I will be camping at Honeyman State Park July 30-August 3 and would like to meet up with some locals to show me some good trails in the area. It would be cool to hook up with some experienced guys on the dunes also. I am from Langley B.C.
You do know that Honeyman doesn't have direct dune access then right? Not a huge deal, you can just go back up to South Jetty day use, but I just wanted to clarify so you weren't disappointed. I may be there, but wouldn't be in a Jeep. Dunefest is always a blast though!
Not too sure about any actual wheeling trails around there, but there is some Forest Service roads East of town. North Fork of the Siuslaw River has lots of roads and a couple campgrounds. You can head east and go through the Coast Range towards Monroe/ Eugene area or head more NE towards Alsea River. As far as the Dunes, there is some trails on the tree islands that you can take. they are under the trees and get you out of the wind. There is also some trails towards the beach. Coast Guard Road runs North/South and is a few miles long. There is a few trails through the trees and low dunes east of the beach on the North End. Lots of whoops so it's slow going. Make sure you have a whip with a flag and a permit or you could get a hefty fine. Just stop in at either the Sportsman or the Yamaha shop and they can hook you up.
What permit is required. I have a Oregon ATV sticker, along with a NW forest pass, plus a WA discover pass, and a nat parks pass. Getting a little tired of buying all these passes to use PUBLIC land
In Oregon for now
