Established in 2018, Trans Cascadia Excursions is an extension of the PNW Backcountry Race Trans-Cascadia. We specialize in guided mountain bike trips and shuttles within Oregon and Washington on some of the most remote singletrack found in the United States. We operate within the Willamette National Forest, including the Old Cascades Crest in the North Willamette, McKenzie River Area in the Central Willamette, and the entire Oakridge network of trails in the South of the Willamette National Forest. We also offer trips in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest around Mt. St Helens and Mt. Adams and the endless opportunities this forest provides.

We’re all about creating new experiences and providing a format that allows you to just ride your bike and relax. We want to show you something new, even if you’re from the PNW, we’ve got a ride that is sure to blow your mind. We’ve been exploring the PNW for over a decade, looking for the most remote places to take your mountain bike and we want to share these rides with you. Come out for a day, or days, and we’ll be sure to show you a good time!
