Tire Mountain Trail

The Tire Mountain Trail is an example of a wild area accessible by foot or mountain bike. It is maintained by Forest Service personnel as well as by mountain bikers such as the Oakridge/Westfir trails group and Disciples of Dirt mountain bike club from Eugene. 

The trail is accessed via dirt roads leaving from Westfir and the Office covered bridge. It is a hearty climb on foot or bike, but the views are fabulous. The wildflowers along this trail are spectacular, appearing at different elevations year-round. The birding opportunities also run year-round: eagles, buzzards, hawks and songbirds are often sighted.
