E-mail received today from Stephanie Beall with the Oregon Department of Forestry. Please help to share this info with other OHV enthusiasts as soon as possible. Thanks in advance...

Effective 1:00 AM on Wednesday, September 7, 2011 the Tillamook State Forest will enter an Industrial Fire Precaution Level (IFPL) 3.
At that time the following rules will apply until further notice:
· ALL OHV trails in the Browns Camp, Jordan Creek, Diamond Mill, Trask, and Upper Nestucca areas are CLOSED.
· ALL operation of OHVs in the Tillamook State Forest OHV areas and the Upper Nestucca is limited to maintained gravel roads only.
· ALL personal chainsaw use is prohibited in the Tillamook State Forest.
The trails will re-open when the IFPL drops back down to a Level 2 or a Level 1. I will send out an e-mail and update the TSF website when the IFPL drops back down and trails open.
Thanks for your help in keeping the Tillamook State Forest safe from wildfires!
