Jeep trails in Oregon
 
Hey I am looking for some jeep trails in the mt hood national forest area. Nothing too extreme but just looking to get out in the woods, take the top off and have some fun this summer. Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated :)

First, welcome to Wrangler forum. There is no legal trails in the Mt. Hood national forest. You are limited to logging roads which are great for snow wheeling in the winter. If you do find some old jeep trails there please stay off them, it makes a bad name for everyone. Keep it legal. Head over to Tillamook state forest in the coast range. There is trails for all types of vehicles from mild to wild. It's more commonly referred to as TSF. Get on youtube and search tsf wheelin. That will get you an idea of whats there. Also go to the Oregon forum here and there is runs all the time. I'm going 5/16 if you want to go. http://www.wranglerforum.com/f62/may...un-157766.html

There is is sticky in Oregon forums that post meet and greets as well as runs. Come say hi. :wavey: I'm James

Also my avatar pic was taken in TSF. The trail is firebreak 5. It's a single black diamond, pretty fun.

Barlow road makes for a fun day. Take 26 to 35 north and look for signs. If you want more info post here or pm me. Bennett pass is nice. Google Badger lake. Bennett pass will take you there, there is a pucker factor on this road. More info here http://www.wranglerforum.com/f62/ben...ad-110086.html

Both of these are easy in the summer time. lost lake via lolo pass is another good one, Cheers!!

Sand Lake is another OHV option close to Portland.

True Barlow trail is a good one. 37 miles usually takes 7 hrs. very scenic.

Thanks to everyone for your ideas and input! I am looking forward to getting out there and checking these places out. Also didn't know there weren't any legal trails on Mt. Hood so that's good to know. Thanks again!

Do you know if barlow road is open this time of year yet? If not do you know who to call to find out? Ive been looking at going for some time now and was also wondering how long and difficult this trail is. I cant find anything good elsewhere on the net

I would call the Zig zag ranger station 503.622.3191 They sell maps at the ranger station as well and it's a good idea to have one. Dry the trail is very easy. Shewolf did a write up about it last year, might be in the Oregon forum.
