Cascades Outdoor Center

Guided river rafting, hiking, snowshoeing, mountain biking and daily shuttle services are offered by this family-friendly mountain outfitter. Year-round explore the Willamette National Forest, the headwaters of the Willamette River and the trails around Oakridge – known as the Mountain Biking Capital of the Northwest. Tour highlights include summer “forest bathing” trips, stargazing kayak tours and winter snowshoeing treks to Oregon’s second highest waterfall. The guides are friendly, professional and knowledgeable – and eager to share their enthusiasm for the Cascades. Trips can be customized for all ages, abilities and interests. The Cascades Outdoor Center is based at the Westfir Lodge, just 45 minutes from Eugene.
