Summary:
New developments... Part of the dockton to pit trail was bulldozed. It was re-routed.

Entire Vista and ridge cross country trail was bulldozed. Including dirt jumps.

New catwalk, 100 feet or more, up the steep dirt wall on the roadside.

New and improved dropoff sections after that.

Recommended Route:
right into cement blocks, right into catwalk/ drops/ jumps area.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
DNR. Sealth Forest.

Reviewed by: Tage , from Vashon, WA

Summary:
On that road(heading uphill)... first left..straight downhill to the park(not worth it) second left..XC trails w/Gulleys, about 3 miles, hidden pond in there somewhere during winter. Third left(1/2 mile up road, next to corner)...Same XC trails, these stretch to the golf course First right...This trail goes into Peters trail(inconspicuous on the first right of the core trail), core trail also goes to everywhere else (dockton, sandy shores, gravel pit, gold beach) Second right... This trail is a shortcut around the fence/gate. Don't go on the gravel road, because you'll see the "No trespassing" signs, then you will "know it is illegal". Follow this trail, and take an inconspicuous right into the Blair Witch/Proflex, you will see a mound with a 90 degree turn on the top. If you take a conspicuous left of the top of the core trail though, you will be heading to the pits on the left, and sandy shores on the right. The proflex comes out where you went in (2nd right). 3rd right... go over hardpack mound, past little jump and stumps. ride along fence, turn right at the fences end. go left at short dual track for fast fire road that was cut in half by the 6 point quake, scary but easy, one foot drops. This trail craps out at the dock. You can then go back up the loose gravel fire road you came on. Or Through the sandy gravel pits (needs wide footprint, 25 psi, 2.5 inch tires). Or along the Beach to sandy Shores or Gold Beach, rocky part is most ridable, not sand, watch the tide. I don't suggest going down this trail at all... If you turned right at short dual track, go a few yards, then turn left, You will pass some great Vistas, This is the fastest hardpack/single track, goes 1/2 mile along side of old pits. You will be able to see the fire road below. Comes out at top of the active mining pit. If you take left at the four way, you go to high bluff. Right and you goto a very inconspicuous trail on the left, Summer only. Straight, and you continue on main trail. This ends at the top of the hole trail network, downhill every direction, Both Proflex/witch/peters accesible from here. If you get lost, go downhill, more downhill, and more downhill, then downhill on the road and you'll appear at dockton park.

E-mail me for a un-detailed map don't expect a response for 1 or 2 weeks.

Recommended Route:
Goto Dockton park/marina/gravel lot. Whatever you call it, it is the same place. Don't ride up the trails, it kills your energy for the other trails. Go up the paved road to Gold Beach.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
DNR/ vipco trails. On sunny days, not after rain. Across from Cemetery, up gravel driveway. Left to transfer station, Right to Valley Of The Firs/town
