Sandy Ridge Trail System

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.

 

The System offers over 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.

Sandy Ridge is a model trail system that provides an experience for every rider. Riders earn their turns as they ascend over 1500 feet to the top of the system. From the top of the system riders have numerous choices depending on the length of ride their interested in, the level of difficulty they feel comfortable with and the type of ride experience they seek. At Sandy Ridge, these trails are directional and are recommended for downhill travel only. All trails are rated by difficulty - download the Alsea Falls Trail System map for additional information.

 

The BLM and MTB Project are Connecting with Communities through a National partnership to provide an interactive ride experience. MTB project hosts the next generation of mountain bike trail maps.
