Tillamook State Forest – The Oregon Department of Forestry has closed all Off Highway Vehicle (OHV) trails in the Browns Camp, Jordan Creek, Diamond Mill, Trask and BLM Upper Nestucca riding area due to extreme fire danger.
As of Wednesday, July 25 at 1 a.m., ODF had moved the region into Industrial Fire Precaution Level (IFPL) 3, placing restrictions on forest use to reduce the chance of wildfire.
The restrictions will remain in place until further notice.
“The increasing temperatures and prolonged dry conditions are combining to push the Tillamook State Forest into extreme fire danger conditions,” read a statement from the Tillamook State Forest Blog, an information website maintained by the Oregon Department of Forestry.
While the OHV trails are closed, campgrounds in the area are still open, and OHV operation is permitted on maintained gravel roads in the listed OHV areas.
