    TR: 10 Day MTB Tour in Oregon, Days 5 - 6

    Trip Report Continued. . .

    French Pete CG is a nice place right alongside the South Fork MacKenzie River.

    Today we go up and over to Oakridge. We had to revise our original plan to take 2 days on forest roads with a bombing descent into Oakridge on the Alpine Trail. Instead we will go up the Aufderheide Byway following the SF MacKenzie.

    And down the Middle Fork of the South Fork of the Willamette River

    Nearing Oakridge we passed another covered bridge.

    Between the covered bridge and Oakridge there was a blackberry patch and we stopped and gorged on some delicious blackberries.

    We then rolled into Oakridge and we stopped at the Brewers Union for a much deserved beer, or 2. There we met 2 bikepackers who were riding the Oregon Timber Trail. They were grabbing dinner and we bought them a beer. They were heading to Salmon Cr CG tonite and going to ride Bunchgrass Ridge to Waldo Lake tomorrow, an 8,000 climb. WOW.

    After the beers we headed over to the Arbor Inn Motel where we will spend a layover day.
