Trail Overview

L-1100 is located in the Yacolt Burn State Forest which is nestled at the base of the Cascade Mountain Range in Southwest Washington. These roads are well maintained and are gravel with very few potholes. There are houses and private property along this route for the first section of this trail. There are signs asking you to keeo your speed down due to dust and children. From there you will reach the Tarbell Campground along with the Tarbell trailhead where you can embark on a 24.75 mile hike of the area. There is a pit toilet available and a fire ring just up the trail from the bathroom. This is just one of the many hiking trails that is offered here in the Yacolt Burn State Forest. Continuing down the road you will find stunning views of Kloochman Butte which sits at an elevation of 2,529 feet. Dispersed camping areas are found along this route but they are primitive and do not offer running water or restrooms. Pack it in and pack it out rules apply as there are no garbage receptacles in the area. The Yacolt Burn State Forest has an active State Trust Lands Habitat Conservation Plan which incorporates the Spotted Owl, Salmon and the Marbled Murrelets. Old growth forests and new grown forests with pine trees, Douglas Fir and cedar line these forests. Discovery Passes are required and must be in the window at all times. This pass helps keep these areas well maintained for future and present use. Logging operations are being conducted in these areas so be mindful of blind corners as these roads are very narrow and winding.

Difficulty

L-1100 is a very well maintained gravel road and can be accessed by low clearance vehicles. There are steep grades and very steep drop off's so be mindful around blind corners as this road is very narrow. These roads aren't plowed during the winter months so traction devices, high clearance vehicles and big tires are recommended.
