    Klootchy Creek Trails?

    Has anyone checked these out? Heading to the area for a few days, wondering if it's worth taking a bike.

    I haven't been there but a few friends have, and they have said it's worth checking out.

    Heads up that it requires a free annual permit:

    I've been there once and it is definitely worth bringing a bike. Everything from some tech to flow to jumplines. The network on the right has an excellent climbing ST trail so you can loop it all day long.

    They are most excellent!!! Seaside becomes a much more attractive destination because of them.

    Is the network similar to Sandy Ridge in that there is a main climbing route and then you decent or are they all 2-way trails?
    Why do you talk to me this way. When you know that I will kill you for this?

    Yes. There is a left and right network. Left has a gravel road climb and right has a nice ST climb. Super easy to navigate.

    Great thanks.

    Is this doable for a 7 year old with a geared bike? Trailforks says the vertical is 506ft so I'm envisioning something similar to Bend's lower whoops lap. He's totally confident on that but wishes it was steeper.

    My 6 year old was fine - the road is a bit steep (just a lot faster), so stick to single track. He was good for two laps. The zone on the right...
