Trail Information

Highlights

The Ginsberg Point Trail is one of only a handful of 4x4 trails in the Trask OHV region of western Tillamook State Forest. Designated as an intermediate trail and comprised of several sections - this is the longest 4x4 trail in the Trask OHV. Although not the most technical of trails, the Ginsberg will provide enough variety of hills, mud, rocks and tree stumps to challenge even the more experienced drivers. As a bonus, there are stunning views of the beautiful forest and surrounding valleys along the way.

Finally made it out to this trail today. There are several small and steep rollers that may bump the undercarriage of lower clearance vehicles. The trail was dry today and not even the mud hole had water in it. After reviewing this page again I'm utterly confused. I recognize the trail I took today through waypoint 6 and through just after the mud hole in the video. After that, the trail seems completely different than what I see here. Apologies for what is most likely user error but following waypoint 6 there is a climb with a bypass to the left but it is long, steep, and in mostly clear space that does not resemble the pictures at all. It has a sharp and steep left turn at the top. Immediately following that there is a steep and pretty gnarly climb with no bypass. Since I was alone I did not attempt the second climb. I followed the gpx the whole way but the drive looks pretty different and the climb I encountered was much more challenging than anything pictured or filmed here. Large boulders at the top of a 50 yard steep climb. It looked like a lot of fun but not something I wanted to try without some company.

The Ginsberg trail is open and looking great! I've run the trail 4 times in the past 3 weeks preparing for Jeep Jamboree. There's a whole new look to the early sections, as logging activity has created a clear-cut along the western edge. The 1st couple hill climbs are getting pretty torn up, so those can be challenging - especially in the rain! (ask me how I know...)
