Description: Although not technically in Oakridge, the McKenzie River Trail is an incredible trail to ride if you happen to be on a road trip. We would not necessarily leave Oakridge to go and ride this trail as the riding in Oakridge is also mind blowing, but if you can manage to pass through the McKenzie River area on your travels this is a ride that will not disappoint. The ride is quite long and very technical in some points, but it is mostly downhill. You will need to arrange a shuttle or your own vehicle drop as the ride is 40km one way and is really only meant to be ridden in one direction. If possible, avoid riding the McKenzie River Trail on weekends as it is used by hikers as well and can get busy.
