Trail Information

Highlights

Powerline #4D combines some interesting, tight segments of trail through the forest with a stretch of gravel access road as it follows the high tension power lines toward the coast. A fun and challenging optional section is available for those who want to attempt a reasonably difficult stretch of trail with few significant risks. There are good views near Waypoint 4 looking back to the east along the power lines.

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

Powerline Trail (all sections) 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.
