Mountain Bike America: Oregon: An Atlas of Oregon's Greatest Off-Road Bicycle Rides Paperback – May 15, 1998
Beachway Press has done it again. Mountain Bike Oregon is the latest release from the publishers' Mountain Bike America Series. And just like all its earlier cousins, Mountain Bike Oregon is the only trail guide you'll ever need. Mountain Bike Oregon is simply the best available book on the market. Finally a trail guide with super accurate maps and details.
Dunegan's fresh approach gives you the nuts-and-bolts of each ride and helpful tips about riding, camping, gear and even how to get your dog in shape for mountain biking. Then she provides a great list of bed and breakfasts, coffee houses, micro-breweries and other fun information about places to see and things to do.
Mountain Bike Oregon contains trails for all levels of ability. You can try a three day outback tour of the southeast desert, ride on the rim of a giant volcanic caldera, pedal through Portland's Forest Park, or ride the Lithia Loop that starts in downtown Ashland. And there are over fifty more rides to choose from. If you love to mountain bike, and you ride in Oregon, you need this book. It is simply the best available book on the market. And at only $15.95 it is a great buy. -- Dirt Northwest, May 1998
About the Author
Lizann lives in Portland but finds solace and escape in open high desert and Cascade Mountains of Central Oregon where she grew up. She enjoys backcountry cycling and bicycle camping through this Northern Pacific countryside against the magnificent backdrop of the Three Sisters Mountains or along the shores of the Oregon coast. She started mountain biking many years ago after borrowing a friend's bike, and has since ridden off-road throughout the entire state of Oregon as well as toured the San Juan Mountains of Colorado. Lizann also enjoys hiking, trail running, cross-country skiing, spinning and dyeing wool, and herding sheep with her Border Collies. She works full-time as a technical writer for a Portland software company.

The difficulty ratings are exaggerated however. The book seems to be geared toward beginning riders. All of the trails that I have checked out have turned out to be very easy regarding technical skill level. If you have ANY experience I would reduce the difficulty level by 1 (e.g. difficult to moderate, moderate to easy).
The book is fairly thorough, but there are many great spots left out of the book. As far as the valley goes it leaves out what I would consider some of the Greatest Off-Road Bicycle Rides. MacDonald Forest, Rickreal, McKenzie River trail, Oakridge, etc...
I would reccomend the book, but I would HIGHLY reccomend talking to your local bike shop for the hidden treasures of Oregon.
