The parking lot is really small, so they divert overflow parking to city hall a half a mile away and you’re walking along the side of the road. I had my dogs with me, so my biggest concern was how their feet would be on the asphalt on the way back. They were fine, but I also carried one who has very sensitive feet over the asphalt on the way back. The trail was pretty empty despite the parking lot being full. We only saw two groups of people. It was a nice trail, but I don’t think I would be in a hurry to do it again.

The first 4 miles from Westfir are in great condition - Obviously, maintained and cleaned up recently. The last mile though has yet to be cleaned up. 17 trees cross the trail plus 3 dried mud slides make the footing sketchy. The entire trail is passable with these mentioned obstacles. Overall a nice hike along a beautiful stretch of river!!

Did this trail 6/29. I could only make it about 1.5 miles in due to downed trees. The trail is very nice with mild elevation gain. You will have to climb over a few downed trees. Overall I hope the trail gets cleared out and I will attempt again at a later date.

Beautiful day. Lots of wildflowers left in the Meadows.

Nice but longer than I thought

Really fun hike. Lightly travelled. A few mountain bikes, one trail runner with a sweet dog, and one other hiker on a 5 hour hike and this was a warm spring Sunday! The trail was in good shape through Road 1910 and 30+ minutes beyond. Too many downed trees kept me from getting to Road 1912. A couple of paths down to the water which was flowing nicely. Very little incline/decline which is what I was looking for. Definitely a do again.

beautiful sunny day with all the glorious wild flowers in bloom!

I hiked the Tire Mountain trail in mid-May, following the route shown on this trail's page. I give it 4 stars mostly for the "steep-slope meadows" and the wildflowers that strive there. There ARE a some views when the trail crosses the meadows; mostly, this means looking down on the valley around Oakridge, sighting Diamond Peak on the southeast horizon and, looking northeast at one point on the Alpine Trail, spotting the 3 sisters in the distance. As mentioned in other posts, the top of Tire Mountain offers a spacious and flat area, albeit w/o views, that can be a good snack/lunch spot to break the hike. I was a tad early in the season for the full wildflowers show but there were still enough "early birds" to make the 8-ish miles hike worth every step. While I was the first at the parking lot and on the trail at 8:30, bikers and hikers were a bit thick for the last 1.2 miles or so on the Alpine Trail portion before returning to the parking lot shortly after noon. The trail itself can be broken down in three sections: the Alpine Trail section (1.2 miles), the Tire Mountain traverse section (2 miles) and the Ascent to the top (.5 miles). The first two sections follow and cross ridgelines and are globally horizontal-ish with low grade roller-coaster profiles. The meadows are all found in the first 2 miles as the trail alternately goes through wooded and barren spots in a rather pleasant manner (never too shaded, never too hot...at least in May). After the well maintained (and more heavily traveled) Alpine trail, the 2 miles traverse to the foot of Tire Mountain is a narrower track with slightly more encroaching vegetation. The ascent to the top, via a handful of switchbacks, is even a bit more narrow and attention to footing a tad more important; this ascent is also the only really sustained uphill. That is however just for about .5 miles. Lastly, NF road 1910 was in good shape: the 8 miles from Aufderheide Dr / Hwy 19 were negotiable by any vehicle, with just a few shallow potholes, a gravel surface (some washboard) and a gentle grade. The parking area can easily accommodate more than a dozen cars just by the trailhead and more alongside the road.

Lovely, shaded trail that’s within stone’s throw of the beautiful river. It was minimally muddy and only washed out in a few places. Technically it’s shared with mountain bikes but I only encountered one. Bring a picnic to enjoy back at the park at Office Bridge!

The trail is blocked in many locations and I only made it a mile in. I wouldn't attempt it again until it gets cleaned up.

Great January day hiking. Temps perfect. Trail muddy as expected. Water was flowing fast along trail.

I did the summit via the trail head on the west side, off forest rd 5824. 5824 is off North shore rd, which follows lookout point and the North fork of the Willamette, across the river from hwy 58. It's not recommended to take a passenger car up this rd, but is passable with an AWD or 4x4. It's a cool offroad drive up the mountain. Just follow the "main" rd 5824 without turning off and you can't miss it. You will see a hiker symbol on the left next to a small parking area. From there the hike is 8.7 miles round trip and is an easy to moderate hike. Tons of giant old growth fir and cedars from 3' to 10' in diameter. Great hidden gem on that side, but still not a great view on the summit. Worth it for the trees alone. Great hike!

Singletrack Mountain bike trail. For $30-35 two shuttle co in Oakridge will drop you off about 13 miles up. Then you can ride down to Westfir the red covered bridge parking area. Nice views and great fun there's still climbing you have to do and about 3 or 4 Hairpin switchbacks that could endo you off your bike. Intermediate to Difficult rating.

I’m not sure if the map of this trail needs to be edited, or at least re-designated, but as of today (08/06/2018), this trail describes a simple gravel road. I took pictures to show that the directions lead to a somewhat larger than average turnout at the head of this road. There is no trailhead marker, nor any designated signs along the road. The gravel is a little coarse, so it is possible to hike, but not very comfortable. It is also a steady incline most of the way up until you turn around and head back—and the turn-around point is little more than an odd fork in the road. It is plenty shaded, and it might be somewhat scenic if you come earlier in the season; but most of the wildflowers were past bloom when I went, and there wasn’t much else to look at. The road does seem to follow alongside the creek most of the way, but there’s only one point of easy, direct access, and that point is very early in the trail, at what might be called a campsite only very generously.

The Good: Definitely a trail for wildflowers but offers plenty of variety in scenery as you move between the forest and meadows. Not terribly strenuous at all but an easy going and very enjoyable hike. Obstacles: We did have a few friendly encounters with mountain bikes, overall bike traffic was minimal. We encountered a few muddy sections of the trail but nothing serious. Getting there: The last 6+ miles of the drive are a constant climb up a single-lane, gravel road with several turn outs. Not at all difficult as long as you slow down and enjoy the surroundings. We had no problem getting there in a minivan.

A fantastic hike for wildflowers! You find them right away at the trailhead, and every turn brings more. We didn't go all the way to the mountain, just to what are referred to as "meadows", which are hillside gardens with many wonderful wildflowers. The second meadow had a mass of Arrowleaf balsamroot, and that was a good point to turn around at. Lots of mountain bikes, so be careful on the narrow trail

This was a wonderful hike! Got to the top of the rock in two hours and enjoyed it the entire way! I saw about 7 cyclists in a group heading down and 3 other hikers. Would definitely recommend this hike
