Non-Motorized Trails

With close to 80 miles of routes open to hikers, mountain bikers and equestrians, the Tillamook State Forest is a trail enthusiast's paradise.  Visitors can plan short day trip, out-and-back treks, take advantage of a loop trail opportunity or even an overnight outing between trailheads.

Easily accessed from a number of day use areas and campgrounds, the forest's trails wind through a scenic coastal forest of Douglas-fir, alder and maples with an understory covered in plants such as ferns, wildflowers, Oxalis and salal. 

There is a trail experience in for everyone in the Tillamook State Forest.  Wanderers can find easy trails for a scenic stroll paralleling salmon streams through the dense plant life surrounding riparian areas.  Adventurers looking for a challenge can tackle black diamond traverses that climb to scenic vistas along rocky outcroppings.
Planning your trip is easy.
