    Echo Trails

    Looking at driving out to Echo, OR to sample some of the new trail network out there. There seems to be very little information on it. Has anybody been out there, that can comment on them?

    I may be mistaken, but I think that old guy - you know, the "opinions are like buttholes" guy - has been out there. I'd ask him.

    (sorry, his CB handle escapes me now)

    Did a race out there a few weeks ago, the Echo Red to Red. The trails are alright, nothing too fancy. Mostly singletrack through farmland. Its rolling and non technical.

    Second.
    They are nice for a change. I rode them last June and they were pretty overgrown, but still fun. Especially nice if you're not feeling like climbing for hours. They just roll. And they're well bermed and built for bikes, so there's not any pushing.

    Echo Map link

    It's pretty fun out there this time of year. Enjoyed the race. There is another 5 miles of trails down along the river that has a totally different character than the fast rolling tread that makes up the majority of the singletrack.

    There's a map here:

    You might also contact the race promoter for more info.

    worth the trip

    We headed out there last fall looking for dryness. We "camped" at the RV park in town and did a nice ride on the trail system. We had a little trouble finding the trail system but once we did, the riding was quite nice. Be alert for goatheads if you happen to wander off the trail. Even riding around the parking lot or taking a run through town might be enough to encounter goathead thorns.
    free-flowing meat waves of possibility...
