About ATV Trails in Washington State

Visiting from out of state? Or just curious about the various riding areas in Washington State? Here’s a quick general overview of the riding.

Western Washington ATV Trails

Western Washington offers true ATV trails, some of them being 48″ width restricted. All of the trails are on Washington State Department of Natural Resource managed land. Capitol State Forest, Tahuya, and Walker Valley are all less than 1.5 hours from Seattle. Capitol Forest offers the most ATV only trails, with Tahuya and Walker Valley offering a mix of ATV and 4X4 trails to enjoy. Tahuya is most appropriate for beginners.

Central Washington ATV Trails

Central Washington Offers a different experience for riders. This region includes trails in the Cascade Mountain range, with most of them close to the Cle Elum and Ellensburg areas. Almost all of the trails in this area are 4X4 trails, but they are a blast on an ATV. Some are very technical, but it is completely different than the tight ATV only trails of Western Washington. Some of our favorite areas include Hawkins Mountain, Colockum Wildlife Area, LT Murray, and Manastash Ridge.

Eastern Washington ATV Trails

There is very little ATV only trails in Eastern Washington. While there are some riding opportunities in the Colville National Forest and at Moses Lake, there are thousands of miles of riding just over the border in ATV friendly Idaho.
