Trail Information

Highlights

University Firepower Part 2 may start out as an easy gravel road but it packs in a few surprises along the way. There are tight, twisty sections in dense forest where it is easy to become disoriented. Never fear though because all dirt paths lead to the end of the trail. Halfway through the trail, explorers are presented with a choice: the high road scrambles up the hill while the low road scuttles around the side. Choose your way wisely based on your vehicle's abilities and the trail conditions because the high road can be unforgiving if a mistake is made. The trail ends near where Cedar Tree trail begins which is an excellent place to head next after finishing University Firepower Part 2.

Due to high fire danger, the Tillamook State Forest is closing all OHV trails as of 1am on Friday June 25th. At this time the gravel roads in the TSF are still open for OHV use but all the trails are shut down. http://tillamookstateforest.blogspot.com/2021/06/fire-danger-moving-to-high-effective.html

Univ Firepower Trail is Open and in great shape. There are some narrow spots that could prove challenging for vehicles wider/longer than a Jeep Wrangler, but certainly nothing too crazy. I find this is a perfect trail for "newbies" or someone getting used to wheeling a new vehicle.
