Located in the Oak Creek area of McDonald Forest, Extendo Trail can be accessed from the Oak Creek gate, which sits at the end of NW Oak Creek Drive. The Oak Creek gate is home to an information kiosk with brochures, a trash can, dog waste bags, and a port-a-potty. Extendo Trail can be accessed by following the 600 Road north until it forks, and then veering west onto the 6020 Road. The entrance to the trail is located on the north side of the 6020 Road, about 500 feet west of the 600 - 6020 Road junction. Extendo Trail passes through an area of McDonald Forest that is managed as mature forest for many types of wildlife to call home. Some tree species grown within this area are harvested to produce wood products used for building materials. Extendo Trail is a multiple-use trail open to hikers year-round and open seasonally to bikers and equestrians. Bikers and equestrians are permitted to use Extendo Trail only between April 15th and October 31st. This trail is 1.4 miles long with a 173 foot gain in elevation. Extendo Trail connects with Uproute Trail, as well as several forest roads, allowing for visitors to create excursions of varied lengths. This trail is the most difficult for mountain bikers due to its steepness and number of technical features. Because of its steepness and high amount of use, Extendo Trail can become eroded and muddy during the rainy season. Stop by and take a ride on one of the forest's most popular trails!
