Guided rides with Cog Wild are a great way to get some epic riding and an insiders view of this former logging and mill town.
With a shuttle assisted guided ride we figure out the logistics and take you to the goods; you spend less time grinding up, and more time shredding down. We ride the classic trails: Alpine, Dead Mountain, Hardesty and Lawler, and take you to some of the lesser known gems including Timpanogas, Moon Point, Bunchgrass, Grasshopper, Tire Mountain, Cloverpatch and Eula.
Rental bikes are available at the Oakridge Bike Shop & Willamette Mountain Mercantile .
Guided Ride Options:
Coming to Oakridge with a crew? Book a van and guide for a full or half day. Traveling solo? Consider a guided ride on Alpine or Dead Mountain. If you have something else in mind, drop us a line, we’re here to fuel the stoke.
