Nicolai Mountain OHV Area

Friday, November 04, 2016

Alt Names

Clatsop County, Clatsop State Forest, Shingle Mill Road, Hunt Creek, McNary Creek

Last Known StatusOpen

This OHV area offers over 17 miles of trails that are open to quads, UTVs and dirt bikes. The area offers a wide variety of terrain that ranges from hardpacked and smooth trails to rugged and rocky with slippery tree roots and occasional loose chunk rock.

The trails form several long loops and are marked, and a couple gravel pits to play in. There is a designated staging area located at the northern part of the trail system but there are a couple primitive campgrounds tucked away.

The area is open year-round and while there is no fee to ride or camp there are no amenities except for a vault toilet.
