    Where to ride near I-5

    Some buddies and I are taking a road trip to Whistler from Cali. On the way to Whistler, we will have one day to ride somewhere in Oregon reasonably close to I-5. We are looking for technical trail riding that's not too aerobically challenging, or a freeride/DH trail. All of us are at least intermediate technical level (comfortably challenged by Whistler blacks). Essentially, we're looking for a must-do trail for technical riders that's open to non-locals.

    Currently looking at catching a McKinzie River shuttle.

    Any other suggestions?

    Sandy Ridge and Black rock both look pretty awesome. Which one would be better suited for the 7-8 inch bikes?

    There is cold creek trails off 205 just north of camas that are super fun.

    i agree, i love sandy ridge but it is more of an all mountain bike style. if you can only hit one with your big bikes hit black rock.
