Catch a bus ride in Government Camp up to Timberline* to ride the exhilarating Timberline to Town Trail. You and your bike can get a lift up to Timberline on the Mt Hood Express to access the US Forest Service Timberline to Town Trail for a great mountain biking experience.
*The only trail open to biking at Timberline Lodge is the Timberline to Town Trail, which is a US Forest Service Trail and not affiliated with Timberline Lodge itself. Timberline Road is not appropriate for cyclists.
The Mt. Hood National Forest is home to 140 miles of mountain biking trails and multi-use trails open to bikes. To the west of the mountain, the Sandy Ridge Trail System contains 15 outstanding miles of purpose-built mountain bike trails open to the public and decent winter accessibility due to its location. Here are complete lists of Mt Hood biking trails from MTB Project and Ride Oregon Ride.
While there is still much planning and work to do, we have set a course toward offering the region’s best lift-serviced downhill mountain bike trail system. If you’re half as excited about this as we are, you’ve already jumped out of your chair and onto your bike! We have diligently been working towards the Timberline Bike Park Project, and look forward to bringing it to Mt Hood soon.
