    From my perspective, I don't think tracks are what you're looking for, since they just give you one possible route. I'd think you want regions to explore, so you can go on ANY of the good bad roads.

    There's a lot to ride, but nothing perfectly close. You'll need DS tires to pull at least 30-40 min, depending on where you are, to get to gravel.

    That said, there are great roads behind Scappoose, great roads almost anywhere in the Coast Range (Clatsop SF, Tillamook SF, south of TSF, etc. Good riding off of Lolo Pass rd past Sandy, probably tons of roads off Hwy 26 between Sandy and the intersection of 35, plus LOTs of FS roads off of 224.

    He could hit up any of the major gravel and potholed side streets that scatter outer SE!
