The weather has been gorgeous since I returned home from Washington, DC so I knew I had to grab my bike and hit the trails before the rain came back. I’ve never ridden Coyote Wall so I decided that’d be a good place to start.
This area, which I’ve only hiked before, features 20 miles of trails, most of which is single-track and about 1,900 vertical feet to ride down. Many riders probably know this area because of Syncline Trail. However, since it runs on private land, Syncline is now closed to mountain biking and hiking.
No problem though because Coyote Wall offers a joyous network of trails.
Trail Etiquette: Be mindful of hikers and equestrians. Lets remember our manners so we can continue to enjoy this beautiful area together.
Mountain Biking Coyote Wall
Beautiful area, right? I sat on the edge of the cliff for a while just enjoying the view of the river and Mount Hood.
One thing that became pretty apparent is that I need an adjustable seat post so I can drop it down during downhill rides. I’ve never used one before but being able to adjust my saddle height would have improved my riding.
