Nothing much around here. Straddleline ORV Park. More of a course for KOH points runs. Then Tahuya. In the spring the Natches Trail will open up.

Tahuya is stock friendly. There's a few pucker spots but for the most part a stock wrangler can handle it. Anything hard and out of your comfort level has a bypass.

It was fun!!! Tinkham road was so tranquil... It was like an hour ride with a few stops to let the dog out and explore the woods. Definitely full of snow and no turning around so make sure you know you won't want to turn back. I have a couple videos ill try to post to YouTube. Definitely an easy ride.... And my phone had service the whole time.

There's a pretty cool cut away trail in the black hills. It's a straight shot but great for working technique. Bigger rigs would find it boring. Stock rigs get a great challenge. Directions are tricky but next time I go ill post a grid or map image.

As far as I know they're legal (with discover pass). Maintained also.

That sounds intriguing. Please post directions when you can!

Capital forest, we went up from the waddell creek side all the to the peak and came out rock candy side. Tons of fun the hole we got stuck in doesn't look like much but the moment you roll into it, it just drops.

When did a discovery pass become required? I've wheeled there many times thoughout the years and have never been told I needed one or asked if I had one, maybe I just got lucky... I finished all the pieces for my front bumper today and will do the final welding in the morning about 8am... I feel naked with no winch so I hope to have it all on and ready to go but I don't know where I can buy a discovery pass between now and then so maybe I should wait I don't know... Suggestions???

It is a 50/50 chance. We have been asked for it in the staging area a couple of times. And once on the trail. It is $124 for not having one. As Free mentioned, they are just about every where.
