Hardesty Trail #3469

  • Address:
    Highway 58, between mileposts 20 & 21
    Dexter OR

This hiking/biking trail climbs the 3,323 ft of elevation in five miles and then descends about 700 ft to the upper trailhead. An intermediate to difficult hike, it is extremely popular with mountain bikers for it's downhill reward. The first section is fast and smooth with sporadic roots and rocks. Slow down and you’ll notice clover, green maple, Oregon Grape and occasional trillium. After three miles you’ll arrive at Crale Creek Rd. From there it's another 2.5 miles of the same style of singletrack. Mountain bikers should watch speed as hiker traffic increases near the lower trailhead.
