This is the DH course for Jacksonville's bike fest, it is a bit hard to find. I'll do my best to explain it. The race course finishes, but a second trail will carry you down to the bottom.

Summary:
not too sure about the 'secret squirrel' trail, but they've added a lot of trails in forest park over the past couple of years, and it's a pretty fun place to ride now. you are basically riding either on the hiking/biking singletrack (tends to be pretty steep) or on the MRA motorcycle/ATV trails. the singletrack is challenging for me but the newer trails are more rideable than the first ones they put in, and you can mix and match quite a few different loops. the motorcycle trails are more like fire road/ etc, but there is a lot of mileage, and very little motorized traffic most of the time- when I go on weekdays, there are usually 0-2 trucks parked in the lot, and you can forget about the motorists for the most part.

if you're looking to ride the singletrack, just park at the lower lot (below the reservoir, first parking lot you get to on reservoir rd). there is a kiosk there with a trail map, etc.

Recommended Route:
rail trail, canyon vista trail, you'll figure it out.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
britt woods is nice but shorter and more hikers

Summary:
I left out the directions! Check below, if you need some clarification email me at XC.forever9@gmail.com. SHUTTLE IT! Leave a car at the dam/res.
Make sure your breaks work :D!

Recommended Route:
Here are the Directions:
1. If coming into Jacksonville form N. Oregon street take a right on E. California street.
2.Continue on this road (about 3/4 mile) until you see Jacksonville Reservoir road on your slight right (turns into dirt road here).
3. Follow this road passed Jacksonville Resivor until you hit a fork in the road (one goes slight down, the other goes up over rough bumps).
4. Follow this road until you come into the Lily Prairie motorcycle area stay on the main road (you should be going over small whoops in the road)until you come to an intersection.
5. At the Intersection (ahead of you should be a flat man made area with an MRA sign) Take a right.
6. Continue until the next intersection and take a left.
7. Follow this road up for about a mile, stay on this road.
8. You will come to a great view of Medford and Table Rocks, this is where to park.
9. Behind you (when looking at the view) will be a rough road going up the mountain, head up this.
10. At the top, look to the right and there should be a big puddle, or in the summer a pretty large bowl shape, follow this trail/road.
11. Continue on this for about 7 minutes, on bike, until you see a trail thats about 2 quads wide on your left (I've marked the trail with a stack of rocks and a stake).
12. Continue along this till you come to an intersection(about 2 minutes), take the left down the hill(also marked with a stack of rocks). Cross your fingers it hasn't been taken apart.
13. You will come to an area where 2 trails combine, continue to the right, be searching to your left for a tree with one orange ribbon, or just look for a trail with logs blocking it off and a little MTB ONLY sign.
14. You made it to the trail!
TRAIL DIRECTIONS
1. After the second drop you will be spit onto a road/trail follow this for about 45 seconds until you see a trail the is marked and takes off to the right.
2. Enjoy the rocks, follow this to the finish of the downhill portion, you will continue on a dirt road/trail until you see a trail take off to the right marked with a little orange flag. Take it.
3. Enjoy this till you come to a tree with a short steep uphill, take the right down the grasstrail across the bridge over the creek. Follow this until you are spit out onto the road.
4. You can either ride the road down, or head up the hill and take NORLING CREEK trail
