Local Info

Oakridge is often referred to as mountain bike capital of the Pacific Northwest. Located in the heart of the Cascade Mountains, this western Oregon destination is surrounded by hundreds of miles of beautiful singletrack paradise for anyone seeking adventure on two wheels.

Riders of all abilities will be satisfied with more than enough riding for several days. If you're new to town, try Flat Creek to Salmon Creek to get a feel for what Oakridge is all about.

From there, start checking the classic rides of your list. Larison Rock Loop, Lawler Shuttle, Alpine or Moon Point Loop are much loved and must-do rides for anyone who visits the area.

Food & Drink

For great food and the best cask ales ever, try Brewer's Union Local 180

Visiting Tips

Spring (May/June) and fall (late Sep/Oct/Nov) are the best seasons for Oakridge. Fall has the least amount of precipitation and some beautiful colors.

Although summer can be hot and dry in the valley, you can easily escape to the higher elevations, like those at Waldo Lake, where the temperatures are cooler and the bugs aren't as bad.
