Do you have any good trails down there or places to explore. I've been wanting to head down there and check out that area. I've been in Oregon (Eugene) for 7 years now and still havn't really explored anything down there except for I-5

Wheeling everywhere. 140 is a good area with Hepsi mountain, 2815 (Robinson butte) and the 37 road. To the south, Wagner creek will take you up around the Pacific crest trail and will drop you into Beaver creek below Applegate lake. Lots of pretty scenery up there. North, top of 227 through South Umpqua is pretty much a point and shoot operation. South Umpqua will push you north to 138 around Steamboat. From there you can go over the mountain to Oak Ridge. Many of these old logging roads will swing you East through Trail to 62 up in the Prospect area. Good wheeling out of Salt creek, which will drop you into Butte Falls or Lake creek which will send you over Shale City to Dead Indian in the Howard Prairie lake area (Buck Prairie). You might want to get a Meskner map from Joes. Unfortunately, during the Clinton administration there was a dedicated drive to gate many access roads which can lead to some disapointingly short wheeling trips.

I hear ya jd, took a drive last week after taking a peek at some areial maps, went up to jump off joe creek in hugo to scout this road i found,
starting point/ending point both on jump off joe creek with quite a bit of twists and turns up in the hills
decided first to check entry/exit points before going on said excursion and found the exit blocked with blm gate!
would have had to backtrack to starting point to get out! anyway how are those prospect trails? i've been wanting to head up there for awhile now
and this meskner map? is this a county or state map?

The prospect ORV area is a lot of fun but needs to be hit fairly early due to dust. However, the rest of that area is strung with literally hundreds of old logging and access roads that will send you in about every direction. The only regulation to these is the use of a insured vehicle. A good first time base camp is river bridge camp ground north of Prospect n 62. The river is stocked here which can provide a nice trout meal for dinner. Once you have spent some time exploring, you will find a ton of great places to camp. Just remember to tread lightly. Folks have abused most areas causing the closures we are seeing today. Feel free to give me a holler if you want to go out some weekend.

Well, not new to the area but new to trailing I,m interested in a weekend run locally. I,ve got my tj about were I want it and it's time to take it out. have gone a few places around but would like to go as a group. Thought going to gold beach via galice would be a good run once the snow has been plowed. Any Ideas or concerns?

At the rate we're going, I don't think bear camp road will ever be clear Pretty country up there. Just be sure you get the right turn off. We took a two family trip through there a few years ago. Took the first turn off by mistake and led everybody on a merry drive around Onion mountain. My buddy to this day takes great joy in recounting my momentary lapse in navigation.
