Jeeps at the Oregon Coast

Hello All!

My buddy and I took his dad to the Oregon Coast yesterday. His Dad has yet to see the Pacific Ocean, so there you have it.. Here is a picture I took with my phone... Yeah, my SLR was completely dead when I took it out to snap this shot.. Sorry about the quality here as I am a TOOL for not checking my camera before leaving!!!

Hey, your jeeps are beyond "this point"!
Man, I miss the Oregon coast! I spent a lot of time between Lincoln City and Newport. Where abouts did you go?

Yeah, I was going to title this "Jeeps Behaving Badly," because of the sign.. I can just imagine how well these pics would have turned out with my good camera.

This is a little spot in Lincoln City right below the Coho Inn.. It is a tiny little driveway which most people would just miss without even knowing. The seas were so ANGRY yesterday with several 10 foot breakers..

If you're interested. Timbercrawler.com is a regional board with mostly Oregon and Washington wheelers. Lots of Portlanders and such on there to wheel with.


Do you guys go out to TSF often?

Thanks for the info.. I will definitely check them out.

Yes, we go to the TSF during the summer months, but we have only been a few times. I just recently purchased my Jeep, so she hasn't been there yet. I absolutely love the TSF.. I am originally from Washington and let me tell you, the way they manage the forest makes it one of the best spots I have seen..

I've been out to TSF once during the summer a few years back and it was a blast. I cant remember all the trails we hit, but I know we hit Can Opener, Water Fall, I think Firebreak 5, and Archers, but I could be wrong about the last two. I primarily wheel Naches, Rimrock, and local places though here in Washington. I'd love to head back into Oregon to run TSF again though.

I really like the TSF for many reasons.. Yeah, I am familiar with Can Opener and Waterfall. When we were there in July, the Can Opener claimed two Jeeps. It was amazing to see everybody jump into action and "Right" the overturned Jeeps. Everyone we have encountered in the TSF have been great and willing to help with any situation. As for Waterfall, we weren't comfortable hitting that with my buddy's jeep as he is relatively stock (w/ 31X10.50 BFG MT).. He didn't want to trash it on his first outing. However; we had to watch several stock jeeps make waterfall. NEXT YEAR FOR SURE!

Firebreak 5 and Archers are cool, but the most fun we had was on what they affectionately refer to as "Rock Up-Hill." Rocky is can be very mean to Jeeps. The best way to describe it is just as its name states; a Rocky Up Hill climb with a 3 foot ledge atop its MASS. The first handful of guys were unsuccessful, but once we figured out the line, most of the guys were able to make it over. It was most definitely was a team effort to overtake that bad-boy..

When I was up there I made it up Can Opener without too much trouble I hit the end had my jeep laid against the bank. I couldn't quite drive out without leveling myself out so I had to make some full throttle assaults turning up the side of the bank and up the rocks at the end. It was fun. The rest of the group went without incident, until my friend flopped his XJ on its side. He actually drove out of it. It was pretty cool to watch.

Waterfall was just nasty. I took the path to the left of it and opted out of the water fall itself. It was nasty as hell at the time and I would have either ended up on my top or standing on my tail gate. I don't think any one made it up the face of the water fall.

I think we hit this Rock Up Hill you speak of. Our group stopped mid trail while people attempted it. We waited for ever. It was kicking every ones asses. It was this fairly long steep hill climb with loose base ball to basket ball sized rocks with about a 3 foot vertical ledge at the top. I didn't expect to make it. Every one else struggled with it. I threw the jeep in 2nd gear and throttled up the hill and then powered up the ledge. I was the first one to make it on the first attempt. After that every one hit the same line and made it on their first attempts. I didn't choose the line on purpose, I didn't have a choice with the way I drove up the hill. lol

I really want to go out to TSF again. Maybe some time this summer I'll hit it up again. I'll let you know if I do.
