Excellent area for hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding. The 'Outback Loop' is a very good trail to take if its your first time, it loops around the majority of the area with good views of Grants Pass and surrounding areas. It takes me on average 50 minutes to hike the outback trail from Espy trail head all the way around and back to Espy walking at 3-4 mph. I plan on getting some friends together and mountain biking the area for fun and to get into better shape. From what I've seen about 75% of the trails are big enough for horses (high clearance). Much of the area has been thinned (fuels reduction) but is still very beautiful, they did a very good job cleaning the area up. Below is a link to the Cathedral Hills Trails with a map of the trail system.

From Grants Pass travel south for a couple miles on williams hwy. After the golf course, turn left onto Espy road. Stay left on Epsy .75 miles to the end.
The parking area is on the small side with room for a half dozen horse trailers and 8 or 9 compact vehicles. There is a rest room at the trail head.

I began riding this trail some 20 years ago on a couple of occasions with my brother.. From what I remeber, I think I pushed my bike to the top of the mountain, then free wheeled all the way back down!! Very dangerous, and extremely fun..

2009 older and wiser... Trails are numerous now, clearly marked, with variety galore.. Every level of riding there to accomodate the beginner to the advanced rider.. I've been riding there now for the last three monthes, and am in the best shape I've been in for 20 years.. I'm addicted enough to be out there with my riding buddies Mon. Thurs. and Sat. Mornings at 6am.. Very intense to ride with headlights till the sun cracks over the mountain.. Come on out and join us!!!!

cathedral hills is full of various riding contitions and difficulties, there trails range anywhere from easy to somewhat hard, with the hardest trail bridges ( my favorite) containing some wooden stunts, such as a six foot drop, over a trail, or a teeter totter, which in my experience is NOT fun, considering i broke my collar bone trying the thing.....lol, good times.

Customer Service

we usually get to the trail by riding up sky crest, which kinda tales it out of you, but its worth it.

Super-fun trail--I have very fond memories of this place. Large area to explore and lots of different stuff to try. Some portions are very technical; other parts are easy. Some mammothly steep areas; others are flat. This is a fun place. You can download a map at http://www.oregonwebsites.com/cathedralhills/maps.html

You can also start at the trailhead in the back: from Grandview Ave, drive up Sky Way to the stop sign at the top of the hill.
