Oakridge - Westfir

Oakridge and neighboring Westfir are the ultimate basecamps for outdoor adventurers. Above the fog and below the snow line, these communities offer a year-round paradise of outdoor thrills. This mountain town is the perfect getaway for adventurers looking for a rugged adventure in the pristine Cascades and is crowned by the Willamette Pass ski resort. Oakridge is known as the Mountain Biking Capital of the Northwest and a popular destination for mushroom foraging, fishing and side-by-side riding.

The Middle Fork Ranger Station in Westfir is open Monday through Friday. Stop by for maps, permits and trail conditions. During the summer season, drive or cycle the Aufderheide Byway to McKenzie River for more mountain biking, hiking, waterfalls and field of lava rock.
