Other Names

Willamette National Forest, Detroit Ranger Station, Mt. Jefferson, Cascade Range

Last Known StatusTemporarily Closed  (due to Beachie Creek and Lionshead Fire closures)

This part of the Willamette National Forest offers about 50 miles narrow ATV trails and old logging roads that wind through a dense pine tree forest. There are some nice views of Mt. Jefferson and the surrounding Cascade Mountain Range.

The trails are rated as mostly easy since the terrain primarily consists of hard packed dirt with some crushed gravel, making this a good spot to bring a dual sport motorcycle or novice riders. During the winter months snowmobile are permitted.
