Mission Creek, Tahuya State Forest - TRAIL

Mission Creek, Tahuya State Forest - Trail, Mason, Washington

Quad and Moto trails. I only made about half the drescribed loop and still rode 16 miles. Avoid the 'singletrack' trails unless you have some specific beta on a trail - the ones I rode were narrow, rough and pointless, just bascially diversions for motorcycles.

Pros: flowy, nice berms, some short, fun descents, lots of trail mileage.
Cons: corners with abundant loose rock (do you know what 'glacial till' means?) Signage so-so. Climbs can be very loose. Wouldn't want to be on the trails when the motos are on the loose.

Tahuya is better after a rain or during a light rain because the trails are dusty during extended periods of clear, dry weather.
The trails go on for over 150 miles, with something for everybody including a decent rock crawl garden for you jeepsters.
If you are a beginner, go to Elphandahl Pass staging area. There you will find some of the best beginner stuff in the USA. You can find what you are looking for at Tahuya but because of that it can get crowded at times.
Bring a GPS the trails can get confusing. You will need a spark arrestor as well as a discovery pass to enjoy this area. Tahuya is a very special area, it caters to foot hikers, ATV riders, BMX, Polaris Razors types, horses and Dirt bike motorcycles.

The best routes are the ones that you are capable of completing. If you are on a 4x4 Jeep then stay on the 4x4 trail. If you are on a ATV then stick to the double track. BMX and MX riders can hit the single track, 4x4 trails and the double tracks. If you are an experienced rider the trails offer a varied trail experience. Their are some pretty steep trails and technical runs as well but for the most part these trails are where you want to go, to experience a varied terrain, hills, loose rocks, a sand and gravel pit and smaller jumps. These trails have foot bridges to cross rivers and streams.
