Oakridge Resupply Guide.  

 

Continuing our “Resupply Guide” series and heading north from our Chemult Guide, we drop into Oakridge just in time for summer’s arrival. Insider tips on how to get the most of Oakridge, whether you’re doing a quick resupply or using Oakridge as your basecamp for a long weekend of shuttles, everyone will find something of value in this guide. Chock full of insider tips!

 

“Many people know that Oakridge’s vast trail networks follow from years of logging and as a result a modern latticework of gravel roads lined with spring rhododendrons take you deep into the mountains in every direction. Not only do these roads allow nearly car-free pedaling to the top of most trails, but they make great riding in the shoulder season, so grab your gravel or mountain bike and come on over to Oakridge and pedal to a waterfall, lake, or harvest some fresh huckleberries, thimbleberries, and blackberries. For the bikepacker doing a thru ride and with a few extra days available, Oakridge is both a beautiful place for some mid-ride recovery by sleeping in a bed and eating delicious, filling meals, but also a great place to blow your recovery plan by riding some of the best trails in the country directly from town, such as: Alpine, Dead Mountain, and Larrison Rock. Or, save your legs and take a local shuttle to the top of these trails and many more, but be prepared, Alpine Trail has 4,000 feet of climbing on the descent!  Despite the heavy early logging you can find some stands of old-growth forest around as well.”
