Westfir Office Bridge

Office Covered Bridge Viewed from Portal Park

Westfir, home to some 250 people, is nestled along the lower portions of the narrow North Fork river valley just above its confluence with the Middle Fork of the Willamette River. It is located about one mile east of State Highway 58 and is a four-mile drive west of the City of Oakridge.

Westfir was formed as a mill town at the beginning of the twentieth century, and has quite a history prior to its official incorporation in 1979.  The Office Covered Bridge spans the North Fork and is the longest in the state, and the only covered bridge in the state that has a separate covered pedestrian walkway. For more on the history of Westfir, visit our History page.

Westfir is located on the southern edge of the Willamette National Forest. These public lands provide a wide variety of outdoor recreation opportunities including trail hiking and biking, horseback riding, lake and river fishing, hunting, kayaking, rafting, camping, and off-highway vehicle use at the nearby Huckleberry Flats OHV trail system. Our annual Bridge Lighting event attracts more then 500 people each year. Check out the YouTube video courtesy of Travel Lane County.
