The Magone Trail Network is a 27 mile mountain bike trail network located on the Malheur National Forest and centered around a mountain lake with developed facilities that include a campground, boat dock, swim beach, and bathrooms. Project planning began in 2014 with environmental review completed in May of 2017. Through the efforts of a dedicated volunteer force, REDD construction and the U.S. Forest Service, 14 miles of the network have been completed as of July 2022. Yearly, EOTA works to maintain existing trails, build new sustainable trails as well as seek funding for additional contract built trails within the approved network.

John Day’s pump track features a looped sequence of rollers, burms, and swoopy banked turns designed to maximize momentum, limiting pedaling. EOTA completed phase I of the pump track in 2020. Phase II of the pump track will include a jump line ascending off of a shipping containing to increase the diversity of experiences available.
EOTA is currently seeking funding to design and build phase II. The pump track is located up the hill from John Day’s 7th street splash pad and is fun for all ages. Come check it out and see how many laps you’ve got in you!
EOTA completed the John Day Bike Park in 2018 and continues to maintain the trails yearly. The bike park consists of just under 2 miles of single track mountain bike trails located within the city of John Day. The John Day Bike Park trailhead is located at the John Day Pump Track. The bike park trails feature one green and one blue climbing trail and three fun, flowy descending trails. These trails are great for families and beginner mountain bikers!
