Do you like in the Pacific Northwest or surrounding area?
Are you planning a trip to the Pacific Northwest or surrounding area?
Maybe you want to find some more people to ride with or get information on riding areas.

You can discuss that here in this thread.

You need a Forest Service pass. You can pick one up in Burnett, WA at the gas station on the way there for $5. You do not need a Discover Pass for this area.
The campground is closed. There is one trail segment that has gates and that sometimes closes seasonally depending on snow.
But the rest of it is open year round, and I doubt that gate is closed now because the snow level is higher than the ORV area.
If I am wrong, which is unlikely, we could go to Elbe or Tahuya instead so the day wouldn't be a complete bust.

Hi all,

First post, too long on the side line.
So I believe I may be the person in Bothell that 70cyclone was mentioning. I have my own trailer n ride that's ready to roll, thanks for the offer on the ride Scoundrel.
After researching the Evans Creek trails I found that both the campground and trail system is closed till 4/1/15. I phoned the Forest Service Enumclaw office to verify, the ranger confirmed all trails are closed for another 3 weeks.

Respectfully,
Snuffy

Welcome to the forum!
The ride share offer was also to share fuel costs, but if you prefer to drive separately, that's fine.

I have been to Evans Creek about 8 - 10 times, a couple of them recently, during the "closed" period. Only the campground is closed. There aren't even any gates on most of the trails. there is one trail with gates on either end that can be closed seasonally, and it's a small segment of the whole system. I've never seen those gates closed in all of the times I have been there. I don't know who you talked to, but what they are telling people on the phone and what is actually happening are two different things.

However, if you are more comfortable, we could go to Tahuya instead. There are only about 10 miles of trails ride-able by an ACE, but it is still worth a trip. And it is definitely open year-round.

Thanks Scoundrel, Your insight is appreciated and trusted, I'm on-board. Thanks for the ride offer, just trying to break-in the trailer & dial in my hauling technique.
Count me in, picked up my NW forest pass today. I'll be at the Burnett Chevron at 10am tomorrow.
