Description

Trail follows Flagline nordic ski trail from Swampy Lakes to Big Meadow. Recently reconstructed and rerouted to skirt the Bend Watershed. Popular with hardy mountain bikers as one of several long loops from Tumalo Falls Trailhead by riding up the North Fork Trail No. 24.2 (uphill only for bikes), across the newly constructed Metolious-Windigo Horse Trail No. 99, then down Flagline Trail No. 41, and back to Tumalo Falls via Swampy Lakes Trail No. 23 and South Fork Trail No. 25. Prior to 15 August, riders must detour via Flagline Access Trail No. 40.1, Swampy-Dutchman Trail No. 40, and Flagline Tie Trail No. 40.3. These arduous 20-25 mile loops follow steep streams and pass through old growth forest. A shorter loop, suitable for hikers or bikers after 15 August, travels around Tumalo Mountain from Dutchman Trailhead.

Flagline Trail (#41), between Flagline Access Trail (#40.1) and Flagline Tie Trail (#40.3), is closed to all use until August 15 each summer to protect Elk calving grounds.
