Valsetz Professional Review and Guide
"This is an interesting and pleasant drive, mostly through intensively managed industrial forest land. The drive includes a visit to the site of an abandoned town and a defunct reservoir in a wide valley on the South Fork Siletz River. A wide gravel road."
--Art Bernstein, Oregon Byways (Wilderness Press).
They have the road gated off right outside of Falls City, where the private land begins. There is no way to get to Valsetz at this time, and I'm not sure when they open (or even IF they open) it back up.
Was a pleasant drive for us. A little wet and cool but hey, it is the coast range in spring, what do you expect? We actually continued on from the former townsite to the Valley of the Giants. The gate outside of Falls City is open on weekends, though it is closed duing fire season so plan accordingly
