From the FR320 TH, Red Lake Tr719 ascends 1000' in the first mile (to Red Lake). Intermediate riders may instead wish to start the ride from Triangle or Si Lake.

Additional terrain can be found on Rhododendron Rdg Tr564.

The ride starts at Red Lake Tr719, with Fish Lake Tr717 as a side spur to Si lake.

Many, many, many lakes in this area, so there are likely many unmarked trails to be explored, however please respect any wilderness area bike restrictions and not ride if it is posted as prohibited.

The forest service has increased the biking wilderness restriction postings the past few years. As always, no PCT biking.

Mosquitoes are ferocious in this area until August. Feel free to try the natural repellents, and avoid drinking carbonated drinks prior to riding, but Deet 100 may be the only protection from 'the swarm'.

Directions: I-205S to SR224E through Estacada and through the Clackamas river valley. At the end of SR224, turn onto FR46 then to FR4690 then to FR4220. Go to the Lodgepole TH or Olallie Lake. View Larger Map. No Map?.
