Oregon NW offroading...

Anyone got any spots other than Browns camp, estacada, and wagon wheel?

by the way, estacada is closed down. I went there a couple days ago and they blocked off every entrance to a trail. THIS IS BULL ****

What was it before? I thought that it eventually connected up with Timothy Lake and then have little play spots along the way. Whats the point of closing it down if its going to be an OHV park, especially if its in the winter season (wet).

It was all Mt. Hood Nat'l Forest land, and nothing has closed down. As of '09, they will have some designated areas for folks to use... sort of like Brown's Camp up in TSF.

There are some established trails out there for Quads, Dual Sport, Jeeps, Horses, Hikers, etc... They have designated a number of them to be specific use areas, and will be giving us staging areas, campgrounds, etc..., over the next few years. Go to the Mt. Hood Nat'l Forest website and do some reading...you'll learn all about the plan. Yes we do lose some trails, but the bottom line is, that we aren't losing all of them...which is very important.

For the most part, what you are calling "Estacada" is just the back gravel road up to Timothy lake, which does get closed about this time of year (Hunting Season) due to the fact that they are about to get snow out there, and then that area becomes snowmobile trails.

When most folks think of wheeling out in Estacada, it is off of Hillockburn Road, and the official name is "Goat Mountain". This remains open, despite the fact that it is private land owned by the timber companies. They have to keep the road open for access to the radio tower on top.

It's the road that takes you to forest service road 45, which goes all the way to the top of Goat Mtn.

Look it up on Google Maps or Mapquest....

its really dissapointing at how few places there are around the portland area to go 4-wheeling. You would think that with the huge amount of unincorporated area's and massive national forests that there would be a large amount of places to go..... BUT NO!
