Timpanogas to Waldo Lake via Oakridge. Legendary trail systems, lush green forests, and roaring rivers.

After leaving the dry, remote Fremont Tier you'll cross over the alpine lake dotted Cascade Range and descend into the tiny MTB mecca of Oakridge. After refuelling at Willamette Mountain Mercantile and the Brewers Union Local 180 you climb the feared Bunchgrass Ridge before circling Waldo Lake's serene shoreline. 

This tier presents a dramatic change of scenery and dozens of epic singletrack spur options. Enjoy the shade, the soft loamy forest floors, and moss covered icy springs bubbling from the hillside. Peel off the main route and ride Windy Ridge, Moon Point, Larison Rock, Heckletooth, Alpine, and more.
