ya there is some nice exploring to do out this dirction. I do a lot of "wonder where this road comes out at" trips behind Hull Oaks Lumber. We did several trips SE of Alsea Falls when we had all the snow. There use to be some seriously great motorcycle trails out there, but like everything else, it was abused and fenced off.
I'm currently trying to figure out the road #'s to go in there at Alsea Falls and come out on one of the roads west of Cheshire (I believe it pops out more near Triangle Lake area). The kid loves those trips, wife enjoys the scenery and I get to scout new/different hunting areas
. I always get a kick being on the back roads... I've come out on the backside of more locked gates and had to back-track more times that I can count. Course I can't find the back roads into my hunting areas to save my butt... lol...
I do the Cheshire route from Monroe often (beats the heck out of 99 when I'm not in a hurry).
