    Boundaries Set for New Coos Mountain Access Area

    Hunters and other forest visitors in eastern Coos County are seeing some access changes as resource agencies and private timberland owners join in a plan to keep the woods open to the public. Under regulations that went into effect on Aug. 25, entry on secondary and some other roads in the newly-designated, 65,000-acre Coos Mountain Access Area in the vicinity of Morgan Ridge and Burnt Mountain is restricted to foot and mountain bike traffic.
    It's hoped the plan will head off total closures or the imposition of entry fees or permits, as well as reduce vandalism and trash dumping. And while the changes are controversial, resource agency officials think they'll end up enhancing woodland habitat and hunting.
    The story is complicated, partly going back to the 1800s with efforts to build the Oregon & California (O&C) Railroad. As was the case in other parts of the West, the O&C was given public land for building the railroad and developing adjacent land. The latter was divided into a checkerboard pattern, mixed in with public lands and other ownership. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) eventually became the manager of the public lands, while the other private parcels changed hands through the years. Many were consolidated into larger holdings of corporate entities such as the Menasha Corp.
    The checkerboard ownership patterns can be frustrating, as they've sometimes resulted in keeping the public off what in effect are public lands. But as noted by Oregon Dept. of Fish & Wildlife district biologist Stuart Love, "the O&C lands are subject to unique restrictions that can limit public access in areas designated for forest and industrial use."
    In his project summary for the Coos Mountain plan, Love noted that "with shifting commercial timberland ownership, the advancement of fee-permit systems has gained in popularity. Private lands that were once accessible for 'free' (e.g., walk-in access) have shifted to a pay-to-play model. The largest commercial timberland owner in the state, Weyerhaeuser Company, has now developed an extensive recreational permit system, maintaining access for hunters but with a multitude of restrictions, including the total number of permits available."
    In an interview, Love explained that in 2016, Menasha's Coos County lands were sold and split into several small ownerships, whose new owners "started considering closing all access to their lands as a way of dealing with ongoing vandalism, theft and trash dumping." In an effort to head off closures or permits, ODF&W and other agencies worked out the compromise, with vehicles now confined to main arterial and some secondary roads, unless otherwise designated.
    "Roads are closed unless marked open," said Love. This in itself is a novel approach. In the past, if roads were signed as being closed, people would just take down the signs. In the Coos Mountain area, "the roads are closed by default unless we've opened them," said Love. Open roads are marked by green dot signs. Four-ft-tall kiosk signs at five major intersections spell out the new regulations, he said, which have been in effect since Aug. 25. Funding for the 3-year project, estimated at $152,000, will come from the ODF&W's Access and Habitat fund, along with payments from timber companies.
    Based on experiences in other areas with similar access rules, said Love, "at the very beginning there's confusion, but over time people will realize the value of road closures . . . and will start to police it themselves." Volunteers from the Oregon Hunters Association will also help, he said.
    Love admitted the new regs are being met with "mixed reviews. You can now walk or bike down lots of roads and not be run over by a truck, and some people love that. Others are very frustrated and feel it's not reasonable to close off public access to public land." He said some hunters traditionally drive to the end of dead-end roads to logging landings or other open areas, "and do their hunting right there. It's the more serious hunter who wants to go on foot, not just drive to the end of the road. This makes the whole road a good place to hunt." What's more, he said, "animals move away from heavily-used roads, so this effectively adds new places to hunt." Since the regulations are in effect year round, they'll give areas a chance to revert to a more wildlife-friendly habitat, Love and other resource managers hope.
    Love noted Coos County is home to the largest elk population in Oregon, and that the Tioga Management Unit has the largest number of tags issued to hunters in the state. It also draws many hunters for everything from bears to deer to upland birds. The good news – at least for hunters – is that even with the new restrictions, the game will still be here, and you'll still be able to get to it.
    Official maps showing the new boundaries and other information can be found via an Internet search for the Coos Mountain Access Area, or contact the ODF&W office in Charleston.

    Camp Creek Ramblings
    Tom Baake

    Read More
    Photo Caption: A visitor enjoys the waterfall along Camp Creek east of Reedsport.
    On a recent foray into the woods, I was pleased to discover that one of my favorite jaunts has been reopened following roadwork. The Camp Creek area, in the vicinity of Loon Lake about 15 miles east of Reedsport, takes in a vast tract of land under Bureau of Land Management (BLM) ownership – along with private timberlands – that's interlaced with paved and gravel roads offering lots of possibilities for exploration. You can also make some nifty loops.
    Camp Creek Road itself is a peaceful, paved forest byway that rises and falls gently along a bubbling brook for many miles, with plenty of places to stop for a picnic – there's even a nice waterfall. As much fun as it is just touring along in a vehicle, it's also an ideal motorcycle ride, and lots of fun for bicyclists, too, although the full loop as described here involves some significant elevation changes.
    Camp Creek becomes even more beautiful as fall arrives, as both the road and the creek are canopied with alders, big-leaf maples and other deciduous trees that put on a colorful show. The setting is more dramatic and stark in winter, with the creek foaming and racing along. In spring the outburst of greenery almost takes your breath away, while summer (and Indian Summer) is just plain mellow. All this as a way of saying any time of year is a good time to visit Camp Creek.
    Getting There
    From the intersection of US 101 and Highway 38 in Reedsport, go east on Highway 38 about 13 miles and turn south on Mill Creek Rd., following signs to Loon Lake. In 5 miles, turn left (E) on Camp Creek Rd., BLM 22-10-35.0. Mileages begin here: The route follows the gentle rise of Camp Creek, which gurgles along on the south side of the road. The river is low, even for this time of year, but there's lots of evidence of its winter fury in the form of downed and displaced trees along the main stem and in the tributary creeks.
    In addition to the aforementioned canopy of leafy trees, there are stately old red cedars standing sentinel in places, while intervals of exposed rock walls soar up hundreds of feet.
    To visit the waterfalls, at about 11.5 miles turn right (SE) on Otter Creek Rd., BLM 23-9-2.0. Follow it 0.2 miles to a gravel road to a parking area. Follow your ears to this wonderful multi-level cascade, and enjoy.
    You can retrace your route down Camp Creek Rd. to your starting point. To make the loop – remember, it involves serious climbing -- continue east on Camp Creek Rd. and at just under 14 miles turn right (S) on Lindy Bridge Rd., BLM 23-9-13.0. The road immediately crosses a bridge and heads uphill. It's a push, with few switchbacks! At a "T" intersection at about 17.5 miles, turn north on Buck Creek Rd., BLM 23-9-4.0. At about 18.5 miles is a "T" intersection with Soup Creek Rd. BLM 23-9-19.0. There's an awesome old-growth Douglas fir on the northwest corner.
    Now go down Soup Creek Rd. through beautiful forest. About 1 mile along, at a "Y" intersection with BLM 23-9-16.0, bear left, staying on Soup Creek Rd. Brush and bracken hug the road, but stay the course, we're almost there.
    At a "T" intersection with Lower Soup Creek Rd. at about mile 22, take the left fork, Douglas County 72. Double yellow roadway lines appear. Cattle guards, barbed wire fences and No Tresspassing signs. Civilization! You'll arrive at a "T" intersection at about 23 miles. To the left about a quarter-mile away is the settlement of Ash, complete with an old schoolhouse.
    However, for this journey, turn right (N) on Mill Creek Rd., Douglas County 3. Loon Lake appears in two miles. You'll pass Loon Lake Lodge RV Resort, then climb up to encounter Loon Lake Lodge.
    The road passes BLM East Shore campground and BLM Loon Lake Recreation Area (with a sandy swimming beach), then it's all downhill two miles back to Camp Creek Rd. and the start of this loop. Happy Camp Creeking!

    Bayshore Walk Offers Lots Of Variety Along the Way
    Tom Baake

    Photo Caption: A hiker on the Coos Bay shoreline passes one of the distinctive spherical formations known as a concretion.

    Ocean beaches get most of the attention, but bay shorelines can be interesting, too. Subject to the same twice-daily tidal inundation as ocean beaches, whipped by winds just as fierce, strewn with the same sort of flotsam, yet rarely mentioned and little visited.
    The shoreline between Empire and Charleston is a good example. There's a remarkable amount of variety in this stretch of the vast Coos Bay estuary, from sandy beaches to sticky mudflats to slippery shelves to pebbly interludes, not to mention unusual geology, abundant birdlife and pocket tidepools.
    But there's been some recent development, including a new wastewater plant and an upscale RV park, and I wanted to see how public access may be affected. For my research, I enlisted a friend to set up a two-car shuttle so we'd only have to walk one way -- from the Empire Boat Ramp to Charleston.
    We set off during a recent minus tide. (Rubber boots or other waterproof footwear are strongly advised as there are little creeks to ford along the way.)
    The first surprise was how much beach was revealed at low tide: more than the length of a football field from water's edge to high tide line. Lapping little waves had sculpted the firm sand into furrows, best described as corrugated. We headed south, making the only footprints visible on this stretch.
    Suddenly here was looser footing through a mudflat. Though not true quicksand, the mud will engulf your shoes if you're not nimble. Indeed, walking gingerly atop the bay mud made me realize how much a metaphor for life it is. What will happen with your next step? Will the footing be firm? Sure, it may have been firm so far, but suddenly the goo loosens and you start sinking! What to do? Hurry forward and hope things firm up? Turn around and retrace your steps and try a different route? Well, it turns out a little of both. Sometimes you plow forward and other times beat a strategic retreat.
    Which certainly adds extra steps to this walk. . .
    About a half-mile along was the Empire wastewater plant, with lots of activity associated with the new plant nearby. Although a favorite picnic table has been displaced by the temporary construction, there's still an excellent little beach here, with soft sand underfoot and big old logs to sit on.
    Continuing down the beach, we arrived at Crab Flats at about 1.5 miles. The beach changed appearance again, now lined with broken glass and ceramic shards, remnants of early-day trash dumping.
    Still southbound, we encountered pilings and what's left of an old dock, once part of a sawmill, now the site of the aforementioned new RV park immediately inland.
    I was pleased to find neither the wastewater plant project nor this one seemed to affect access. In fact, here were a couple of people walking on the beach! There were also people in the next stretch, a popular clamming area.
    Rounding the next landmark – Pigeon Point – we saw Charleston still looking far away, and were glad to have the shuttle car waiting. We slogged across the cove toward Fossil Point, then traversed a stretch of rocky beach that gives the area its name. Fossilized cockles and clams are embedded everywhere – underfoot, in the embankments, in small pillars of stone. Most intriguing, though, are the spherical formations known as concretions.
    Another surprise was the presence of so many tidepools, populated by healthy numbers of green anemones, along with tiny crustaceans and other busy little critters.
    Although Charleston was getting nearer, we encountered a steep point of land sticking out into the water, around which we could not get, even at low tide. But after a bit of searching, we found a narrow path over the point, and were soon enjoying another stretch of firmly-packed sand. We were closing in on Charleston -- the rich aromas of restaurants wafted our way, urging us on.
    Not so fast, bay wanderers! First came a stream to be negotiated, as well as a section of slippery, moss-covered rocks, and finally, a big fallen tree through whose web of busted branches we clambered. One final point rounded, we encountered yet another sweeping cove, this one all sticky mud. We found firmer footing higher up on the beach and skirted the edge of Barview Wayside, another often-overlooked gem.
    And then here was Charleston! Perhaps awaiting further research, specifically into those wonderful aromas. Clam chowder, anyone?

We use abbreviations to save space in the paper, saving cost, that we pass on to our advertisers with lower classified rates than comparable papers across the Nation. A new way of naming products has developed that make product names unnecessarily longer. We will list these names in the traditional way to continue to save space in the paper, saving cost that we can continue to pass on to our advertisers. Examples: Ranger XLT by Ford would be abbreviated to: Ford Ranger XLT OceanRunner Rainbow Series by WildSeas would be abbreviated to: WildSeas Rainbow OceanRunner In the body of an ad always use numerals. Example: Newer 3bdr home. At the beginning of an ad spell out short numbers.
