Grant's Getaways: Tillamook Forest Center
One of the great pleasures about travel across Oregon is that there is an endless supply of fascinating stories waiting to be told.

One of the most intriguing and exciting stories was born in the forest just off Portland’s front step – the Tillamook State Forest.

That’s where four successive and devastating fires – collectively called the Tillamook Burn – destroyed over 400,00 thousand acres of ancient forest in the last century.

You can see and hear and get a real hands-on flavor for that story at a place you may have missed along State Highway 6, the Tillamook Forest Center.

As seasons change, the signs are clear and close at hand – at long last, spring has arrived to the Oregon outdoors!
