This trip started in 2018 when I was wondering if there was a north south backcountry route through the Oregon coastal mountains from the Columbia River to the California Border. I started researching maps and the web to see if it was possible. A route slowly appeared that ran through a mix of public and private land.. The route travels through active logging areas where a CB radio is required to monitor the log truck operations. Remember that logging operations have the right of way. There are several gates that were open to the private land areas with signs that they could be closed and locked at anytime. I hope you enjoy the trip.

Episode 2 of our trip through the Oregon Coastal Mountains is now up on YouTube. In this episode we will start from a hunters camp near the Trask river and continue south through the coastal mountains on our way to the California Border. Along the way we will see a black bear, cross 12 rivers, and enjoy some beautiful views.

Nice finding a route along the coastal range. I'll be watching your videos to see how you do. I know that I've come across a couple of blocked routes while exploring the logging regions in the Tillamook SF.

I have hit blocked roads in TSF several times. Maps show the road going through even though they are blocked or totally washed out. Hope you enjoy the videos.
