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.

Trail Overview: Dino’s Runaround begins at the base of the Bonzai Downhill 4. Originally developed for a New World Disorder film, Dino has revamped this trail into a high flying trail that incorporates wooden ladders, drops, jumps and natural dirt jumps and berms. Many of the features have b-lines but still maintain the black level rating of the trail.
This is an expert black level trail and should only be attempted by riders who have examined each of the natural and technical trail features.
