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.

Sunday stroll is just a stroll on the boardwalk, if the boardwalk was in the air and required jumping on and off ladders and jumps with mandatory gaps. This is not for the beginner and requires expert skills to perform properly. As with all trails on the mountain scout each feature and measure trail speed and risks involved.
Brake Check is a high flying jump marathon that is characterized by mandatory doubles with few ride arounds. This trail requires expert skills and proper scouting of the jumps and features.
