“Combine two short, closeby loops into a nice, quick ride.”
— Brock Warner
Need to Know
Tillamook State Forest sees heavy logging activity. Be ready to change plans if some part of your ride is closed due to logging.
In reality these loops can be ridden in any configuration. Clockwise, counter-clockwise, once, or twice. The loops are manageable enough and close enough to be creative with your endurance. Triple C Trail
is shorter and easier, so it could be a nice warm-up or cool-down.
The section of Gales Creek Trail
that connects the two is mostly uphill when heading southbound. It's quite manageable for a mildly in-shape ride. About halfway up the connecting segment, the trail crosses a retired rail-line, an amusing relic of the past. The descent back to Reehers Camp Trailhead is fast and fun.
