McCubbins Gulch OHV
McCubbins Gulch OHV riding area, located approximately 50 miles southeast of Portland, was first established back in the early 1960s 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 quads (ATVs, Class 1).
While McCubbins doesn’t offer any off-highway opportunities for full sized 4x4s or side-by-sides over 50” in width, it does offer approximately 72 miles of Class 3 (single track) with approximately 50 miles also open to Class 1 (quads). McCubbins Campground & Day Use Area is also ATV amenable, but there are many dispersed camping sites scattered throughout the entire riding area - please use caution.
McCubbins Gulch OHV Riding Area is subject to a seasonal closure to protect winter range for elk and deer populations during the winter months. Elevation is approximately 3,000 feet.
