Recreation

Please use the Oregon Department of Transportation's TripCheck website​ for information on major roads.  

 

State forests are working forests, full of activity and traffic related to land management and recreation which keeps forest roads busy. Follow these tips for travelling safely in all state forests: 

 

 

 

 

 
  • Know Before You Go: Check the website road report or contact a district office when you are planning your trip so that you have the most current information.
  • Slow Down: Forest roads are often gravel and require a different type of driving skillset than paved roads. Cars, trucks, ATVs, and motorcycles all handle differently on forest roads, so driving at speeds lower than 25 miles per hour is recommended. 
  • Keep to the Right: Forest roads are narrower than typical two-lane paved roads. Drive with caution and stay to the right anticipating oncoming traffic such as log trucks, gravel trucks, heavy equipment, and other vehicles.
