Exactly what Ryan said - a fun little trail, 10-15 mins up, 3-4 down and in close proximity to Portland. I like it better than the other local options. You can bike along the Springwater or you can park at the top.

Fun trail. There's not much technical challenge here, but the downhill is smooth and fast and the climbs are enjoyable. There is a phone line you can call to see if the trail is open to mountain bikers before you haul out there.
