Some trails are physically difficult, with long, grinding climbs; other are technically challenging, with endless rocky exposure. The Elkhorn Crest Trail is both, but that’s not all: it may also be Oregon’s most beautiful ride, just a narrow ribbon of singletrack that threads past jagged peaks, alpine lakes, and shaggy mountain goats. Toss in a three-mile, hell-raising descent to finish and you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better adventure for those who possess both strong legs and nerves of steel.
