Oakridge/Westfir

Oakridge Mountain Biking by Thomas CobbOakridge, and its sidekick Westfir, are the ultimate base camps for outdoor adventurers. Above the fog and below the snow line, these communities offer a year-round paradise of outdoor thrills. A former logging town, Oakridge is now known as the "Mountain Biking Capital of the Northwest."

Make Tracks

  • In Oakridge, mountain biking is king. Shred miles of single-track through lush forests, along riverbanks and down mountain ridges with breathtaking views. 
  • Snowshoe to a frozen waterfall splayed across the rocks like a sparkling diamond. 
  • Take a snowmobile for a spin around the Waldo Lake Snowmobile Trail.
  • Step softly among spring wildflowers on a trek to forage Oregon truffles and other wild mushrooms.

Get Wild

Soaks and Suds

  • The best day on the slopes, whether skiing or mountain biking, ends with a dip in natural hot springs.
  • Sip a real cask ale at a destination craft brewery - now that is a nice finish.

Bunk Up

  • From Oakridge hotels and hostels to campgrounds; there are plenty of affordable and convenient places to stay. 

Wonders of the Forest by Rick FaberThe Middle Fork Ranger Station in Westfir is open Monday through Friday. Stop by for maps, permits and trail conditions.
