Geez your scaring the crap out of road riders. Getting inquiries, "Is this just for GS/Dual sport bikes, can my dog cross the road"!
Carry a bow saw, machete and/or 16inch chain saw just in case. Cut the trees just wide enough for a motorbike! LOL
A can of moss kill for the real slick corners might help those behind you, not sure...

NO REASON TO BE SCARED OFF

Fear Not Brothers and Sisters !!!! The road is paved all the way. Ride with your head , not your hand and you shall arrive safely. There are alternative routes for Dualsport bikes if you want to make things more "interesting" but those are Optional and not required. The Primary reason for all of the roads in this area is Forest Management. The amount of use/traffic is dependent on active jobs within the area. Fishing and hunting create the next largest user group. If we have a weather event such as a late season snowstorm (like last year) the road will only be plowed if there is active logging in the area. The government folks will drink coffee and let the snow melt. You can access Vincent Creek Guard Station from Hwy 101 the majority of the time. Since the higher elevation portions are between the Valley and Vincent Creek.....There is a ton of great ROAD BIKE riding in this area.

Oh yea....If you have to saw any trees in half to get through, Please make the opening at least 74" wide just in case I ride my Sidecar.....Thanks

Rode through that way once - I don't think some of them roads are 74" wide... ...and had to watch for loggin' trucks coming the other way.
Sidecar=chainsaw... just sayin'

Road Conditions

The county found some budget money and is going to install a road cam at the junction of Siuslaw and the castal road that takes you to Smith River Rd. I have been assured by the county that it will be operational by Friday. Be sure to check out road conditions the morning of the 17th.

PS, you might want to throw dirt on your plate as the money came from DEA.

I just drove thru Smith River to Loraine 2 weeks ago, made it just fine in my pick up.

There is a new gate at Vincent Cr Camp Ground. FYI.

I had nothing to do with that gate, just saw it driving thru after having a nice fresh crab lunch on the coast with Lisa that weekend.

I still want the rail, but the bike that'll ride on it will have to wait a bit longer, heck I might get sequestered(whatever the blankety blank that is) next week.

I like the work and the people I work with but the government part of working for the government can be.
