Oakridge Oregon Trail Conditions:
Hey it’s Aubrey with the Dec 7th update on the Oakridge area trail conditions.
We have had sunny skies for the last couple of weeks and most trails are still riding well! Chance of showers later this week but temps should still pleasant.
The snow has been falling up high. Several inches of snow reported on top of Dead Mountain, expect snow levels around 3000′ and dress accordingly. The Middle Fork Trail is a good option for these conditions and the fall colors are still lovely.
A couple feet of snow has fallen on Willamette Pass and we have heard reports of great backcountry ski conditions. Enjoy and be safe!
Here’s a link to the NOAA forecast for Oakridge . Keep in mind the forecast is for the town of Oakridge, the trailheads we shuttle to are at higher elevations, so expect colder temperatures (5-10 degrees colder) at the top, where the rides begin. We recommend taking a long sleeve jersey on clear days, and a rain jacket on any cloudy or misty days, even if it feels warm where you get picked up, it may be remarkably cooler,snd sometimes much wetter up top.
Our official 2020 shuttle season has come to a close. Thank you to everyone for making this unprecedented season a success! Of course being outdoors is key to a healthy body and mind, so let’s all continue to enjoy our beautiful forests and take care of each other.
