In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions. For travel options plus weather and road conditions, visit tripcheck.com, call 511 (in Oregon only), 800.977.6368 or 503.588.2941. Routes listed on this website are for informational purposes and intended as a reference guide only.
This area offers multiple trail systems, featuring three main trails with about three miles of riding per trail. The system includes beginner, intermediate and advanced free-ride features, but is rideable by any type of mountain biker. There is also a basic training/skills area with samples of the skill items you’ll find throughout the trail system.
Trailhead: The trailhead is three miles west of Falls City (southwest of Dallas). Parking is at the edge of Camp Tapawingo on Socialist Valley Road. Once in Falls City, head through town and at the bridge turn right and follow the Black Rock Trails signs. Park at the edge of the camp but DO NOT drive and park past the camp archway. Unload and ride up Socialist Valley Road through the camp (PLEASE STAY ON THE ROAD). The basic training area is approximately one mile from the parking area.
