Farmland near Gaston, Oregon
Park on the nearby road, and walk a little way in publicly accessible forestland to get to the hashpoint.
It proved to all be farm land in the area, so it was off limits. My GPS was also reporting that the hashpoint was a mile away from the roadway, which didn't make sense at the time.
Later close examination of Google Maps revealed that I really was more than a mile from the hashpoint. It turns out that for some reason Google Maps is moving the hashpoint to the nearest road instead of leaving it off-road. This caused me to believe it was close to the roadway: Hence the confusion.
I'm pretty sure that in the past Google Maps has kept the hashpoint off=road, but it isn't doing that in this case. Regardless, the private land was preventing access.
