Southeast Portland metro area. Tread: Mountain View Trail, .6 mile, is paved. The other trails are singletracks with gravel, hardpack, and cobble surfaces. Hazards: Watch for other Park users. Many of the trail signs are missing, but try to stay on the bike trails. Riding becomes more hazardous when the trails are wet and slippery.

awsome place to get your cardio up, or just get used to the bike after winter. trails are fun from the top for getting speed and chasing obstacles

Not very long unless you intend to ride in circles. Good mainly for those after work quickie rides. Not very intense nor strenuos so it's a good place to bring your beginner friends. Go at dusk before the park closes at 10. You'll have awesome views of the sunset to the West and Mt. Hood to the East. Really the only reason this is even worth while.

A nice ride in both forest and open plain. Easy to find, close to Portland, varied terrain and plenty of parking. Use this trail to warm up your legs for something longer. Be sure to get all the way up for the view of Mt. Hood and Mt. Saint Helen's - this is worth the visit.
