Destination Trail Run: Dead Mountain

June 17, 2023 @ 9:00 am 4:00 pm

For our June trail run we will be exploring the beautiful trails of Oakridge! The Dead Mountain trail has it all: steep switchbacks, lush forest, and a great view of the Willamette National Forest at the top.


9:00 AM-9:15 AM: Meet at Run Hub to carpool to Oakridge.
10:00 AM: Meet at Greenwaters Park in Oakridge. Address: 48362 OR-58, Oakridge, OR 97463
10:15 AM: We will be starting at Greenwaters park and running the Salmon Creek trail. This is a flat section. The Salmon Creek Trail will connect to the Dead Mountain trail. This climbs to the top where you will have a tough but rewarding climb before bombing back down the trail!

This will be an out and back, with suggested mileage options of 6 miles, 12 miles, and 18 miles. If you do the 6-miler, you will be able to just stay flat the entire time.

After the run we will go to Three Legged Crane for some beer and food. The brewery is only a half mile from Greenwaters park.

We will be doing some video taping during the run so if you do not want to be video taped just let me know before the run!

All levels welcome!
