This area is under attack from logging and developing. I don’t know much about the details but check out this website www.mtemily.org. This is the only good mountain biking close to La Grande and I’m surprised that more people aren’t taking action to save this area. If you feel you have something to contribute to the cause it would definitely be for the greater good and worth your while.

I hear there are trails out by Lehman Hot Springs but I've never been there.

Lot's of interconnecting loops, with TONS of switchbacks and direction changes. I can't say this is the best trail system that I've ever ridden on, but it was obviously put together by mountain bikers and is by far the best thing I've ridden in La Grande. It's pretty close to town and my in-law's house, so I no complaints there. I hope to explore the system some more this fall--from what I rode and heard from the LBSs, there's a good mix of technical riding thrown in on some of the trails. It's not Whistler, the Mckenzie River Trail, or the Northridge Trail, but it was a good time. If you are an advanced rider, you won't be signficantly challenged, but definitely check it out if you are in Eastern Oregon.

This trail provides a sweet single track experience. You can select so many options...the hard part is picking one trail over another. There are sections that just "swoop", and there are tough, technical switch-back rides for the people who are looking for a great workout. There are also several hills that will definitelly get your heart rate up into the red zone. Ride for an hour or spend half a day. This could quite possibly be Northeast Oregon's best system of trails (and best kept secret). Cyclesports bike shop (on Island Avenue) in LaGrande offers maps of the area.
