National Public Radio recently highlighted Oakridge as part of the State of the Re:Union series. To learn more about the town of Oakridge and its ongoing transformation from a mill town to an outdoor recreation hub, visit the State of the Re:Union and listen to the podcast.
Mountain Biking isn't the only activity that brings people to Oakridge. Some of the best trout fishing in the northwest can be found on the Middle Fork of the Willamette River which flows right by Oakridge on its way down to the Willamette Valley floor. More excellent fishing and boating can be enjoyed on nearby mountain lakes and reservoirs.
There are also some spectacular road rides and many beautiful hiking trails in the area. And in the winter, Willamette Pass, one of the regions most popular ski areas, is just a short drive up Highway 58.
