No kidding. . . and living in Kent it is almost literally in your back yard. It would probably take you less than an hour to get to the Naches trail head.

You also have Evan's Creek near by, too.

Plus, if you buzz up Hwy 18 to I-90 you can get to Liberty, the N. Cle Elum trails, and (when the roads are fixed) to the north side of the Manastash Ridge Trails in about 2 hrs.

And 3 hrs to Rimrock.

You are in a good spot in Kent for central access to the trails.

I know it's aways off but, anyone thinking a Naches run mid to late September? My girlfriend and I really want to check it out maybe camp halfway or on the east end (start in Greenwater?).

Keep my contact, I make a lot of short notice trips and would love to have another rig over Naches. It's a very nice trail. I usually take my 8 yr old son along.

I missed out on lupinsea's Naches/Manastash convoy, so I'm totally up for a mid-September run. Need to test out the new long arms and gears!

Just wanted to chime in, if anybody is planning a Naches trip at some point and looking for rigs, I'd probably be interested.

Totally new to me though, I've never been there and not looking to kill my rig. Stockish TJ, just has a lift and some 31's.

I mostly want to check it out because it looks to be one of the more scenic wheeling spots in WA, I'm not looking to challenge myself just yet.

Hey, another Florida transplant. Welcome to the area! I moved up here in 2009 from Florida for a better job and change of scenery/life. You will appreciate the vast terrain and weather this state has to offer. I'm happy to trade the WA state light rain for those nasty FL hurricanes. Hurricane Charley in 2004 nearly wiped out our house down there.

Haven't been down to Naches yet either, only drove the Paradise Loop last year (a good scenic on-the-pavement day drive). It'd be cool to take a ride down one of these days before the trails close.

-Steve

we just got orders to Port Angeles can't wait to get some real wheeling in. anything up on the olympic peninsula? not that Mt rainer is far but it would require a weekend trip. hoping there is some "long way home from work" type trails in my area.

I'm planning a Naches trip for 10/28. I've never been up there before and I'm looking for some other people who might be interested

Just went up there yesterday and was pleasantly surprised at a few challenges on the trail. Had to tow and winch up a couple street tire/open diff rigs. Good slippery, gooey mud.
