The Oregon Timber Trail is a 670-mile bikepacking route crossing Oregon from California to the Columbia River Gorge and consists of more than 50 percent single-track. Sound amazing? Well it is, thanks to a lot of people pouring their love of the outdoors and cycling into it. Even more exciting is that the 2018 Event Calendar for the Oregon Timber Trail is out. This years activities cover a wide range of events from cooking in the backcountry (yay!), to slideshows, to weekend-long certifications, trail stewardship events and even a fun Grand depart ride! What are you doing this summer? To donate your time, money or learn more about the trail visit oregontimbertrail.org. (images courtesy of VanWeelden Creative).
