Overview

Knob Loop is one of five 4x4 trails and part of the Nicolai Mountain ORV Park located in the Clatsop State Forest, just 8 miles west of Clatskanie, Oregon. The trail winds about 2 miles through old-growth forest and can be a challenge with all the tree root systems especially when visiting in the spring or late fall when standing mud and water can really be expected. During this write-up, the author did have to winch out of one obstacle but for the most part, this trail was very fun and challenging in June. Please do not attempt to bypass any part of the trail and be ready for recovery if attempted.
