O’Leary Trail Shuttle

Departs at 9:00 AM

For Intermediate to Advanced Riders

3 to 5 Hours on Trail

Coast Through Oregon’s Backcountry

For those who are looking for a bigger challenge than the McKenzie River Trail, check out the O’Leary Trail(opens in a new tab)! It’s around 3 to 5 hours in length, and it’s not for the faint of heart. It’s got plenty of switchbacks and no cell service, so it should be avoided by anyone except mountain bikers of intermediate to advanced ability who feel comfortable being alone on the trail. If you feel ready to take the plunge, grab our shuttle at the McKenzie Outdoor Center! You’re also welcome to hang out at Horse Creek Lodge to wash your bike and have a hot outdoor shower when you return at the end of the day.

How It Works

Our starting point is at the McKenzie Outdoor Center(opens in a new tab) in Blue River, Oregon. There, we’ll get you and your gear all set up before starting our 45-minute journey to the O’Leary Trail. We’ll drop you off at the Horse Pasture Trailhead, the trail’s most popular starting point. Enjoy your 3 to 5-hour journey through the backcountry as you experience drastic changes in elevation and bold switchbacks.

Once you’ve taken the final descent down King-Castle Trail, you’ll finish in the King-Castle parking lot. From here, ride across the Belknap Covered Bridge out to highway 126 before heading back east to the McKenzie Outdoor Center. And if you want to celebrate on your way back, stop for a cold beer or a tasty burger at Takoda’s Rainbow(opens in a new tab).
