Trail Information


Tahuya State Forest ORV area is a great 4x4 destination for beginners up to seasoned veterans. While this forest trail system does have challenging man-made rock gardens, for the most part, the only hindrance to stock vehicles would be the depth of the standing water in the fall, spring, and winter months and, of course, the Rock Gardens that were put in for more modified rigs. Tahuya has been nick-named "2-wheel Tahuya" as most of the trails are fairly easy. This makes it the perfect place for beginners to gain skills before attempting more difficult trails. There is not really a good map of the trails in this park, as some are 4x4, some are for motorcycles/ATVs, and others are just for walking/mountain biking. JBX is just one of the many routes to explore in this Tahuya ORV area. JBX is a connector trail that can be run in either direction. The trail has large mud pits in the spring and fall months and the Twin Ponds Play Area, where parking on the rocks and taking pictures is a must. There are also stunning views of the surrounding Olympic Mountains. As a reminder, always tread lightly, stay on the trails, and follow the purple 4x4 triangles for other trails in the park.

Difficulty Accuracy: Spot On

A good trail. I'd say the difficult is pretty spot on at 3. There's some off camber stuff and some tight corners, but nothing crazy. Of course, if you want to go down to The Lake at waypoint 3 and pretend your Jeep is a submarine, that's gonna be harder than a 3. But as far as the trail goes, it was a good one for any stock rig with some factory skids.

This is a connector trail but it has a lot of tight turns and fun. You would use this trail to get to the twin lakes play area.
