20 Rivers to Cross, A Trip Through the Oregon Coastal Mountains Episode 1

This trip started in 2018 when I was wondering if there was a north south backcountry route through the Oregon coastal mountains from the Columbia River to the California Border. I started researching maps and the web to see if it was possible. A route slowly appeared that ran through a mix of public and private land.. The route travels through active logging areas where a CB radio is required to monitor the log truck operations. Remember that logging operations have the right of way. There are several gates that were open to the private land areas with signs that they could be closed and locked at anytime. I hope you enjoy the trip.

You can watch the video on YouTube.
