Terrain & Trails
Narrow, fast, slow, smooth, rocky, rooty, steep and beautiful describe all the trails in Oakridge. You’ll also sample a wide variety of terrain – granddaddy old-growth trees, clear cuts, giant ferns, natural meadows, cold creek crossings, log bridges, exposure and rock outcroppings.
Recommended Clothing & Gear
Prepare for three full days of riding, so bring adequate clothing, including gloves and layers for a variety of weather. Hydration packs are necessary for carrying food and water. Helmets are required for all rides. We are also camping, so appropriate camp attire will include long pants, camp shoes and insulating layers for cool nights and mornings. Bring a swimsuit for dipping in the river!
*There is poison oak on the sides of some of the trails we ride in Oakridge. Bring precautionary measures or extra-clothing if you are sensitive to poison oak.
After meeting your guides at Cog Wild Headquarters, you’ll jump in the van and head over to Oakridge. We’ll make a pit stop along the way for dinner. Once we arrive at the campground, we will set up and settle in for the night under the canopy of giant trees.
After a great fuel-filled breakfast we will hit the trails! Today you will conquer the Sawtooth Struggle, shuttling up to gorgeous Lake Timpanogas and riding further into the hills for high alpine riding, gritty ridges, and the steep but sultry trail to hidden Indigo Lake.
Mileage: 15-20 miles.
The second day we will ride from camp along the Middle Fork Trail. We love this trail because it has a little bit of everything. Not only is the scenery gorgeous but the undulating trail with technical and intermediate sections of the trail will keep you guessing and thoroughly enjoying yourself.
Mileage: 20-34 miles
Today we will reluctantly pack up camp and head over to one of our favorite outskirt gems – Moon Point trail. Always a crowd pleaser, this fun descent through a variety of climate zones will have you begging for more – and more we will give! We can shuttle this ripping trail as many times as you can handle before we head back home.
Mileage: 10-30 miles
