Environmental Assessment for Gales Creek Trail Repair and Partial Relocation, Oregon Department of Forestry (July 2009)

Main Content
Gales Creek Trail is part of the ODF recreation trail management program in the Tillamook Forest, located 32 miles west of Portland and one mile north of milepost 35 of Highway 6. It consists of 11.4 miles of trail for non-motorized traffic, including hikers, bicyclists and equestrians. The trail extends from Summit Trailhead to Reehers Camp Trailhead and winds through a forest with lush undergrowth. A total of 21 sites along a 6-mile stretch of the trail were damaged from the December storms. The damaged sites are located north of Gales Creek Campground, with the first damaged site occurring approximately two miles from the Gales Creek trailhead at the campground. There is an elevation gain of over 1,200 feet from the trailhead at Gales Creek Campground to the last damaged site to the north. In addition to repairing damaged sections of the trail, it is proposed that approximately 3 of the 6 trail miles be relocated upland away from Gales Creek to reduce the risk of repetitive damage from future storms.
