New trail bridges built in Tillamook Forest

Oregon Department of Forestry recently constructed two new off-highway vehicle (OHV) trail bridges on the Elliott Creek and Military OHV trails, which cross the Devil’s Lake Fork on the Wilson River, an important salmon stream in the northern Coast Range near mile marker 33 on State Highway 6.

The project replaced failing and poorly located bridges, and enhanced and restored stream habitat through trail and bridge relocation.

The new 114 foot-long bridge on the Elliott Creek Trail replaced four bridges that were located within the stream channel and floodplain. One was failing, and all risked damage during a major flood or storm.

The project was funded entirely through grants, including a Yamaha Access Initiative GRANT to support bridge design and engineering work. The GRANT (Guaranteeing Responsible Access to our Nation’s Trails) was awarded as part of the Yamaha OHV Access Initiative promoting safe, responsible riding and open, sustainable riding areas.
