Willamette National Forest Mountain Bike Trails

The McKenzie and Willamette river areas are home to some of the best riding in the southern Cascade range, with some very popular, well known rides such as the McKenzie River Trail, King Castle, Hardesty, Larison, Lawler and Tire Mtn.

A wide variety of terrain ensures there is something for everyone.

Oakridge is centrally located in the Middle Fork RD, and like Leavenworth WA, Gov't Camp or Sisters, it makes for a great mountainbike base camp.

The Waldo lake area offers plenty of moderate terrain, and ties in with some Bend ranger district trails as well.

The northern half of the ranger district is not as well known for mountain biking but there are more trails to be listed from that area.
