About Oakridge

It seems the trails never end in Oakridge — and maybe they don’t. Hundreds of miles of single-track through the foothills of the central Cascade Mountains offer massive alpine rides for all skill levels, with close proximity to even more riding in the Willamette National Forest, and lift-served downhill rides at Willamette Pass. Oakridge has adopted the “town as a trailhead” concept, with close-to-town loops and a large volume of trails ending and originating within the city. It also offers variety: Dirt jumps and pump-track at Diamond Park give Oakridge additional riding options, and single-track ranges from easy river trail rides to long, ripping descents.

The International Mountain Bicycling Association named Oakridge one of its 11 IMBA Ride Centers, a prestigious designation that “represents IMBA’s Model Trail recognition for large-scale mountain bike facilities that offer something for every rider.” The Oakridge community has put a noticeable effort into creating an atmosphere that’s friendly and helpful for mountain bikers.

Oregon Adventures offers single and multi-day supported mountain bike tours and trailside shuttles in Oakridge, and also operates the Mountain Bike Oregon festival each year.
