Not sure how many people read this article in the Bend paper a few weeks back.
Was super excited when I read this. Can't find much online about the trails at all.
I looked up the section of forest on google maps and it appears that Mrazek actually cuts through it currently? (Edit - just checked an Old GPS track, and Mrazek literally skims the bottom border in a couple sections, but never enters Skyline.
Anyhow, I made my way out into the forest today by car, and eventually came across a few fresh moto tracks. I parked and took off following one of the trails, and it was actually really nice singletrack. Looked to me like someone just rode down the trail on a motorbike, but it didn't appear as a typical moto track. However there were quite a few fairly straight sections of trail. So possibly always a moto track. Don't really know.
Anyhow, I had a ball. Went about 5 miles and then had to turn around due to the sun going down. Wished I would have had longer. Here is a GPS of my ride.
Came across a small seasonal creek next to what looked like a place that people like to camp. Also came across a little group of hand made benches in a semi circle. Middle of nowhere.
Here's a few photos from the short ride.
