    Packwood, WA

    Hello all,
    The other day my buddy (On a 1967 CT90) and I went for a cruise around the Muddy Forks section of the Cowlitz river. Followed a couple old trails until they disappeared and just goofed around along the river. Even with one dump it was a great time. IMG_20181014_224001_393.jpgIMG_20181014_224001_392.jpg

    That looks like great weather and a great ride! One of my "regerts" is not having ridden a dual-sport while living in Pierce County for 4 years. I covered a lot of territory in my 4Runner! But, boy did i miss out on some incredible riding. There is a USFS Fire tower you can access from the Road Over the Top to Mt. Rainier. If you can find that on a map-there's some great riding and one of a kind scenery..you can see Mt. Rainer, Mt. St. Helens, Mt. Adams, Mt. Hood and a few others from that one location. I'll have to get back some day!

    Nice

    I managed to cobble together a little video of my trip up to Packwood Lake. Hope you dig it.

    I used to drive through Packwood on our way to ski White Pass back in the early 1980's, though I don't remember much (a long time ago it was). Wasn't into riding off pavement back then. Your video shows me of what I missed out back in my youth. I did drive over the pass later in the year after St. Helen's erupted. Ash was still everywhere and you would create clouds just from your cars cooling fan if you pull off the road. Guess that's about all I can remember from the Packwood area. Thanks for sharing.
