Yeah... u can take the Seattle to Bremerton Ferry. When you use Google maps just make the starting port the Bremerton Ferry and it will shoot you onto highway 3 south, where u will drive through Gorst on towards Belfair. In Belfair u will take a right at Safeway, then follow the road to Sand Hill Rd which goes to Tahuya.

Tahuya is a nice little place to wheel, but dont expect anything to technical. Its not a bad place but its rather tame. There a two little rock gardens if you want to test you rock crawling skill. And on the outer western perimeter is a big mud hole to play and splash in. All the trails can be passed with a stock Jeep to give you an idea, but if you have a mod'd rig it will just be that much easier. good luck have fun. if i had my Jeep id come with, its back in Ellensburg.

sweet,that's how it looked to me.I moved up here about two years ago,still learning my way around;-) Tahuya will be just what I want,need a good place for first wheeling in this rig.Plus it's the closest I can find with the ferry.Guestimate drive time from the ferry to the trail?

Thanks for the info,I need some trail partners or find a group out here.Is there any good stuff in Ellensburg? I have been up around Teannaway with some friends before,looked like alot of possibilities.

Ellensburg is over flowing with 4x4 spots, most trail heads are less than a 20 minute drive north or south from down town. Some super hard trails, lots of medium and easy trails. Also hundreds of miles of dirt roads leading everywhere. I put over 2000 miles on my jeep just in the hills this summer. Its a sweet spot for off roading.

I used to live in PO and spent a lot of time in Tahuyah. Just be watch out for the qads they are oblivious to jeeps.

Whenever you're using google or Bing maps, you can adjust their routing by placing your cursor over the course line, click & hold, and then drag it to the ferry terminal area. It will figure out what you want it to do and rewrite the directions.

No one has mentioned this yet, but as long as there's no traffic, the drive around beats the ferry everytime. Especially if you end up waiting for the ferry which you probably will.

With a CJ though, the ferry does save lots of freeway driving, and they serve beer on that particular ferry.

I'm headed out to Tahuya Saturday, Yellow 2dr JK.

The Tacoma Narrows route beats the Ferry any day of the week. It's a $4 toll on the return trip only and doesn't really add any time especially if you consider ferry traffic on the weekends.

And a lot less wear & tear on your rig...not any cheaper really, pay for the gas or the ferry...the best thing about taking the ferry home to Seattle is if you've got some sort of damage after your run. There's something called the Tahuya curse..."It's only Tahuya..."

I don't know that an hour of on-road driving constitutes "a lot of wear and tear"...no more so than a day of wheeling at Tahuya! :-P Missed you on WAVJC lately ROM! How's things been going?

It's been going pretty good! Upgraded my front axle shafts recently, To Superior Evolution Series, and about to install some sliders and other misc. aesthetic improvements.

Regarding WAVJC, I'm no longer willing to contribute/post or participate. My reasoning has everything to do with admin, though I miss the people a lot. Many of whom played instrumental roles in my early wheeling experiences, Anyway...make no mistake, my resentment towards WAVJ administrators run deep. As a result...

I spend my time here on the Tj Technical Forum and PNWJeep; PNWJeep.com • User Control Panel • Login

Hopefully we'll wheel together again, soon!

Later,
~John

OMG....tell me about it. I felt really bad after taking a guy from JF around Tahuya from Monroe. I kept saying how easy it was...yatta yatta yatta, next thing we know he breaks a u-joint in his driveshaft. Of course he didnt have a spare, so i had to leave him and drive my Jeep back to Belfair to pick one up.

Now im always hesitant to say how "easy" Tahuya is....
