Lawler is a great trail that is a little more technical than most Oakridge trails tend to be. There are a few big climbing moments during the duration of the trail so it’s not all fun and games. The trail itself dives you through some magnificent forests of old growth fir, hemlock, cedar, maple, and ferns. There are a few steep down pitches and chutes, some fun shale sections, and an uphill climb on which most people hike-a-bike. Also expect some sharp switchbacks to keep you focused on your way down to the new-school flow-trail finish.
