are mountain bikes allowed and is the property patrolled by any state or salem or fisher or rangers to make sure if have car or bikes locked up its safe or if anyone needs help encountering a deer or cyote.

Hi Derrick, biking is allowed on the trails; just use your judgment during mud season to help prevent erosion. From spring through fall, the parking lot is heavily used by the golf course, so there are usually people present. There is a brand new bike rack next to the trailhead; bring your own lock. There is no patrolling of the lot or trails, which are generally very safe. Any wildlife is likely to turn the other way if they hear you approach.

Thanks for the info. im very careful of using unsafe surfaces and know about erosion. just didn't know what or if this was accessible and if there are resources other than the golf course thanks

Great! Just know that the trails are not flat, smooth and straight, like a bike path. They're rocky, hilly & windy, perfect for an intermediate hike and (in my mind) a challenging bike ride.
