The log track is a custom building added in update V1.10 to The Forest. It can be built once the schematics are collected from an underwater cave off the southern coast (see the schematics page for more details.)

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The log tracks main use is for long distance transportation of logs, but can also be used for sledding with the turtle shell. When starting a sled from the top of an angled log track, the sled will accelerate to its maximum speed very quickly, allowing for exit ramps, thrill rides, or other uses. A guard rail made of sticks is present on the sides to prevent the player from sliding off prematurely, possibly leading to an untimely death by falling.

Notably, log tracks also serve as cost-efficient and ideal ramps up steep inclines, as well as bridges across bodies of water. Unlike custom stairs, log tracks consist of multiple interconnected segments rather than a single ramp, meaning that they can turn corners, alternate size and slope, and provide greater flexibility. Unless built from near-maximum steepness, log track can be climbed on foot without needing to jump. Construction of log track is also more accurate, owing to the fact that custom stairs will acquire a slight offset to each step when completed, and the log track will not.

Note: Sharp turns will often cause guardrails to overlap in the interior of the turn, and not exist at all in the exterior. Gentle turns are always preferred between segments!

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The log track was originally called the coaster when it was released in v1.10, though its name was changed to log track in update v1.11
