Excellent ride for letting the dog chase after us. Definitely slippery as it’s post Autumn and all the leaves, mud and ice make for technical areas. Still a beautiful area with plenty of options for enjoying a snack and the view.

About 40 minute drive outside of Oakridge be sure to stop at the old A&W before heading there.Started at Sand Prairie campground. Day use fee is $8 or you can tent camp for $14. Mostly flat meandering singletrack that goes through a nice deep fir tree forest. I was told it goes for about 30 miles along the river but not really next to the river about 150' parallel to it.
