New jeep guy in SW WA

I'm in Washougal, just bought my first Wrangler (98 TJ) and am interested in any local clubs in the SW Washington area that are active in trail rides, technical support, etc. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Welcome to the club! I'm at the opposite corner of the county from you, up in La center. There are a number of wheelin' clubs here, but unfortunately no ORV-friendly trails in SW Washington. There was a jeep rally today in vancouver that was fund-raising to develop a trail in the Yacolt burn site, it was alot of fun. Hopefully they are successful and we can finally get our first designated ORV trail!

Usually I go out towards the Swift reservoir. There's some decent spots once you get into the Gifford Pinchot if you wanna play on some rocks. Woodland Bottoms also has some decent mud holes. I mostly use the jeep to get to those hard to reach camping/hiking areas, but if you poke around enough, you'll find some decent trails made by the hunters and loggers.

renton alright, we usually go to a few places, one over by bremerton called Belfair (tahuya) thats they easiest place, another by Mt. Rainier one called evans creek, one elbe hills, one by cle elum there is a little town called liberty, and another the biggest in washington is Nachese. thats about all of them around here really... a few others but im not exactly sure where they are and im pretty sure they are pretty hard.

I have only been to evens creek once and we spent the day running just about every trail up there. I'd say its probably my favorite place to wheel locally soo far. we went this summer when it was pretty dry and had no problems what so ever but with a little rain or snow i could see it changing quite a bit and being a lot harder to get through. Id recommend getting a few people that have been there before to take you out for your first time just because they know what to expect on the trails.

you should check out this site. there seems to be quite a few really good local people on there with a lot of knowledge about both the trails and jeeps. they also seem to try and get runs to gether pretty often. maybe you could join one some time!

I went to Tahuya over Labor day, I had a great time. Just got my new BFG All Terrians and they were great tires. The trails are really fun, I am new to the Jeeping world so they were perfect to cut my teeth on. I was out there with my buddy who had his bronco. Cant wait to go again, hopefully there will be a little mud next time.

I'm in Vancouver, I really like to go up to silver star mountain. there are a lot of fun trails up there. They are old logging trails and lots of places to go off the path.

xtrmtj, what is the latest news on the Yacolt burn?

Sorra XtrmTJ, my computer broke down so haven't been on in a while. I remember the PW guys, even grabbed a business card. After I get my jeep back up and running and buy a new computer I'll go check out the site and sign on. Always looking to do volunteer work, especially out in the woods and even more so when it involves jeeps. I do alot of camping/hiking around swift and the YB area, would love to see a developed ORV out there.

What are the trails like up in the Yacolt Burn Area? What's the difficulty rating, or how extreme is it? And how experienced does the driver need to be?
