Thru-Hiker Resources - Willamette Pass

Highway 58

Oakridge provides a cheery rest stop for thru-hikers just 27 miles (43.45 km) west of the Pacific Crest Trail on Highway 58. Local guides offer hikers shuttle service from the trail. Catch a ride and meet up with friends and family for a few nights in a comfortable lodge or hotel.

This former logging town caters to outdoor adventurers. Join mountain bikers, hikers, kayakers, mushroomers and bird watchers at the local brew pub and share stories over a craft beer. The summer season highlights concerts in the park, mountain biking events and even an ukulele festival.

Oakridge offers a grocery store, bank, post office, pharmacy, thrift shop, library, bike shop, restaurants and lodging. There are many campgrounds in the vicinity.

The Diamond Express connects Oakridge to Eugene. Sixty minutes from Oakridge is the Eugene Airport, Eugene Amtrak train station and Interstate 5, making a rendezvous with your family and friends in Oregon's beautiful Cascades exceptionally easy.
