Carpenter Bypass Trail System

Bureau of Land Management, Oregon.

Whether you rock your lycra loud and proud, don moldy flannel, or track frequent flier miles, you are bound to find stuff to post on your favorite social media account at this popular trail system. Here you will find a 19 mile network of trails located less than a 30 minute drive from Eugene, Oregon. For mountain bikers, the trails were designed to feature significant trail twisting, with narrow turns, steep downhill stretches, and trail features such as rock gardens, jumps and berms.
