Tahuya State Forest Run (WA)
Saturday March 16th 2013

This is an all day run to Tahuya State Forest. Tahuya State Forest is a 23,000-acre working forest located on the southeastern portion of the Hood Canal west of Belfair Washington in Mason County. This popular year-round destination area attracts more than 200,000 recreational users each year. Tahuya offers recreation opportunities for a variety of activities. We will be running the 6.7 mile 4x4 loop trail, it is rated easy. We will be meeting local wrangler forum members, who know the area and trail. They will be with us to show us the different parts of the trail and spurs of the trail.

Discover Pass is “REQUIRED” and enforced at the State forest.

We will meet at the Safeway located in Belfair Washington.

Large turn out with 21 Jeeps. Due to the size of our group, I did not get to attempt Yellow Jacket hill :(.

I did have a great time though :).

I even managed to get stuck on a relatively EASY rock garden :banghead:.

Great group and great run - what more could you want...:thumb:
