    In September I am coming up to Oktoberfest the long way. For part of the ride I am looking to ride Jordan Creek to Hagg Lake via Browns Camp. I got the stretch between JC and Browns no problem. However I am not sure if the way is blocked/gated between Browns and Hagg once you leave the Tillamook Forest. It has been several years since I have ridden that stretch.

    If anyone has knowledge if it is open and could let me know I would be grateful.

    Here is the route in question:

    Scoggin Valley Rd is gated and closed the few times I've tried to go down it. I live very close to Hagg Lake.

    OK. Thanks. Guess I will have to exit at Rodgers and take HWY 6 :-(

    Good to know ahead of time though.

    Thanks again.

    The route you chose used to be a good one. :clap I have ridden it many times. But several years ago Stimson lumber, who owns it, closed at all public travel. :cry You could go from Jones Creek south to Nestucca and go into hag Lake from the South. :wink:

    Thanks for the update on the gate Rick... I was afraid of that. If you Google Satelite it you can see all the clear cut so I thought it might be on Lumber Lock Down :(


    jjdun7, I am interested, but Jones Creek is North of the 6 and Nestucca( NF 85?) is pretty far south. Hagg is not the destination, just a landmark. Really want to spin the Vstrom Wheels around the old stomping ground of Browns. Coming up the coast then then starting at Jordan Creek I was looking for a back road exit from browns to get get me heading east towards Oktoberfest (Mt Angel). A Cross, Lyda, C-Line and of course the powerlines are some of my old favorites I want to hit. Only issue seems to be getting out of the Tillamook forest heading east to west without having to take the 6 or back track pretty far. Any big bike friendly exit from the forest short of taking the 6 is my goal.

    Thanks
