Moving to Oregon

Later this year, probably around late August, I'll be moving to Colton, OR., a little town between Estacada and Molalla.

Whats there to do near by? places to wheel? off road clubs and the like? When I was up there last month I noticed a good amount of lifted XJs in the area so I assume there must be a place to wheel.

Ive read some about the Mt. Hood nat. forest near by, anything interesting to do in there? looking over some of the maps they show some roads accessible by 4x4s only. Those any fun? Even for more expedition style offroading/camping?

Also what the wheeling like? there is obviously mountains, hills, and some rocks, all of which we don't have in FL. Any more details you'll could give me?

And any odd vehicle laws I should be aware of?

I think the closest popular legal trails to there would be Tillamonk state forest or TSF as the locals call it. Do some googling of that name.

New trail being built on Mt. Hood National Forest called LaDee flat. For clubs in the area, go to pnw4wda.org, about us, clubs, Region 3. Tillamook is in the coast range west of Portland, and has trails from mild to wild. About 150 SE of Portland is Santiam Pass with a nasty trail called Quack Attack. 300 miles east is Virtue Flat over by Baker City, 5000 acres of open area and a bunch of trails some will leave you crying for the damage.

Dunes over at Sand Lake, and between Florence and Coos Bay, and another set in central Oregon out of Christmas Valley, about 100 mile se of Bend.


When usuing you rig as an Off Highway Vehicle on public land, you need to have the Oregon Class II ATV permit. Cost is $10.50 for 2 years, and a portion of the gas tax goes to fund areas for use. Find out more at Oregon Parks and Recreation, ATV button. You can get a booklet of rules, regs, and areas from them, or when you get the permit.
