Map of McCubbins Gulch

McCubbins Gulch OHV riding area, located approximately 50 miles southeast of Portland out Hwy 26 south to Hwy 216 east to Forest Service Road 2110, was first established back in the early 60's as a favorite place for dirt bikers coming out of the Portland area.  Although originally designed and laid out with dirt bikes (single track-class 3) in mind, many of the established trails have been opened up to Class 1 ATVs (quads).  The trail system is maintained by the help of volunteer groups: Mt. Scott Motorcylce Club and Hurricane Racing.
