Oregon Timber Trail
The Oregon Timber Trail is an iconic 670 mile backcountry mountain bike route across the state of Oregon from California to the Columbia River Gorge. The Oregon Timber Trail covers a variety of landscapes, communities, ecosystems, roads, terrain, and most importantly: mountain bike trails. Divided into four unique tiers the Timber Trail is approachable by a wide variety of cyclists. If it sounds familiar you’re not mistaken: the Timber Trail is inspired by the Pacific Crest Trail and other thru-trails in the National Scenic Trail system. What sets it apart is that it’s designed for mountain biking and consists of over 50% singletrack. The Oregon Timber Trail is a world-class bikepacking destination and North America’s premiere long-distance mountain bike route.
Start/End: Modoc Mines to Hood River
Milage: 670 Miles

Nelson Range Traverse
This route traces a line of old prospecting and logging roads that are seldom traveled. Bikepacking through the middle of the Selkirk Range south of Nelson BC you will get a chance to ride through stands of old growth cedar bisected by avalanche paths choked with wildflowers. With over 11,000 ft of elevation gain in two days you can expect to be well distracted by the views of high peaks and the valley bottoms.
