#1 Embrace Year-Round Mountain Biking on the Whiskey Run MTB System

Our temperate coastal weather brings mountain bikers from all over the Pacific Northwest to ride Whiskey Run Mountain Bike Trails on Oregon’s Adventure Coast: Coos Bay, North Bend, Charleston. It’s not only one of the most prized biking trails in our region, it is one of the few in the state of Oregon that are open year-round! This beautifully maintained, one-of-a-kind trail system is known among mountain biking enthusiasts for its moderate climbing and fun descending. Riders are treated to sweeping views of the Coos County Forest, tranquil streams, and fern covered forest floors that can only be experienced on Oregon’s South Coast. The Whiskey Run Mountain Bike Trail system is located about 15 minutes from Bandon or Coos Bay off Highway 101. Though the professionally built trails are made to withstand the coast’s weather, it is not recommended that you ride if trails are muddy. Check trail reports or call the local shops or guide services for current conditions.
