Trail Information

Highlights

Hog's Back is a fun trail that follows the spine of a ridge and hides a few surprises. On the top of the ridge, a rock garden has been installed for anyone wishing to test their skills. The descent into the dense forest on the north end of the trail becomes tricky as the trees close in on the road. Full size vehicles are not recommended but most SUVs and light pickups can make it through by executing three point turns as needed. A big view to the north peeks through the trees as the road hugs the edge of a cliff overlooking a quarry. Hog's Back has a little of everything and is a worthwhile trail to explore in the Tillamook State Forest.

Fun, moderate difficulty trail. JLUR with 35" and 2.5in lift. not an issue except it's tight though. Definitely very tight corners and needed a spotter to make those turns.
