McKenzie River Packraft Adventure

I've been dreaming about a trip like this for a while and I finally made it happen this weekend on the McKenzie River. This trip has everything: physical exhaustion, technical whitewater, dogs, sleeping's just perfect.

Corvallis to Coast

I decided to take advantage of a nice weather window this past winter and ride the C2C route, along with a friend and my dog, Charlie. The C2C is a 60-mile hiking and biking route that connects Corvallis to Ona Beach on the Oregon coast. The bike route travels through remote areas of the coast range on mostly gravel roads, which makes it an excellent overnight bikepacking trip that you can begin right from town.

Bikepacking Overnight in the Old Cascade Crest Trail area

We took a chance with the wildfire smoke and headed out for an overnight in an area that up until the day before had been closed due to its proximity to the Bruler Fire. We got lucky and it wasn't smokey, and there were no people.
