Highlights

Highlight: Archers Firebreak #28H / Tillamook State Forest
Archers Firebreak #28H starts out and ends mild but in between the trail can get pretty wild. The trail is a continuation of the Archers Firebreak series of trails that march west along Archers Ridge. On days with decent weather, a huge view of the Oregon Coast Range await along the trail. Adding to the excitement, a challenging dug-out section of trail with a deeply cut center rut that is eager suck unwary vehicles into its hold. Along the way, the trail passes through second growth forest and recent clearcuts offering up scenic views of the Jordan Creek drainage and great memories.

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.
