Hero: Northwest OHV Park A-8 - No Winch Hill
small-sr Icon

A-8 is an uphill rock garden trail heavily peppered with free-moving basketball-sized rocks. This trail is called No Winch Hill for a good reason. There are no trees large enough or anything anchored to the ground that could be used as a winch anchor if you get stuck. Because the large rocks are constantly moving, it is easy to snag differential-catching rocks that will put a pause on any forward momentum. Gathering traction from a dead stop in the middle of the hill climb can be nearly impossible. This trail is best suited for modified vehicles with large tires, skid plates, and traction aid devices.


Daily fees and annual passes can be purchased at the park gate with a card or cash, but both fees are cheaper if bought online.
