Oregon Mountain Biking Opportunities: Sandy Ridge
The Sandy Ridge Trail System provides trail opportunities specifically designed for mountain bikers in the foothills of the Cascade Range. Sandy Ridge is best characterized as a pedal assisted bike park, mixing together traditional backcountry riding elements with modernized trail characteristics.
This model trail system provides an experience for every rider, with 17 miles of trails ranging from machine built beginner level trails with ample opportunities to play on mountain bike features such as rollers and table tops to double black diamond expert level opportunities characterized by narrow technical terrain, dynamic mountain bike moves and high levels of exposure. At Sandy Ridge, these trails are directional and are recommended for downhill travel only. All trails are rated by difficulty.
One of the Bureau of Land Management's "Backyard to Backcountry" treasures, information on the Sandy Ridge Trail System was developed between IMBA and the Northwest Oregon BLM District office to provide world-class riding experiences. IMBA's data on the trail includes elevations, ratings, current conditions, photos, and comments.
