“A rolling singletrack on the north shore of Lookout Point Reservoir.”— Dederick Siedler
From Eugene, take Highway 58 east to Lowell by crossing Dexter Reservoir into Lowell. Once in Lowell, turn right onto W. Boundary Road and follow to the top of the Lookout Point reservoir dam. From the dam, hike east on the road to the trailhead at 0.8 miles.
About 4 miles in, the trail comes back out to the road for 1/2 mile. Look for another marker to drop you back towards the lake. The trail soon crosses the Signal Point Boat Ramp. Soon you'll arrive at Ivan Oaks Campground. This is a good place to stop, fill with water at the campground pump and hike the road back to the car. The trail does continue from here for the more adventurous for a few more miles; eventually you can make it to the North Shore Tie.
This hike has no significant climbs, but has a few muddy crossings, and roots and rocks are common in the first half; the second half gets smoother.
