Trail Overview

15 minutes outside of the quaint town of Eatonville, you'll find one of the locals' favorite OHV areas. This 8.1-mile trail accesses the Elbe Hills OHV Area from the west side and boasts several offshoots for dispersed camping. It has openings with amazing territorial views on a clear day, and moody photos when cloudy. The majority of the drive is smooth gravel and dirt trails, however, there are sections of it where potholes are plentiful. When paired with the heavily washboarded sections, you'll be calling your chiropractor once you're back in cell service. Despite signage along the trail clearly stating shooting is not allowed, there is obvious evidence that shooting does occur out here. Dispersed camping is allowed within the Elbe Hills State Forest. A Discover Pass is required to access and camp within State Forest land.
