University Falls Trail Access

University Falls Road improvements temporarily impact access to the University Falls Trailhead and equestrian access to Stagecoach Horse Camp.

A new fish passage culvert is being installed on University Falls Road at the water crossing just past the University Falls Trailhead as you head in to Stagecoach Horse Camp.  (Having entered the forest at milepost 33 from Highway 6.)  

The project work will temporarily close the University Falls Trailhead and impact access to Stagecoach Horse Camp by equestrians for the duration of the project.

ODF asks that folks with horse trailers avoid using the alternate routes into the facility from Highway 6 during the project work.  Many mapping services show access to Stagecoach through the forest on South Fork Road, Stage Road, University Falls Road or Rutherford Road.  While these roads are open to the public, each of these entry points puts drivers on a steep, windy road not suitable for pulling a trailer of any kind into the forest. 

As always, ODF encourages folks to scout the alternate routes to Stagecoach without a trailer before making the attempt to drive in on any route aside from the traditional entry of Beaver Dam Road to University Falls Road to the Powerline access.

TSF OHV Trails RE-OPEN on 09/08/2017

Effective on Friday, September 8, 2017 at 1:00 PM.

Hi Everyone,

Good news!  Effective Friday, September 8, 2017 at 1:00 PM the designated OHV trails in the Tillamook State Forest (Browns Camp, Lyda Camp, Jordan Creek, Diamond Mill and Trask areas) and the BLM Upper Nestucca Riding area will be OPEN.

With the changing weather patterns, this will probably not be the only fire danger closure this summer.  We will continue to e-mail updates and post current conditions on the TSF blog.

Thanks for your help in preventing wildfires!
