Trail Information


Mountain View is situated in Washington DNR land in a park called the "The Yacolt Burn." This is the highest trail in the Yacolt Burn OHV. This trail has you climbing up and breaking out onto a clear-cut area with fantastic views of the surrounding valleys and Mt. Adams about 30 miles to the east. After the views, you begin to run downhill, winding and twisting through a stump forest with roots and stumps begging to kiss your fenders as you make your way back to the west into the Yacolt Valley. The spring flowers on this trail are just amazing and are a must-see spectacle that doesn't get any better.

The trail is in good shape and was very fun. It provided no serious challenges. The qualifiers at the beginning of 'Old Ugly' and the end of 'Mountain View' were not difficult. They just require careful tire placement. I think a stock 4x4 could do it, although rock sliders and skid plates would be wise. The views were awesome!

Fantastic trail for stock-ish/slightly lifted rigs! My ‘01 Grand Vitara makes it through just fine with it’s stock suspension and slightly over-sized tires. Have to access from Hagen Creek though as of Nov. 6th 2021 due to the usual gate being shut, which I would say is a slightly tougher trail to get through without a lift. Highly recommend!

Thoroughly enjoyed this trail both ways in my beefy-tires-but-otherwise-stock 4th gen 4runner. Nice climbs and descents, stone and stump obstacles. No slipping or high-centering. Jeeps were eating this up for breakfast with nary a concern. So something like a stock 4runner gives you a little more of a moderate experience. With a couple of pullouts with nice views to the east and to the northwest.
Temporary Closure

Went for a ride this morning and found that DNR (assumed) has closed the trailhead with large logs and boulders. Looks to be more on the permanent side of closures. Would like to hear feedback on this if anyone has information. Possible seasonal closure? The DNR website list the trails in this area as closed seasonally on Dec. 1.

Organized a "Trailsoffroad" trail run to cover all the trails in the "Yacolt Burn ORV". We ended up with five jeeps and two Subarus. Watching the Subaru's master these trails in their own special way was a "hoot". The trails are in great condition and a definite "must do" if you have never been here. There are several new trails that are being worked on, so hopefully we will see some great additions in the future.
