Highlight: Archers Firebreak #28 / Tillamook State Forest
Archers Firebreak #28 is a fun and easy trail that curls down through a recent clear cut from the top of the ridge down to the saddle between Lyda Hill and Archers Ridge. A couple switchbacks on the first part of the trail are a great place to take video of an overlanding rig going on an adventure. This is a popular trail to connect between the trail network in the Browns Camp area (eastern third) of the Tillamook State Forest and the trails that are accessible from the Jordan Creek campground.

Douglas Van Bossuyt

Mapping Crew - Oregon

Douglas grew up riding in the back of pickups in Oregon and California. He comes from a long line of overlanders and adventurers dating back to the Mayflower and the Oregon Trail. During a stint working in Colorado, Douglas fell in love with the offroad scene and immediately gravitated toward the Toyota crowd. His first 4x4 was a 1988 Toyota 4runner nicknamed Goldilocks. After a year of running many of the iconic trails throughout the front range in the fully stock Goldilocks running on bald tires, it was time for an upgrade. Goldilocks went off to a new home and the Albino Rhino came home. The Albino Rhino is a built 1986 Toyota 4runner ready for any adventure anywhere at any time. During the week, Douglas works on systems engineering and architecture problems in California. Douglas also enjoys backpacking -- especially in the central Sierras in California -- scuba diving along the Oregon and California coasts, and riding his motorcycle on the Pacific Coast Highway. Most weeknights you can find Douglas under his truck in the driveway performing maintenance or fixing the latest trail damage.
