Beacon Hill

Average Rating:    (4.58 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 19

There are many miles of fire/jeep road and trails. We are constantly maintaining and building trails. This is basically a small mountain / large hill that offers the most techinical riding around!! There are also great beginner and intermediate trails. The trails all join and split often but a 18 mile loop can be made. Generally year-round riding, but spring and late fall are excellent.

Summary:
Someone needs to get a map out there. I am pretty new to riding in town and i have spent most my time in 5 mile. I like to climb but a heads up about what i was getting into when I started going up. The ride down was well worth it though.

Summary:
My friend and I rode east from downtown, took a fire road up the hill and shot down some trails that came out mini ha-ha climbing area (I think that was Beacon Hill). The climb was enough to get you out of breath, it seems that there are many paths down We didn’t know what we were getting into when we started. The downhill was pretty intense, but also a lot of fun. I was on a Giant AC, which was up to the task, but I didn’t envy my friend on his Wall-mart Mongoose. He broke some stuff on his bike and had to walk/slide down too the bottom. I took one good flight over the handlebars, but I was lucky enough not to land on anything pointy. I’m sure there other routs down the hill, but if you don’t know where you are going, be ready for a pretty hairy descent.

Recommended Route:
Up the hill and back down

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Riverside, south hill, Canfield, Mt. Spokane

Summary:
great fun! the rout we took started on a gravel road then turned into a trail and climbed 5 miles to the top. That climbing was HARD!but I've never had so much fun on a bike when I was coming down. you could go so fast, but watch out, there is so many sharp negative-camber dusty corners that I had to do a skid turn on most of them. I was riding a 30 pound Jamis Dakar 1.0 2006 with 5.0 inches of travel.

Recommended Route:
Any where!There is to many trails with no names to say " I like ---- trail best"!

Summary:
Best trail system in the northwest. It doesnt have to be ridden on a full downhill bike although it would be nice. I rode it on a proflex beast and Only got bucked over the handlebars ounce of a sixfoot drop. I highly recomend going there!

Recommended Route:
Boulder beach parking lot and strait up Then head towards the towers.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
All but riverside park.
