Oakridge to Rainbow (Aufderheide Memorial Drive) -
A smooth ribbon of pavement, a cathedral of trees above and the sound of a rushing river beside you… it doesn’t get much better than this road. You can ride the Aufderheide with equal pleasure from either direction (as a 130-mile round-trip it’s grueling); it’s a classic up-and-over, letting you work hard for the first half and enjoy the fruits of your labors for the rest. Along the way you’ll follow a fork of the Willamette River and pass Cougar Reservoir; consider a dip in the Terwilliger Hot Springs near the reservoir.
