Trail Information

Highlights

Tahuya State Forest ORV area is a great 4x4 destination for beginners up to seasoned veterans. While this forest trail system does have some challenging man-made rock gardens, for the most part, the only hindrance to stock vehicles would be the depth of some 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. But some trails are definitely not for beginners. This makes it the perfect place for beginners to gain some skills before attempting more difficult trails. There is not really a good map produced that shows all of the trails in this park as some are 4x4, some are for motorcycles/ATV's, and some are just for walking/mountain biking. This trail write-up is called "84N". 84N is a loop trail that can be run in either direction. On this trail, you will encounter large mud-pits in the spring and fall months. There are also some stunning views of the surrounding "Olympic Mountains." This is just one of the many routes to explore in this ORV area. As a reminder, always tread lightly, stay on the trails, and follow the purple 4x4 triangles for other trails in the park.

Lots of updates to the trails since you mapped it. We went today and there were some great additions and new signs put up. Many of new trails are not on your map- but in general they way finding is helpful.

Super fun for my first time. Stock 4xE Willy’s. There was one spot that I had to back track from but other than that great.

100% not an "Easy" trail. Easy trails on this site are like graded forest service roads and sometimes even paved roads with scenic views. The main trail should probably be like a 4 or a 5 - there are some pretty big roots to go over, some rocks that are big enough to tickle your skid plates, some pretty steep breakover angle-testing hills, and really tight, narrow squeezes between trees or between dirt walls that can lead to body damage if you make a mistake. And if the rock gardens at Waypoint 1 and the boulder hill climb at Waypoint 2 are the optional lines, the optional difficulty should probably be like an 8 or 9. It really seems like this trail was rated Easy for Tahuya (which I'd agree it is), but for the consistency on the website with all the other non-OHV trails, this really isn't an "Easy." All that said, I went out today just for a fun, quick off road drive. Tahuya's right next to my house, so I go over there a lot when I'm bored. It's a really nice trail, decent scenery of the Olympics, and enough difficulty to keep the driver engaged. 4Low is probably not required, but definitely recommended for stuff like Axlebreaker. Trail was closed just beyond Waypoint 3 due to trail maintenance. I'm guessing the Quadrapaws are out doing some trail improvements.

It was an easy trail for my lifted JKU and son's bone-stock 2004 TJ. Lots of water at the top, though nothing too deep for the TJ. Highly recommended for a family run with small children aboard.
