Summary:
Was I in the right place? I parked at the end of Dogwood and headed into the woods. I found a fun easy loop with several short spurs. The loop was short though, maybe half a mile. Most of the spurs ended in blowdowns and thick stinging nettle. There were a couple of stunt areas, but they had been blocked by logs and brush... maybe to combat erosion, but most likely to keep people off them. There wasn't enough on the loop to keep me interested more than a few laps.

Recommended Route:
I recommend driving over to Powell Butte if you're gonna ride in Gresham.

Summary:
Its got lots of nice runs. Needs a little tlc. Missing lots of jumps but its got plenty of room for them. Has some pretty good jumps already.

Recommended Route:
coming from portland on hwy 26 to Greshim. turn on powl blvd then keep going straight through to powlvally blvd. Then take a right on eagleglove ln. Keep going till the end of the street and there will be a lake and a gravel road to the right. Ride your bike up the gravel road.

I went here yesterday (the correct road to turn off of Powell Valley is called Foxglove). The city has graveled the path around the perimeter. Its no fun on a bike. If it takes 5 minutes to ride all the trails and cover the whole area that would be going slow. The city has a good eye on it so don't expect any jumps either. Too bad for the local kids I guess.

What its great for -
1. Letting your dog poop with the feeling of being in the woods.
2. A walk with grandma/grampa

What is not great for -
1. Biking


End.
