The most popular place is Tillamook State Forest. You will need an offroad permit to wheel there. You can pick them up at most stores along the way. You can also pick up maps from there. Follow Hwy 26 out to Hwy 6 to Tillamook. It is about 15-20 miles down Hwy 6 on the left. You will see signs for Rogers Camp. Turn there.

Rogers Camp is a staging area right off the highway. Browns Camp is much further into TSF.
Yes most of the trails are pretty easy in the summer. I hear they got the OK to make some new trails though <IMG SRC="smilies/bounce2.gif" border="0">
Anyone know of any harder trails around there to run?

Use the map that you can get at the store before staging area of Browns camp.
Party on

Seems to me that when I first started wheeln that I was alot more ignorant and somehow that made it easier? <IMG SRC="smilies/confused.gif" border="0"> Any way if your down email me or pm me we can get somthing together.

i would love to hook up with you guys and do some wheeling. i have sun/mon off and was planning on going out there to check it out, but this would be even better!
email back to [email protected]
and we can work out the details.
i dont have any offroad supplies yet... the only thing i do have is a fire extinguisher.
no other recover tools. do i need to get some before we can go out this weekend? if so what are the true basics you need to go wheeling?

The only thing you might want to bring is somthing other then a JEEP. My buddy and I are sick of the Toyotas clowning the Jeeps right Mohadeab? <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0"> Oh this is going to be great saying some stuff like this on the Jeep board, I cant wait!

Yeah I just get bored because nobody is on here at night, so I cruise the whole board. I own a 72 fj40. But I do wheel with all, and not really stuck on the whole better then thou thing. Just fun to mix it up a bit.

Just hop onto I-5 South, until you get to State Route 50. Make a left turn at IceHouse Road. Follow to top of mountain(32 miles)
Air down and hit the Rubicon!! <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

can you run the rubicon trails year round or just when there is a group trail run?

You can run the Rubicon whenever it isnt burried in snow.
You probably don't want to go up there when the jamboree goers or the Chrysler corp is up there. Its gets like 5:00 rush hour.
I like to go in the middle of the week to avoid the flock.
Go to jeepjamboreeusa.com or Jeepersjamboree.com for thier shchedules.

People run the Rubicon year round. To be legal, from November to March, you have to enter from Wentworth Springs. The Ellis 4X4 trail from Loon Lake to Ellis Creek is closed during the winter months.
As for this year, both Jambos have gone through, as well as Chrystler <IMG SRC="smilies/devil.gif" border="0"> .
The trail should be a lot less crowded on the weekends.
Wheeled up there just yesterday. I went into little sluice. Trail is in very rough condition, and very dry. And the place was dead!!! I saw maybe five trucks on my way out. <IMG SRC="smilies/eek.gif" border="0">
