Summary:
Great little trail, has plenty of fun technical areas to make up for the rest of the boring ride. Jumps along the rails to trails part are great, you can make them as big as you want. The ravine area is fantastic, lots of places to ditch the written line and jumt to the next. Sucks about being private and having to pay despite having a state park pass.

Summary:
i ride this trail at least 2 to 3 times a week in the summer. less in the school year. its a great fun place not really the hardest tho but once you find the good spots and know where everything is its alot of fun. like others said its not really a loop but like i said if u know where to go. you just have to explore and find good things though much has been worn or messed up. some nice logs have been cut through and obstacles taken apart. i wish i could build some.

Recommended Route:
well if its your first time i know of one place that would be possible to describe . ride the trail through the fence which is the entrance and follow that for a while. when it splits got to the right, you should be following the river twards the waterfall. follow that trail along the river. you will pass a main double wide trail on the left but stay on the singletrack. follow the trail and u will find a very steep uphill. go around on the trial to the right. keep following the river. follow the trail till you get come out of the forsest to a wide trail thats looks over a cliff on the river maybe 15ft down. now go along the river till you pass the bench where you turn left into the forest again. once you enter there will be a trail going up the hill to the left( straight ahead its goes at a angle \). once you get to the top of that make a u-turn right and follow that for a while. ride that double track . it will pass a few trails that branch off but stay on it. it will soon turn right and com to the edge of the cliff. there is a trail to your left. it rides on the edge of mountain i call it and dont fall, follow it and you will come to a nice section of s's and some jumps ovr typed

Summary:
I don't understand why people have to dog on a decent trail system so close to home.....Eugene.....so what if the west coast is better...eugene.....I grew up riding out in Washington, Eugene, and rode the 4000' elevation gains, eugene, but the only problem with those trails is that you have to drive for 2 hours to get to them....Maybe if you rode something several times per week that maybe wasn't up to your finicky standards, you could get your fat butt up that 4000' gain trail a little faster when you did go out west. You figure, something that is 5 min's away from home....how often would you ride it....?

Recommended Route:
Hit the hill thingy.....lots of times....till you throw up....

Summary:
This really was a fun place to mess around... about 4 years ago - Basically - river erosion has made it into a giant sanbox, as far as all of the good single track goes. Watch out for hikers on the main thoroughfare. Might be fun, right after a light rain.

Summary:
I think this place rocks. I wasnt going to write a review untill i read the first twenty. First to arcg, the "super death hill", used to be a ski jump. thats right a ski jump. there used to be a wooden launch at the very top were the houses are. And you dont have to be crazy to ride down it. Start at the middle and work your way up, you will be bombing it in no time.Second to Tommy, come one man i cleaned that log my first try, to bad some fu*ker hacked the crap out of it and now its gone. And finally to a rider that i question his skill, larry s from utica. I might not be a pro rider {yet}but what i do know is that the little teck skills you learn at bloomer are the backbone of a good rider. I ride bloomer all the time. And it never gets boring.

Recommended Route:
Park anywhere buy yates, cross the bridge, bunnyhop the hole, and climb the fence. the money you save will go to yates anyway.
