Mountain Bike Guides for MERA

Mount Emily Recreation Area (MERA)

La Grande's nearby playground for mountain biking, running, hiking, horseback riding, and more. The Mt. Emily Recreation Area lies just northwest of La Grande and offers quick access via Fox Hill Road, Igo Lane, or Owsley Canyon Road. During the summer, the "Towers" are a favorite place for locals to go look out over the Grande Ronde Valley. Gravel biking also exists on Mt. Emily, but the numerous MTB trails offer a great ride that doesn't require a long drive from town.
