Destination Trail Run: Dead Mountain/Oakridge Triple Summit Challenge Preview Run

June 26 @ 9:00 am 3:00 pm

This month’s Destination Trail Run will be Dead Mountain, located in the trail running capital of the PNW: Oakridge, Oregon.

We will start at the Dead Mountain Trailhead. From there, you will have the option to run up the Dead Mountain trail, which climbs around 3,000 feet in 5.5 miles. The summit is well worth it though! You will be rewarded with 180 degree views of the Willamette National Forest below you. If you are planning on participating in the Oakridge Triple Summit Challenge on July 8th-10th this is the trail you will be running on during the second day of the stage race.

If climbing isn’t your thing you can cross the road and run on the flat but scenic Salmon Creek trail.

If you choose to run Dead Mountain, it is an out and back trail that would total around 11 miles. If you do the Salmon Creek Trail, you can do a 3- to 5-mile out and back or you can do an 8-mile loop. I will bring a map to show you the loop.

All levels are welcome! Let’s enjoy this beautiful Sunday on the trails with friends!

After the run we will meet at 3 Legged Crane Brewery for some tasty drinks and food.
