This area is not to announce a run or an outing. It is meant specifically as a means of laying out information for others on trail heads, meeting areas and specfic information on a given area. Each Topic starter is responsible for keeping the top most post up to date and incorporate anybody elses information. A clean thread will best be used by our members.

Topic title should be labled as such.
State-Park Area.

ex. [Washington] - Walker Valley

There should be some included basics in everything post. The simplist way would be to cut and paste the following information in the box below and make changes in a new topic. Holding your left mouse button down start from the first line of text and slowly scroll down and capture all of the information. Right click on the high lighted information and select copy.

This area would be a short description of a few sentences or a short paragraph describing the ORV are, the types of trails, difficulty, special features, general locations, etc.  Just as the title says, an overview.

[b]Directions:[/b]
Here is where the directions to the trail head are.  It's the "from I-5 north bound turn left onto . . ." type of directions.  For extra credit include directions on how to get to suggested rendezvous points if there is a good meeting spot prior to the trail head such as a gas station or favorite cafe.

South bound - these would be the actual directions from southbound, for instance.  Sub-subheadings to be underlined.

North bound - ditto directions for north bound or whatever direction the road approaches from

Meet-up location - directions for a good central meeting point prior to the trail head.  ideally gas station or restaurant.  Something easy to find.  And again sub-subheading underlined.

Map - Either provide a link or instert a google map embed or post a map image on the general wheel'n area.  If there is to be an embed or image have it centered.  If there are marks/flags on the map for points of interest list what they mean under the map.

[b]Permits / Fees:[/b]
Not Required/Yes Required As the title suggest, any fees or permits needed such as a NW Forest pass, etc.  Any parking costs for trailered rigs?

[b]Restrictions:[/b]
Mention any seasonal closing, such as the Naches trail that closes from mid-Nov. to Mid July.  Might also include contact info at the land jurisdiction (Nat. Forest Ranger's office for example) for specific info / dates.  Also, any other kind of restrictions.  Some trails are restricted to rigs under XX" in width because of tight trees.

[b]Trail Conditions:[/b]
Muddy?  Rocky?  Steep?  Any special conditions?  Do the conditions change with the seasons?  For example, the Liberty / Table mountain area trails can be pretty easy in the dry.  But as soon as there is a hint of moisture on the trails the clay-like soil becomes slick as snot.


[b]Trail Photos:[/b]
A collection of a few good photos of the different trails in the ORV area showing a variety of terrain. . . not just the most technical stuff.

Trail Photos


Rock Gate Entrance


Typical trail. Winding around between trees trying to avoid braking your mirrors off.


Many spots where you must climb up and through old tree stumps where the trees have been logged many years before.


This is a photo from near Upper Expressway. Its an odd spot on the trail. You drop down one way and all of the sudden you switch back and have to drop another way. Its pretty easy on a dry day, but when its pounding down rain it makes for a slipperly and sloshy drive.
