Trail Information

Highlights

Trail # 520 within the "Evans Creek ORV" area is one of a dozen or so trails available in this park designated for 4x4 use, for a total of over 45 miles of trail riding. Evans Creek is a great destination for a weekend get-away as it has its own Campground with 23 spaces for use with tents or RV's. This trail is one of the more interesting trails with steep elevation climbs, nail-biting narrow turns and some snow at higher elevations, depending on the time of year. There are also many views of nearby Mt. Rainier and other alpine vistas. Trails are well marked and even rated from "Easy" to "Most Difficult"

Great trail, something for everyone. steep scrambles, large rock (boulder) slide, gorgeous views, a hill climb one of my wheeling partners lovingly referred to as axel-break... and sure enough on our way up there was a Toyota that broke an axel getting towed up. A good spotter will be a great asset on this trail. one in my group was a purely stock sport Jeep Wrangler, being a very experienced wheeler, made it up without incident. beautiful view points along the way. these trails can get a little crowded on nice days during the summer months.

Attempted this trail from the End Point and could not get up the hill due to deep snow. If you attempt this trail be ready to turn around. Need about 3 more weeks for all the snow to go away. I'm attaching a map of "Evans Creek" that you might find helpful in getting around and keeping oriented.

I was up mapping some other trails in the Evans Creek area and was told that this trail is open up to about Waypoint 6. You can bypass the rest of the trail and come down using either Trail 198 or 197. Thes two are definitely open and passable and will soon be on the website.
