Default Astoria

Someone on the main blog mentioned that is is possible to reach Astoria from Portland on Dirt/Gravel roads, only crossing paved ones. Any ideas?

There are lots of Forest Service looking roads out there, but I can't make them all connect.

Thanks

Psy, there's a'plenty o' dirt road out thar..!

some reference maps that you might find useful in finding a route:

- either/both of the Oregon atlases, one by Benchmark and one by DeLorme. the Mult Co library may have them..? they're both pretty detailed, the Delorme maybe more so -

- the BLM map titled "Salem westside" (i think?) - shows this area

unfortunately the really large-scale Tillamook forest map doesn't go this far north.

hope this helps a bit -

"Salem District Westside"

I have not got it yet, so I don't know what it shows exactly.

Default Salem Westside Recreation map (BLM)

ok, I pulled mine out - and believe me finding anything in my map drawer is a task -

it shows from McMinville north to the Columbia, and Portland west to the coast on one side; from Mac down to (almost) Eugene on the other.

it's huge, you could use it for an emergency tarp. 1/2" = 1 mile scale. Likely available at Nature of the NW, or the BLM office is you can track those shysters down.
