Shotgun Creek OHV

Headed out in the rainy weather today to check out the Shotgun Creek OHV park in Marcola, OR. Majority of the park is designated to quads and motorcycles but there is a small run for jeeps. At this point I'm running extremely stock. Little did we know that the trail would have a 10 foot rutted out drop and a mud bog at the bottom. None of us were ready for that kind of wheelin' so we headed back the opposite way.

All in all if was a pretty fun trip, snowed on us up there. Anyone in the Corvallis/Eugene area I suggest you check it out and see if you can do the whole thing!

-Ryan

I've done that drop a few times. I run 2" lift and 32's and made it. Going down is easy going back up is the problem. The end of the trail is just past that so you didn't miss anything. You have to watch out up there. There is a lot of trails that are off limits. There is a few more good ones if you head up over the ridge to the other side. Next time your down this way let me know. I have a guy that goes up there almost every weekend and knows all of it by heart.

Shotgun Creek

I was wondering if you got to try out the full shotgun creek because I was thinking about giving it a go. Is it even really worth the trip or no. You might want to try Noonday Trail

Look up "southern oregon jeeps" on facebook. This trail is out of the Eugene area so it's a long drive from Oregon State.

Google map it from your house to Marcola OR. The original post was from 2009 so you might not hear back from him.
