  • Metolius Windigo – In early summer when the snow melts, traverse the subalpine zone from Dutchman to Mrazek for an epic ride with over 40 miles of singletrack.
  • Flagline – Flagline is one of our favorite trails: ride rolling terrain through old growth hemlock with huge mountain views before connecting to the Swampy Trails. Heads up: this trail opens on August 15 and is closed before that to provide elk-calving habitat. Please respect the closure.
