** Due to safety concerns about road stability, a vehicle barricade is in place approximately 2.4 miles from the Doerner Fir trailhead on the East Fork Brummet Creek Road, #27-9-21. Please note that this will add approximately two hours of hiking time to and from the Doerner Fir. For more information, please contact the BLM's Coos Bay District Office at (541)756.0100.**
The Doerner Fir is one of the largest coast Douglas fir trees in the world. Winding roads take travelers through some of the most valuable forests in the nation to this site 50 miles from Coos Bay in Oregon's Coast Range mountains. Once at the trailhead, take a half-mile hike through a pristine old-growth stand to the Doerner Fir.
