There can be poison oak at the side of the trail in this area so don't strip down for a swim and roll around in the forest afterwards!
Oakridge is home to epic rides and massive shuttles. It is hard to find a nice cruise and it turns out that what there is for short cruises are awesome! This is a fantastic out and back loop that follows the shore of the Willamette River. It feels almost like it is downhill both ways. A perfect intermediate ride or short spin. There are also many swimming holes along the way!
This ride starts and finishes at the parking lot on the west side of the Office Bridge (the longest covered bridge in Oregon). There is water and washrooms here and even a pump track to play on. If the West Fir Lodge is open you should stop in for a meal or a beer post ride.

|Dirt is great! But it did rain after we got off the trail... so take that into consideration.|
