While the guide books point you to a paid parking area, just around the corner there is free parking. The free parking is located at these coordinates; 38.653722,-109.677894. Or, you can view it on Google Maps by CLICKING HERE.

The ride out to the bridges is just under 8 miles, and very scenic. There are several points of interest including the famous Gooney Bird Rock. The bridges themselves are 89 and 70 feet long, and both have a width of 26 feet. Since they are only 10 feet apart, they were close enough in proximity to be named after the famous Roman twins, Castor and Pollux.

Washington ATV Trails Adventure | Walker Valley ORV Video

Located just east of Mount Vernon, Walker Valley is a year round destination for ATV’s, motorcycles, and 4×4’s. The trails range from beginner to very challenging and there’s plenty of riding to keep any ATV enthusiast entertained for several days. The forest service roads and 4×4 trails provide quick access to many of the more remote ATV only trails, allowing you to explore all the area has to offer without having to back track on the same trail.

The elevation ranges between 500 to 3,000 ft. We do recommend that ride with others and take a GPS in addition to the trail maps. The trails are generally marked well, but the roads are not making it difficult to determine exactly where you’re at on the map.

We started our ride on the Muddled Meanderings trail. This is one of a few trails that takes you from the Walker Valley Road, up and into the maze of roads and trails. This trail can get rutted out, so expect a few spots where roots and deep ruts will cause you to choose your line carefully.

You’ll note that there are several trails that connect to the Muddled Meanderings Trail, making this an ideal starting point for your ride. The eastern half of this trail is very steep and should only be ridden by experienced riders.

Luckily, there are several other route options including taking the “Chris Cross” trail over to the Ridge Ram 4×4 trail, turning off early on the “Cavanaugh” trail, or doing what we did, and take the EZ Valley Connector. This is an easy ride on an ATV and very popular for jeeps and other 4X4’s.

Polaris ACE Skidplate Review | UTV Inc

We had a rock actually started to rip the stock skid plate which would get caught on more rocks and eventually cause more damage. The factory skid plate actually buckled from a rock hit and the bolt head sheared off. But before it sheared off, it tweaked the threaded hole in the frame. We had to straighten that hole out and tap new threads into it.

All of the bolts holding the stock plate on are vulnerable to being sheared off or damaged. The stock plastic skid plate only covers half of the undercarriage. In the rear, the plastic gives way to a very thin metal plate. That metal plate gets dented when hit by rocks, and does not spring back.

The UTV Inc skid plate is a very dense plastic called U H M W. This stands for Ultra – high – molecular – weight… …polyethylene. It is a VERY tough material, far tougher than regular plastic. This material will resist gouging and tearing, and keep its shape, bouncing back after rock hits. It is also very slippery, so you slide right over rocks or logs if you get high centered on them. The UTV Inc skid plate also features recessed holes to protect those bolt heads from being sheared off. The recessed bolts also help you slide over obstacles without getting hung up on them.

If you’re looking for better protection for your Polaris Sportsman ACE, be sure to head over to UTVInc.com and check out there skid plats.

Washington ATV Adventure | Manastash Ridge | Quartz Mountain | Part 2 of 2

We had originally planned to take the Tripod Flat trail, 4W307, connect with the Shoestring trail, 4W308, and then take the Manastash Ridge Trail, 4W306, all the way to Quartz Mountain. But when we got to the Shoestring trail head, it was closed due to the Manastash Ridge fire last August.
So we ended up taking the Tipover trail, 4W330, and it turned out to be quite an adventure. This trail is rocky, steep, and should only be ridden by experienced riders with 4 wheel drive ATV’s.
The tipover Trail is only 2.5 miles long, but it’s one of those trails that by the time you get to the end of it, you feel like you’ve been on it all day. Unfortunately for us, we had to ride it both ways.
It’s also a good idea to make sure you have a winch. We encountered a lot of snow on the trails and the winches definitely came in handy.

We had one last stop on our trip, Frost Mountain which is trail 4W310. You have to trailer to the trail head, but if you have the time, it’s worth the short drive. The trail is full of great hill climbs and the payoff is at the top with some amazing views.

Washington ATV Adventure | Manastash Ridge | Divide Trail 4W311 | Part 1 of 2

We setup camp at Riders Camp campground. From here you have access to most of the trails in the area.
To get to riders camp from Western Washington, take I-90 exit 101, head south on Thorp Highway, turn right on Cove Road, then right on Manastash road for just under 17 miles.
Trail 4W311, also called Divide Trail and Buck Meadows Trail, is roughly 6.3 miles in length. It’s one of our favorite trails in the area because it’s not too difficult, but keeps your attention. There’s also some great views of the Cascade and Stuart mountain ranges along this trail.
Be sure to keep an eye out for wildlife on this trail. We came across some elk off in the distance.
The LT Murray Unit of the LT Murray Wildlife area, is just over 54,000 acres of beautiful country.
There are green dot roads running throughout it and it’s a great ride for riders of all ages and skill levels.
If you haven’t already, be sure to check out our other videos covering the LT Murray Wildlife Area. You can find them on our youtube channel, youtube.com/waatva, and on our website.
