Mt Eiljih Oregon Caves

Average Rating:    (0 of 5)


Follow the fire road up a 5 mile long continously steep gravel road. This part of the ride is totaly brutal so start out easy. You eventually get up to a place callled "Emerald city" where a bunch of trails meet. Take the first two lefts continueing along the fire roads. After 2 more miles including hills long and steep enoughf to kill you and your entire family you see a single track starting to the left. This is the lake mountain trail. It consists of about 23 switch backs that climb about 1100 feet. The trail heads on a ridge to the back and eventually the top of Mt Eilijh 6000 some feet. Then point you bike down hill and enjoy 2000+ feet of continous downhill singletrack. Lots of steep rockey bits at first. Then it just swoops through the trees and through streams over logs. This is a seroiusly cool ride if you ever do it or consider doing to Email and ill give you more good info. After the ride their is a good chineese joint on the left side of town in cave junction. Pork fry rice and ice tea please.
