    Figured this would be a scent spot to post this.

    I requested in the questions portion of the forum to add a hiking/camping section. Outside of hunting and fishing.

    I love the outdoors. I am excited to start hiking and camping in the State Forrests.

    Anyone got some good pointers to some good hikes up in the Tillamook and or Clatsop? Day trips as well as weekend trips?

    Any cool mountain peeks worthy of hiking up and camping on?

    Oh and reading online proved a bit hard to clarify. Is it ok to burn a campfire in the woods, safely of coarse?

    Saddle Mountain, if you don't already know about it. Just about 15-20 miles or so East of Seaside on hwy 26. Seven miles (Of the most annoying paved road you'll ever drive) in to the trail head. Nice little camp ground with water and flush toilets.

    Hi Reno,

    You might also check out camping in Central Oregon. You don't have to worry about testing your Gore-Tex jacket and rainfly on your tent over here....lots of open space, places to shoot, etc.
