    Vacation Ride Suggetions- Oregon

    Hey folks,
    I'm traveling thru Oregon with my daughter. We are coming from the north on I-5. I'm looking for ride suggestions that may be close to or worth a detour off the I-5.

    My daughter is very new to MTB, but she is pretty tough. I would love to get her out on some super scenic rides to get her stoked. I have heard good things about Bend, OR, but would love to hear the "local's" favorite rides.

    Maybe any other scenic detours we should stop at would be appreciated too! We just want to see as many trees as possible. Being from Las Vegas, NV it will be a new experience for us.

    Thanks.

    Bend would be great. It would also be a detour.

    Marys Peak is the high point in the coast range. It would be a tough ride for your daughter but on a good day you can see Cascade peaks from Mt. Hood to Diamond Peak from the summit.

    I think an out-and-back on the McKenzie River would be about her speed. The lava at the top would be a challenge. Also the lower middle fork of the Willamette, in Oakridge, as an out-and-back.

    Alsea Falls has Springboard trail which is a beginner-friendly flow trail.

    The Mackenzie River trail would give you that lush ferny rainforest environment as seen in the Empire Strikes Back
