Farms, vineyards, restaurants, art studios, inn's, horses, golf, antiques, alpacas, jewelry, fish hatchery's, hazelnuts, wolf sanctuaries and nursery's are just a few places you will find on The Oregon Country Trails! With over 65 rural businesses, tours and adventures, these trails are self guided driving tours that offer a bit of the country to our visitors to Oregon.
Follow a reservoir near villages in Lane county and visit a bio-dynamic garden filled with organic produce or pick fruit from trees in an orchard and bring your basket to fill with our Oregon berries. Take your time and mosey along the route and see things the average traveler doesn't get a chance to see. Staying at one our Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild inns will also provide you an opportunity to linger longer and enjoy all these trails have to offer. With several new trails being formed as I type this blog, there will soon be 16 routes to choose from. By the end of this week, there will be 4 new Oregon Country Trails in Linn county alone.
The four trails already formed in Lane County are:
Alsea Valley Country Trail
Fern Ridge Country Trail
Long Tom Country Trail
River Road Country Trail
It has been an awesome opportunity to be a part of helping to form our trails in Linn County. Four new trails will be formed by the end of the week and they will offer Lavender Farms, organic fruit and vegetable gardens/stands, restaurants that use sustainable practices, local bakeries, an artist studio where a carousel is being created, seed farms, cafes and bed and breakfasts! Two of the inns on one of the newest trails, The Willamette River Country Trail are Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild members!
So, for a taste of what it's like to live here, to see what the average traveler doesn't get to experience, stay at one our inn's and travel an Oregon Country Trail! Culinary travel via the back roads, romantic weekend getaways or taking the kids out to pet the sheep...it's all good here...in Oregon on our Oregon Country Trail!
