Beginner-friendly trails located between the city of Sandy and the base of Mount Hood were debut over the 4th of July weekend. These entry-level trails were implemented in order to provide a wider variety of mountain biking opportunities. Read more about the development of these new trails below.
The International Mountain Bicycling Association and BLM were able to upgrade the system’s beginner and introductory trails, thanks to a development grant from Clackamas County Tourism & Cultural Affairs. Riders can now start with a rebuilt Homestead Loop, with rollers, small rock gardens and banked turns that are designed to be fun for all ages and abilities.
