All OHV Trails OPEN: Effective 09.16.2021


As we are beginning to see the early signs of fall on bushes and rain is finally in the forecast, the state forests will be experiencing significant changes for public recreation in the coming days and weeks.

Beginning with the September 16, 2021 downgrading of fire danger to "moderate" across the Forest Grove District, the district's OHV trails and the forest roads north of Highway 26 will be opening to public use. This change means that all OHV trails across the Tillamook and Clatsop state forests will be open for public usage, as well as the North Fork Wolf Creek Shooting Lanes.
