Trail Information

Highlights

Firebreak One is a great introduction to the Tillamook State Forest and the Brown's Camp Area. As soon as the trail plunges into the moss-covered, dripping wet forest of the Oregon Coast Range, the adventure begins. The trail winds through second growth timber on the way to the top of the ridge where it suddenly bursts through the trees into a vast clear-cut with sweeping views to the west. The trail turns into a gravel road on top of the ridge and continues through a mix of second and third growth forest, and clear-cuts on its way down to one of the main roads through the forest.

Fun trail to start off with. I took it from the parking lot, and the drive up is the roughest part, but still easily managed in a stock 4x4. I saw a Honda civic at the top of the hill, but I think they came from a different direction.
