at the beginning, its a pretty strong elevation gain. After that the trail will be a gentle downslope the rest of the way, so that's nice. Dogs are allowed but need to be kept away from the creek (OSU research). I've only hiked this trail in the summer where it's dry, but it looks like it could get pretty muddy in the winter. All in all, a great afternoon hike. 1 - 1 1/2 hours.

We did this hike in the afternoon and most of the hike was shaded. I really loved the smells on this hike, nothing quite like an Oregon forest. The start of the hike really ascends and the total ascend/descend of the route we took (I loaded it into the tracks section) was 1,334 ft. We saw two cougar siting posters on the trails, which was exciting for my 10-year old son, but did not see any predators. Also, in the 7.5 miles we came across very few people, most were near the end. I plan on doing this hike again as it is close and is a pretty good workout.

A shady trail, steep for a while if you take the extendo shortcut. Walk back on Patterson road 600. Well marked, with many options for routes, some longer, some shorter. Maps don't show all the trails well, but they are well maintained. My route had 752' elevation gain before turning back on Patterson.
