Tillamook State Forest

Tillamook State Forest offers myriad opportunities for fun and adventure, whatever your outdoor recreation pursuit. Nestled in the spectacular Oregon Coast Range—on the scenic Wilson River Highway, and just an hour’s drive from Portland—the Tillamook State Forest Center is the largest state forest in Oregon.

The forest offers a wide spectrum of trails for both motorized and non-motorized activities, campgrounds, day use areas and staging areas. Climb the Summit South Saddle Mountain, the tallest mountain in the Tualatin Valley and the 8th highest peak of the Oregon Coast Range. Visit the Tillamook State Forest blog for detailed information and updated trail and site status.
