One Step ~ 4 Counties in Oregon

Published Date Author: , January 29th, 2014

It may look like a grave marker of a long lost surveyor.  But it’s not.

Four Counties Marker in the Tillamook State ForestEveryone has heard about America’s Four Corners.  That would be the only place where four state boundaries meet: Utah, Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona.

In Oregon our Four County Point in the Tillamook State Forest notes the meeting of Clatsop, Columbia, Washington and Tillamook counties.

The trailhead has a brown four counties sign on the north side of U.S. 26, at milepost 34.8 (this is 2.9 miles west of the Timber-Vernonia junction, or about 39 miles west of Portland).

It takes about an 45 minutes to make the one mile hike out and back to see the marker and stand on all four counties at once. That makes Four County Point a quick leg-stretching hike when you’re driving between Portland and the northern Oregon coast.”

And then there is the drive down the Oregon Coast.  Talk about an Oregon Geotourism Experience?  But that’s another blog.
