The Trask River watershed is approximately 175 square miles (112,164 acres) in size and is located primarily within Tillamook County, with small portions in Washington and Yamhill counties. The Trask River is one of five major rivers in the Tillamook basin (which also includes the Tillamook, Wilson, Kilchis, and Miami rivers) that originate in the northern Oregon Coast Range and drain into Tillamook Bay. For the purposes of this analysis, the Trask watershed is subdivided into eight subwatersheds (6th field watersheds), which will be the basic units for many analyses in this report. Seven of the eight subwatersheds are located in the forested uplands of the Oregon Coast Range; the eighth subwatershed is located in the floodplains of the lower Trask River. Barney Reservoir in the Middle Fork of the North Fork subwatershed is the primary municipal water supply for the cities of Beaverton, Hillsboro, and Forest Grove.
