4x4 Magazine 4WD how to article 47Located within the boundaries of Tahuya State Forest, the ORV Park in Northwest Washington is a spiderweb of trails. Home to many outdoor activities, including hiking, biking and horseback riding, trail riding is welcome.

You’ll need a map, a pass, and most days – a snorkel, but don’t let that deter you.  The area receives plenty of rainfall, no matter the time of year, but that just adds to the challenge. Tree-lined trails lead to hard-packed roads. You’ll find some rock, but mostly tree roots provide the obstacles on the trails. When traversing the mud puddles aka lakes, always watch for submerged items. There are plenty of tree stumps under the surface.  The trails include stockish areas and harder bypasses, but overall would be considered medium terrain for all.4x4 Magazine 4WD how to article 790

There are two staging areas – Elfendahl Pass and Mission Creek, in addition to 84 miles of trails. Not all trails permit 4×4’s – some are exclusive to ATV’s and motorcycles.  It’s great to find a multi-use area available to all.

Directions: From Belfair, take SR-300 for 3.5 miles. Turn right on Belfair-Tahuya Road and go 1.9 miles. Turn right on Elfendahl Pass Road and go 2.3 miles. Trailhead is on right.4x4 Magazine 4WD how to article 49
