Neahkahnie Mountain Professional Review and Guide
"If buried treasure and spectacular views sound at all tempting, this is the ride for you. It takes you south along bustling Highway 101, then wanders steeply up the side of 1,631-foot Neahkahnie Mountain, where local legend says buried treasure still exists. Near the summit, stash your bike and hike through an old-growth coastal forest. Eventually the trail deposits you atop the mountain, where (on a clear day) you can see 50 miles in every direction. Trail surface: Paved road and gravel road."
--Lizann Dunegan, Mountain Biking Oregon: Northwest & Central Oregon (Falcon Guides).
This is a logging road that is a rather unrelenting steep, graveled climb. Due to the size of the crushed basalt rocks (1-3" diam) and our lack of climbing skills, we half pushed, half rode the bikes to the saddle. Having hiked to the summit previously, we decided that the hike was much more fun and rewarding than the bike ride. The downhill ride was ok, but not very interesting.
