Brown's Camp/TSF Closed effective 7/28

Brown's Camp/TSF now closed due to High Heat




Hi Everyone,



Due to an increase in Fire Danger and the Industrial Fire Precaution Level being raised to an IFPL 3 the OHV trails in the Tillamook State Forest (Browns Camp, Jordan Creek, Diamond Mill, and Trask) and the OHV trails in the BLM Nestucca Riding Area are CLOSED effective at 1:00 AM Tuesday, July 28th and will remain closed until further notice. In the Browns Camp, Jordan Creek, Diamond Mill, Trask and BLM Nestucca Riding areas the gravel roads remain open for OHV use.



We will let you know as soon as the trail closure is lifted.



Please help us spread the word in the OHV community and, as always, feel free to call if you have any questions.



Thanks for your help!
