Consider one of Oregon's most beautiful stretches of scenic highway, The Aufderheide was recently nominated for one of Oregon's special Scenic Bikeways. This is an epic 60 mile road bike ride from Blue River to Oakridge. Terwilliger Hot Springs is near Blue River and McCreedy Hot Springs is near Oakridge. In addition to road biking, it is equally beautiful for... More
