Secret Squirrel - TRAIL

Secret Squirrel - Trail, Jacksonville, Oregon

This is the DH course for Jacksonville's bike fest, it is a bit hard to find. I'll do my best to explain it. The race course finishes, but a second trail will carry you down to the bottom.

not too sure about the 'secret squirrel' trail, but they've added a lot of trails in forest park over the past couple of years, and it's a pretty fun place to ride now. you are basically riding either on the hiking/biking singletrack (tends to be pretty steep) or on the MRA motorcycle/ATV trails. the singletrack is challenging for me but the newer trails are more rideable than the first ones they put in, and you can mix and match quite a few different loops. the motorcycle trails are more like fire road/ etc, but there is a lot of mileage, and very little motorized traffic most of the time- when I go on weekdays, there are usually 0-2 trucks parked in the lot, and you can forget about the motorists for the most part.

if you're looking to ride the singletrack, just park at the lower lot (below the reservoir, first parking lot you get to on reservoir rd). there is a kiosk there with a trail map, etc.
