Look up Evens Creek and Elbe Hills

We still need to hit evans creek. We seem to always end up in Elbe. But to Elbes credit it's always a bit different.

I'm looking to hit some easy/fun trails with my stock jk on a Sat or Sunday. Anyone interested in joining sometime? I live in Seattle.

D L 01-23-2013 02:08 AM

Actually Tahuya sounds awesome for this Sat. Anyone in?

Ill have a ZJ built here soon then I'd be up for it. YJ is going down for a couple years to be built into a buggy.

D L 01-26-2013 02:36 AM

We are set to head out tomorrow around 10am. Anyone want to head out there with us tomorrow?

Yup, I have seen this website. Thanks though. I am planning to start some offroading on easy trails once I get used to the stick :)

I'd love to find some logging roads to try, but they all seem off limits. :-(

HecticWrangler 02-14-2013 11:31 PM

I think the bf and I are heading to north bend area to check out trails on Saturday. Maybe exit 38 or something for logging roads. We were considering Tahuya, but we wanna hit up snoqualmie falls while we're in the area.

My jeep is still a mud virgin need some baby trails.... also need advice on flooring, the carpeting and my dog's hair... Ugh enough! Also new member first bought new 2012 Jeep in aug 2012.... Rough winter. Hoping to start enjoying my Jeep... It's why I bought it. Any groups out there?

HecticWrangler 02-18-2013 05:07 PM

I also am looking for some beginner trails. This stock 87 YJ is just that, 26 year old stock YJ. Need to lift it and revitalize the suspension but, until then, I would like to get it out there and try some easier trails... Any one want to get out there some time soon?

There's a pretty cool logging road up in North Bend that's open to the public, I've taken my Jeep out a few times and it's pretty fun. Plenty of potholes, mud, and snow, not to mention beautiful scenery. It's also almost 25 miles long. Definitely fun if you just want to get your Jeep dirty!

I would like to find the road, maybe even get a few newbies together and have a little fun?

Yea! Like I said, it's not a trail so much as a road, but still a hoot!

If you paste these coordinates into Google Maps, I've marked the start of the forest road, and from there you just follow it, all the roads that veer off are all gated and locked, so don't worry about getting lost. If ya got a shotgun, bring it on out, plenty of places to shoot, as well as camp. There are weirdos out in North Bend though :nonono:

Ya, I know about some of these people but, I think they can be worked around. Should get a few ppl together and try it out as a meet and greet if nothing else. There are some new people on here that would like to go I am sure. At any rate, thanks for the coordinates and the tip :punk:

That would be a great. I've modded and upgraded, and I search for trails, but I don't have any local Jeep buddies. I always fly solo :D which is a terrible idea.

Ya. Going out solo I am sure is not a very good idea. Let's see if we can get a few together and set a time? I am down. What kind of mods and upgrades have you done? Got to get mine out of the stock range. The jeep swap meet is coming up and we will see.
