East of Medford in the Rogue River National Forest, the Prospect OHV Trail System has 213 miles of trails open ATV riding.
To reach the Woodruff Staging Area from Medford, follow State Highway 62 east about 51 miles. Turn left on forest road 68 (paved) at the Woodruff junction. Follow forest road 68 approximately 1 mile, and then turn right following the signs to the Woodruff OHV Staging Area.
The Woodruff Play Area is open between June 15 through November 30. The play area contains a sandpit, and approximately 6 miles of trail opportunities including a moto-cross track, and a learners loop (both open to Class I and Class III only). However, the play area falls within the Prospect Green Dot Area, which restricts motor vehicle access to designated roads during elk hunting season. The play area is closed during this ten-day season in late October. During the season, some trails may be periodically closed for maintenance or reconstruction.
Note: As of September 2007, ATV riding is permitted on all developed Forest Service roads as long as the ATV has a valid Oregon ATV sticker.
Overall, Prospect OHV Trail System is the 18th most popular ATV riding trail of all 44 ATV trails in Oregon. Several of the better atv trails are nearby Prospect OHV Trail System including Applegate Valley, McGrew 4WD Trail and Johns Peak / Timber Mountain Area.
