    Assuming you have access to a car and all day to drive/ride there's plenty of options but barring that there's not much really close to Lebanon.

    McKenzie River trail is a little over an hour away from Lebanon and would be the first ride I would send a traveller stuck in Lebanon to. Or it's a little under an hour to Blackrock if you're interested in freeride. Both of these rides get plenty of press.

    Back in the 90s I used to do a ride on the Little North Fork of the Santiam River in the Elkhorn area that was pretty fun. I was living in Mill City at the time, and we had a few little trails we developed at the time right around Mill City, but I'm not sure if they were expanded or abandoned.

    Don't know if there is much information available about either, these days, ,though.

    Absolutely the best option. I was forgetting about heading up over Tombstone to the top of the MKR from Lebanon. Certainly his best option from Lebanon. Although, I would be surprised if there aren't some little local trails around Lebanon/Sweet Home.

    Oakridge is certainly within an easy drive, too, then.

    Have fun.

    I can't believe no one has suggested Mary's Peak...
