For those who are looking for a bigger challenge than the McKenzie River Trail, check out the O’Leary Trail! 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 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.

#1 of 7 Specialty lodging in McKenzie Bridge

“Used Horse Creek to get a shuttle to Horsepasture trailhead to experience mountain biking the O'Leary/Olallie trail. The driver was awesome, they made sure nobody was forgotten and that everyone had their helmets, water, etc. which is great because it can be easy to forget these things. They have basic facilities for pre-ride needs and the driver drives responsibly. If you want to mountain bike the McKenzie River Valley and want a reliable, friendly, affordable shuttle service, use Horse Creek Lodge.” — Jeff G. (via Yelp)
