ATCA in Oakridge, Oregon

This is THE ride to do in Oakridge, Oregon. Probably my favorite ride of all time. It took me 5 hours with a wrong turn included. I’ve never done a ride that aligns so perfectly with my mantra of “Pain & Pleasure”.

I took the 10am Cog Wild shuttle (4 person minimum) from the Willamette Mercantile to the Alpine trail, then hit Tire Mountain, Cloverpatch and back to Alpine.

LOGITICS

  • I caught the shuttle to the top of Alpine trail from Cog Wild at the Willamette Mercantile in Oakridge (minimum 4 people to run the shuttle).
  • I relied heavily on Trailforks during my ride but still made wrong turns.
  • I brought 3 liters of water and ran out before I met back up with Alpine.
  • There is a water fountain and bathrooms at the end of the ride.
