Getting There

This is a short loop educational tour through old growth timber. As you walk the loop clockwise you will pass 9 different information stations pointing out aspects of Oregon's forestry. As you follow the trail, you will come across two sets of signposts, one numbered and one lettered. The numbered signposts are designed for adults and the lettered signposts are designed for school age children. There is also a nice covered area with beautiful log benches to eat lunch. You can pick up a brochure at the Starker Forest offices in Corvallis. They also do guided tours during the summer.

From Corvallis, Oregon take US HWY 20 (or the Newport Hwy) west towards the coast. At Blodget, take a left of the highway at the Blodget School sign. Go about 30 yards and take a right, and then the first left as you pass the school. This is TumTum road (which runs along and behind the school). Follow TumTum road about 1.5 files (it will become a gravel road) until you see the Starker Forest Tour sign on your right. Turn right and go down a short gravel road to the parking lot. This is your starting point. WGS84 44.34.296;123.31.885 elevation is about 800 feet.
