Myrtle Creek, OR

I moved down here yesterday from Woodland,WA and I'm looking for some good roads to ride. Nothing crazy, please (single track). My goal is to ride 50-200 miles/day while I'm here for the next month or so.

Suggestions?

Tons, but I don't know the names of any of the roads.

I deer hunt down there now and again.

Is this temporary?

Cow Creek loop past the veneer mill will take you to Glendale on pavement from south myrtle- maybe a 50 mile ride, and then turn left past the ball fields at Glendale high school and take windy creek/turns into canyon creek wich will take you into canyonville on gravel.

take a GPS and a map...

go out south myrtle,, it comes out on Days creek at the green bridge, then head south on 227 and make a loop back to the west.
Also some connecting gravel from north myrtle rd. to the north to Glide,, too many miles of good gravel to compress it into a ride suggestion,, just head out! You can spend all day and not get very far at all, just creating loop after loop.
TBlume's input of Cow creek road is spot on,,but when you get into Glendale head towards the freeway,, and off to the right is Tunnel road. Take that,,and do not stop until you get to Wolf Creek,,never mind the tank traps, closed road signs, barricades, and washouts,, it is a great challenge of a road if it's wet! Comes out at the Wolf Creek cementary.
better wear yer knobbies on that one if it's raining,,slick red clay and piles of slippery madrone leaves in every turn!
Gravel connections to the north and south are endless, and you can climb the mountains to the east without hitting asphalt for a long ways!

If you want pavement, Tiller-Trail Highway is a great biking road from Canyonville to Hwy 62. South of Tiller is where it gets twisty with more uppy-downys. If you go East out of Tiller towards Umpqua Falls, that's another good road that is paved well into the mountains. Turns into gravel eventually and goes through to near Diamond Lake, though it might still be closed with snow this month.

As said with gravel roads, pretty much everything in every direction is going to be game-on. Lots of different roads going through to lots of different places.

I lived down in Coos Bay for a year and I had a lot of fun Jeeping around loggin roads near Bone Mt. If you're interested in going further west from Myrtle Creek there are cool places in the Siskiyou NF south of Powers and there is good riding that follows the Rogue River too. Beautiful country down there and not too many other people just beware of poison oak, it's everywhere. Have fun exploring

A month or so, then I'll probably head east, then north, ending up in Idaho for a month or two. I got my motorhome, bike and trailer.

On Cow Creek take the Glendale Powers bicycle route

Another good ride is Snow Creek. Head to Galesville Reservoir in Azalea, road comes out in Wimer

Some of the best twisties around are very close to you. Head down to Wolf Creek and take Lower Wolf which turns into Lower Grave



Bear Camp Rd will be open soon I hope. But Peavine Lookout I'm sure is open

Briggs Valley - Taylor Creek is another personal favorite. Starts at Merlin Galice Rd and ends at 199 South of Grants Pass

It does have a piece of tape on the mic

Everyone hates wind noise but that's pretty much exactly what the rider hears

I was down last month, next trip will be in fall though.

Have fun, and let me know if you stop in near Sandy.
