Was about a 7 mile ride round trip from Mosby creek trailhead to Dorena lake and back . It is completely paved but there were areas where a horse can comfortably walk on the grass next to the trail . Yummy apple trees adorn the trail side to compete with you for your horses attention . Rode down to the water carefully avoiding the wet spots (slippery mud) . Let the horses drink a bit from the rocky dry part . It was pretty neat to see the huge dam and lake . Only one boat was out becuase it was freakin hot and Smokey - but still beautiful . One of those trails that u wouldn’t necessarily seek out unless u live near it - but if u have to go to the neighborhood for some reason might as well saddle up ! There are a lot of bikes and most just zip by - with no understanding to be cautious of the horses . But that’s ok . It works !
Enjoyed this trail from beginning to end. Well maintained with beautiful views of wooded hillsides, covered bridges, old barns, river, flowers, farmland, and the lake. Stayed in Schwarz Park campground about MP 6 of the trail. Accessed the trail about 1/2 mile from campground. First day rode from camp to top end of trail around the lake and up through the farmlands. Second day from camp to town for coffee and baked goodies at the brewery. Afternoons spent exploring the wineries. Very much enjoyed this trail.
Beautiful shady trail lined with wildflowers. Nice flat trail with lots of pretty scenery.
This trail is smooth pavement with a very gentle grade. Beautiful views and country all along the way.
This trail is well maintained and well marked. Definitely one of the better rail-trails in the Pacific Northwest and well worth the stop. Any kind of bike will work on this trail. One can only hope that it will be lengthened in the future.
Trail very scenic in sections not far from Cottage Grovre,, but narrows to to 8’ around 8 miles out. There are also gravel sections along the last 10 miles, and trail is closed in some areas.. many road crossings
My husband and I rode this trail recently from Cottage Grove to about the 7 mile marker, but at that point the trail was closed due to a very large sink hole further on. We could have gone on the road for approximately 2 miles and then returned to the trail, but chose not to do so because the road is used by logging trucks. This was disappointing because the trail is beautiful and in very well maintained.
We cycled a portion of this trail. We parked at a small trailhead around MM7 on Row River Road which had room for about six cars. If you look at a trail map, I believe the trailhead was called Row Point although there was no sign at the trailhead. Some sections of the trail had quite a few root heaves especially at the start of our ride. However, the damage was marked with yellow paint and did not cause any problems.
On this section of the trail, you cycle in and out of shade and have great views of Dorena Lake. The trail is very flat and is a good one for families. Along the way, there is a vault toilet at Harms Park trailhead and at the end of the trail at Culp Creek. There are a few picnic tables and benches along the trail near the lake.
The trail ends abruptly at Culp Creek where we turned around and headed back to the car. I would highly recommend this very scenic portion of the trail.
While I love experiencing the various trails around the country, this is one of the best. You can just really ride (even fast) for a long time, versus having to stop for many street crossings. The scenery is very pretty, especially around the lake. It is well marked and easy to get to. The trail is maintained well, plenty wide for passing, and over-all a total joy! I rode it 2 days in a row before we moved on to our next adventure. Enjoy!
Beautiful and diverse trail. My favorite so far. Loved seeing Dorena Lake about mid way
We love this trail. We try to ride it every time we come from Southern California to visit family in the Northwest. There is lots of variety and great scenery. Starting in Cottage Grove it doesn't hurt that it's mostly downhill on the way back.
There was more damage this year than before but nearly all the damage was clearly marked.
If you are camping, check out Schwartz Campground. It is nice and only about a half mile from the trail.
This trail is not worth your time to go. Parking is limited. Grades are very steep. Grass growing up through cracks. Tree roots lifting trail. Very narrow. Nothing nice about this trail at all
