The Larison Rock is a classic Oakridge ride. The downhill part of the ride is both beautiful and thrilling. Expect big forest with giant moss covered trees and rowdy single-track that hugs the constantly changing steep hillsides. First timers should stay left on the trail to begin and pedal/push/hike up to the Larison Rock viewpoint. The vista is definitely worth the effort. Ride back down to catch the main trail and start the ride in earnest. The main Larison Rock trail starts with a moderate descent on tight single-track through big moss covered trees, contouring across steep hillsides. The route then transitions to a steep descent down the nose of a ridge before rolling out to traverse across the top of a connecting ridge. Larison Rock then goes back to more fast sections of narrow bench cut trail on steep side slopes. The lower reaches get a little rowdy at times. The terrain is a mix between steep, chunky trail and tight single-track that ducks in and out of drainages. Beware of your speed around blind corners and exposure on the downside of the trail. Larison Rock trail ends at La Duke Rd. To head back to town, turn right on La Duke Rd and then stay left at Greenwaters Trail back to the park and the beginning of the ride. Distance: 3 miles Climb: 709ft Descent: 2781ft
