The Sandy Ridge trail area brings a welcome resource to the west side of Mt. Hood – it’s an easy drive from Portland, and the trails were all recently built and designed for flow. The trails are low enough on the mountain to stay open about 10 months a year; they’re designed to drain water and hold up to mud.
There are currently 6.5 miles of trails open, with a long-term goal of 16-18 miles of single-track.
Hide and Seek is an intermediate, four-mile descent dropping from an elevation of 2,280 feet to 1,120 with roots, rocks, rollers and jumps built into the trail. Laura’s Loop is a 0.75-mile beginner circuit near the gate with smooth, easy trails but some moderate inclines.
Recent additions include a bridge over Little Joe Creek and a brand-new section of trail. A new, 2.25-mile loop has been added to the Three Thirty Eight trail, including a technical, rock-drop section (there’s a bypass for riders who want to stay less technical).
Directions: Directions: From the east side of Sandy, head east on U.S. Highway 26 (Mount Hood Highway) for 11.4 miles. Turn left on Sleepy Hollow Drive soon after a large sign indicating a left turn for Marmot. NOTE: This will be the second turn-off for Sleepy Hollow. Once on Sleepy Hollow, go 0.3 miles and turn right on E. Barlow Trail Road and over the Sandy River. After 1 mile on E. Barlow Trail Road, look for a gate blocking Homestead Road/2-6E-23 on your left. Trails intersect with the paved Homestead Road north of the gate. Cars do not need a Northwest Forest Pass to park.
Facility Type: Mountain Biking
