Overview

The Rimrock Recreation Area holds the most 4x4 trails available in one area in Washington State. Without counting there are at least 30-40 trails to explore. Some are easier but most of these trails will be for more built rigs with at least a 2-inch lift and larger more aggressive tires. The trail called "Shorty" is short but don't let this deceive you, this trail can be quite a challenge especially in the spring when melting snow tops off the mudholes and in the fall when the seasonal rains start in. The soil in this area is clay and when it is wet it is very slippery and will clog all-terrain tires rendering them useless slicks. Aggressive mud-terrain tires will be what's needed and even then, you'll be winching for sure. In the Summer months, this trail is fairly easy but might be a bit too difficult for stock vehicles. The views of the surrounding cliffs are amazing and are a great incentive for surviving the mud, twists, and turns that make this trail a real challenge.
