Well when I get my lift do you want to meet up and go there? Is it a spot we can go cut cookies? Thats what would be fun. Send me a picture of google maps or something

Im 17yrs old and have owned my Wrangler since the day i turned 16. Bought it myself. i do some moderate wheeling with my buddies when we go camping in the summer and i am looking for some new spots in the Portland/Mt.Hood area to go wheeling.

If your headin out...mind if me and a friend tag along?

If you find a place to offroad, that would be great. I got a few friends with rigs that they can wheel. My friends explorer has got 6" and he would like to go. Wagonwheel park isnt an offroad park at all anymore, it sucks anyways.

Hey guys,
My club is working on getting "legal" trails up in the Yacolt burn up north of Camas and east of vancouver. There currently is NO legal places to wheel up there yet. We have over 2500 volunteer hours and over 2 years in this project. We are looking at making it similar to browns camp with everything from easy trails to extremely difficult.
We are always looking for help in recovering abandoned and burned up vehicles up there ect. We are making great progress throughout the government channels. We should know something towards fall of 09.

If you guys want more info about it go to www.Pistonswild.com

Please if you know anyone that "wheels" up there please tell them to stay on the gravel roads only. The more damage done up there off the gravel roads hurts our cause. Thanks guys

Feel free to pm with any questions

Lance

Sorry for the long Post but here it is Please read!

From my past experience Promatory is closed to anything but street legal vehicles that stay on the gravel roads. It was a 100 dollar lesson for me a few years ago. Had there been signs ect I would have never unloaded my Dirt bike there. As far as I know it is still that way.

My club Pistons wild has been working with Government officials in SW Washington for over 2 years now trying to get "legal" trails opened up in the
Yacolt Burn area that is north of Camas and east of Vancouver. This area is also known as 4 corners, jones creek ect. If you know of anyone that goes up in that area to "wheel" please tell them to stay on only the the gravel roads and not to go "wheeling" at all up there until we can get trails opened for the general public to enjoy. We are in the process of getting this in ink and we need all your help to stay out of all closed area's for wheeling. Get a hold of myself or post on our forum and we will provide you with legal spots to wheel along with maps ect.

Bad behavior hurts us all. I understand the frustration that we all have alot of money in our rigs and want to use them as much as possible. We have all been wheeling in places that we may or may not have known that were not "legal" areas to be, myself included when I was younger.

Please visit our website at www.Pistonswild.com for more information on the Yacolt Burn project we have been working on for over 2 years now. We have over 2500 volunteer hours in this so far and we want to build something similar to browns camp within a short driving distance from Portland/Vancouver areas.

We also have a forum at our website with updates and info for all the projects our club does ect. Go check it out and we are always looking for more people to help us out. More hands make the work go easier and faster.

Thank you for your help and cooperation

Lance

It seems like most of you guys are up north, but if there is anyone down south (I'm near medford/ashland, 30 miles north of the california border) that is looking for some good places, try Elk Creek, Salt Creek, and elderberry flats. It seems like they block off a new section of Elk Creek every time I go up there, but there are still a fair number of good spots to go.

I've never really been up there. I think I've been to Portland twice, and Corvallis once, but otherwise I've stayed down here in my little corner of oregon. There are a lot of good wheeling spots down here, but we have this nasty, sticky clay that can really gum up your truck. If you dont clean it off within a few days of wheeling, it gets baked onto the truck (especially in the summer) and is damn near impossible to get off.
