Forest Service Road 3420, locally known as Trenholm Saddle, is closed indefinitely due to a recent landslide. The road is closed just before milepost 2 through milepost 4 near the junction with Forest Road 3421. The Trenholm Saddle Road is located about 25 miles east of Waldport off of Highway 34.

“Currently, we are working on an alternate route to provide access to this area,” says Michele Jones, Central Coast Ranger District and Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area district ranger. “We regret any inconvenience that this may cause.”
