I've been wanting to tour Centralia for a while! I probably can't make it this month but I'd love to get in on a trip later in the year!

I'd be interested in going to Centralia and meeting some ppl from the forum. I never knew there were many trails down there. From maps and exploring around I've only ever found a few trails, and I've heard most of them are for quads.

What dates are you looking to go? Are you talking this weekend or in a few weeks?

My buddy from work and I were talking about Centralia just a few days ago.

As far as camping i dont know, im going to guess not. trail wise, im going to guess easy, require 4x4 at most, nothing to extreme. I am planning to go saturday feb 13. Depending on weather, sounds like were about to get slammed, but as of now I am still expecting to go on that date.

Thanks for all the good info, I'll google earth the area again and pin point the locations you mentioned. Sounds like you know your stuff. I have noticed that there are plenty of active mines still in the area. I'll be sure to post some pics from the trip. Thanks again nuttier.
LOL, thats funny, I am gettin older now, and LOL have one lil guy who is 6, so yeah the fatherly instincts kinda kick in, but yeah the area is kinda sketchy, and just blazing around aimlessly could get you in some bad stuff quick.. LOL I could tell you all kinds of horror stories from the area of ppl being killed, offroading throughout the years in the area.. yeah there really are a lot of active mines still in the area, and they do have a lot of troubles with ppl vandalizing the equipment.. So try to stay clear of those areas for sure... Hey are you guys still going if we get this blizzard?,... I may just go to Maryland and travel backroads with 18-24 inches of snow in the northern section, and drifting being higher, this may be fun...

Thats funny. I'm planning to go NEXT weekend on the 13th. I assume by then the snow will be passable but who knows. I'll be sure to play it safe and be smart.

State officials say the fire continues to burn uncontrolled and could for hundreds of years, until it runs out of fuel. One of their biggest concerns is the danger to tourists who often cluster around steam vents on unstable ground.
