There is usually a big mayhem thing at Naches Memorial day weekend. Not like it's a group run from one particualr club, forum, or organization, but 1000+ group campouts, trail runs, bike rides, jeep runs, ATV runs and the like. Likely this year there will be a lot of snow that will keep people out of the highlands. The Naches trail is still closed, and surely will still be snowed in this year.
I've gathered that eventually it's possible that the USFS will close some of the Naches stuff till after memorial day weekend at some point in the future (part of the master forest management plan over there, but that's a whole different topic of discussion). I've been there Mem day weekend on the bike, and it's a HUGE "CF" so to speak. way too many people jammed in to an area that won't support that many people.
I won't be making it over there until late June at the earliest because the DRZ will be getting ridden heavily from now until father's day weekend. (speaking of which, it needs maintenance!!)
One year, the mayhem and madness at naches on Memorial day weekend was so intense, I packed up and left a day early, it was just insane all the knuckleheads on ATVs ripping around through other people's camp areas, kids pit riding their XR-80s and other assorted pit bikes. Naches got crossed off my list for memorial day weekend outings for doing overnight trips.
