    Most of these were from 1 ride at Lake Wenatchee ORV area. There are a couple from Gifford Pinchot. Enjoy







    This one and the next one are a panaramic view.





    Gifford Pinchot, Hamilton Butte

    Ya know while riding some of these trails I found myself wondering...who the hell decided a trail here would be a good idea?? Then I get to the top and think...I cant believe this is legal.



    I love Washington...and meatballs.

    What JdubSC said...my adult diapers wouldn't hold enough! In some of the photo's the trail looks manageable, others...certain death! Gotta admit that they are great photo's though. Thanks for sharing.
    Hidden Content A ride in the woods helps me relax and release tension. The fact I'm dragging a body should be entirely irrelevant?

    You guys in America make me so envious with your stunning off road rides.



    If you took a motorized vehicle to any of the very few wilderness areas of the UK you would get hung, drawn and quartered, then the police would seize your bike and crush it. The last bit of that sentence is not an exaggeration. They do seize and crush vehicles here.

    Goldenhtr, how was the TW going up Klone peak? What gears did you run for that ride. I have ridden my TW in some pretty technical stuff, however not up anything that long and high.

    Not that bad, mostly 2-3 gear some first if someone in front of you had slowed down. We had 5 TW's and 1 KLR 650. Only a couple of us had ridin any single track so it was quite interesting. Myself and the guy on the 650 were the only ones.

    Here are some more pics of that ride. The one guy I took out with us flipped his TW 3 times. No damage other that to his ego, he would not listen to me when I told him to lean forward when going up the steep hills. Those blocks they put in to help with erosion did him in going up hill. Couple of crashes but the only damage was the KLR lost it's right tail light. We were going to camp at Twin Lakes but the bugs were to bad and no one wanted to turn around so we kept going on over Klone Peek and back down to the Eniat River road. Was a fun ride only problem was we were loaded down for camping with all the gear. So some up hill stuff was not easy but the TW's did great.

    Oh man your not kidding on the blocks man, I tell any new off roader that when crossing anything man made...dont trust it for traction. I got served up real good at walker valley on those blocks, I think they call them brick brack?? Anyways, I can imagine the steep hillside traverses were a bit sketchy with camping gear all piled on. I have never ridden any off road bike with gear strapped to it. I hope to do just that next summer on my TW. If you ever need a co pilot let me know...
