We thought we would be able to bike this trail since it has "mountain biking" listed in activities to do on this trail. The trailhead sign says ONLY HIKING ALLOWED. No horses, motor vehicles or bikes. The hike is probably great based on other reviews but we were looking to bike.

This hike is fantastic and not to crowded at all which is a big plus. You are beside the water for basically the whole hike and it is shaded with breaks of some good sunshine. The water was so clear and blue it was amazing and it was easy enough for all ages although some of the trail did get thin so I wouldn't recommend for trackchairs. Also 2 1/2 miles into the trail there is the hatchery that is great for all ages and has food you can give them for 25 cents.

Easy to moderate trail depending on your experience. The Metolius River is very pretty and there are lots of little places to stop and appreciate it. Fish hatchery is also interesting and worth checking out .
