The best and most legal spot to wheel in Oregon is about an hour north of where you are in the Tillamook State Forest.

http://www.oregon.gov/ODF/tillamooks...hvtrails.shtml

You will need a $10 permit http://www.oregon.gov/OPRD/ATV/permit_vendors.shtml

and a Map of the trails http://www.oregon.gov/ODF/tillamooks...s/TSFOHV09.pdf

In Oregon McMinville is not BFE LMAO many more places farther from the Big city LOL

In McMinnville (or Mac) you're fairly close to the Brown's Camp OHV and Tillamoook State Forest. Both have a lot of trails and there's lots of info online. BLM/Forest Service will have info too. If you have an updated Cali OHV sticker you're covered, otherwise you'll need an Oregon one. I'd offer to hit a trail with you but my rig is still in "project" mode

Edit - What she said ^

sounds good guys, had some dude hit me up at gas station that was violating my rig with his eyes and that seemed like a tweeker or meth head saying he'd take me to some trails but my gutt says trouble. We are almost done finishing a job at the Aviation Museum dealing with the IMAX theater so if we finish tomorrow i might have time thursday to check out those spots, as far as OHV sticker i have the yearly Adventure Pass from California is that what your talking about?

The ATV must have a resident state ATV/OHV operating permit or a State of Oregon ATV operating permit to operate the ATV on designated ATV areas. A State of Oregon ATV operating permit may be issued for all terrain vehicles owned by a resident of another state that does not have a permitting program.

There's some good spots over in Bend area ( Central Oregon ) too... lots of rock crawling there. Most places are going to be covered in snow for another month or so though.
