Highlights

Highlight: Sadie Creek - Radiator Hill
Radiator Hill is situated on DNR land in a 4x4 park called Sadie Creek Multi-Use Trail System. There are four trails that weave through forests of varying ages and some clear-cut areas. Radiator Hill has some seriously difficult hill climbs and three very significant mud obstacles that will be present during the rainy season. What compounds these two factors is the fact that the trail twists and turns tightly through old growth forest. There are trees at every turn that are begging to give you a kiss and mark your fender flares or maybe a big hug as you slam into them off-camber. While this park may not be very large and only has four short trails, the trails very tight and the presence of mud will make this a pretty difficult task for most vehicles no matter what the build.

Mapping Crew - Washington

Michael Graham is retired from the U.S. Army as an Infantry First Sergeant with 23 years of service. He did a tour in Iraq and one in Afghanistan. He presently owns a Process Service Company in Tacoma. He is originally from Upstate New York but after being stationed in Washington knew immediately that this part of the county felt like home. He had a Jeep CJ5 as his first 4x4 but back in the 80's there wasn't a lot of hype and add-on parts as there are today. Building your rig is half the fun, making it your own style. He has actually found it to be an addiction. He lives in the Pacific Northwest, in the Tacoma / Puyallup area and loves the sport of "wheeling" which allows access to so much more than a hiking trailhead. He enjoys organized rides and poker runs and the freedom and exploration this sport allows. Finding this website and authoring trail write-ups has really enhanced this sport for him. If you are new to the sport or just looking for someone to show you the trails he would love to hear from you.
