Tillamook State Forest, Oregon

Tillamook State Forest

The Tillamook State Forest is an off-roading mecca. The forest alone provide more than 250 miles of scenic trails through the wilderness. The area has something for everyone with trails of varying difficulties. For more experienced drivers, Bates Road offers amazing views of the Oregon Coast Range and a knife-edge ridge to drive along. For a more relaxed ride with views of the moss dripping foliage drivers can head to Firebreak One in the Brown's Camp Area.


Joining us this month to tell us about their trip to White Rim Trail, @trail_yeti took his Tacoma through to this trail and shared their story with us.

How'd You Get Into Overlanding?

I bought a Tacoma, joined some forums, caught the mod-bug, and became an enthusiast.

Any Upcoming Trips?

Boy #2 is due in September, so I’ll be sticking close to home for a while. Luckily for me, there are plenty of local trails to explore here in Oregon!

Favorite Cali Raised LED Product?

I always have the Fog Lights on during the day, as daytime running lights. I have them aimed down so I don’t disrupt other drivers, though the beams are still high enough to work great in the frequent Oregon rain and occasional snow storm.

Until next time! At Cali Raised LED, we not only want to encourage riders to try something new, (with all the proper precautions of course!) but also to not be too shy when it comes to checking out trails that they may not have thought possible. It's in our very slogan, "Rise Up and Seek Adventure." We really mean it.

Thank you for sharing your story with us.

If you haven't figured it out yet, we've been featuring a trail or national park or other must see location each month of the year, and sometimes we are lucky enough to find other off-roaders who have been there. They are kind enough to share their experience and their expertise. Want to be featured? Have a trail you think we should feature? Submit your photos and story to to be considered!
