This is one fine trail off the 44 Road on the way to Mt. Hood. We’ll call it 8.8 miles of flowing turns, little drops, creek crossings and fantastic singletrack through mixed pine and Doug Fir forests. This trail can be combined with High Prairie or 8-Mile for a longer loop.
Also, Knebal Springs gets very dusty in late summer. Please avoid riding it at that time of year. To help with erosion problems, please don’t lock up your brakes!
Trailhead: From Hood River, head 31 miles south on Highway 35 to forest road 44 on the left. Drive up the 44 Road 5.4 miles to the Bottle Prairie trailhead on the left. (1 hour)
