Show more info about Westfir

The crest of the Cascade Mountains marks the eastern boundary of Lane County.  Year-round the hilltops sparkle with azure-blue mountain lakes, a feast for the eyes whether seen from your ride up the chairlift or from the coziness of your campsite.  Nearby Salt Creek Falls is a wondrous sight with a well-maintained trail leading to the bottom of impressive cascade. During the summer, drive the Aufderheide segment of the West Cascades National Scenic Byway. The road traverses stunning old-growth forests, alpine meadows and wild and scenic rivers.

Westfir is located in Willamette Valley, the agricultural heart of Oregon where family farms grow everything from blueberries and hazelnuts to Christmas trees and tulips and some of the world's best pinot noir.
