One of Oregon’s Best Places for Off-Roading
Blue Ridge Trails is located four hours south of Portland, Oregon, nearby the coast. It’s a heavily forested area with well maintained trails. The park is managed by the Bureau of Land Management. The trails are more for amateurs and experts, not novices.
Hours of Operation
While the park is open for off-roading from April to December, it’s a good idea to call before heading there to check on the trail conditions. Many of the trails become difficult to traverse after heavy rains. The number to call is 541-756-0100.
