Olallie TrailLEABURG: A newly recognized challenge to experienced riders has been added to attractions that can be promoted to mountain bikers. That was the message Randy Dreiling had when the McKenzie River Chamber of Commerce met last week at Ike’s Pizza. Dreiling, the groups executive director, said he hopes the Olallie Loop Trail will, “Not only  relieve pressure on the McKenzie River Trail but also get people to stay here longer.” In addition to Ollalie, Dreiling said there are four other back country routes that riders need to learn are also available.
