Sorry to inform you that eastern WA is limited on places to go.

You could always go out to the 7 Mile ORV Area in Riverside State Park. But after several visits, that may very well get boring!

You could also go up to the Colville NF. There are 5 "unmaintained Jeep trail" NW of Kettle Falls.

If you want to go you should first stop at the BLM Map Office at 1103 North Fancher Road and get copies of the Motor Vehicle Use Maps (MVUM). These are legal documents/maps and are being enforced! They show which trails are authorized for OHV use and what times of the year you are allowed to travel on them. These maps are also on the Colville NF web site. You should also obtain a copy of the Colville NF Visitor Map as the MVUM only shows motorized trails and is somewhat limited as to the other stuff in the Colville. Armed with the Visitor Map and the MVUM, you will have everything you need. Many of the trails in the Colville are not marked so you really need to know where you are going! Not sure if you can purchase a copy of the Colville NF Visitor Map at the BLM Map Room, but I know it's for sale at NW Maps in downtown Spokane (the MVUMs are free!; there are 4 of them for 2010).

Probably the best area(s) are in the northern ID Panhandle. I belong to the North Idaho Trail Blazers (NITB) and they generally have 3 to 5 trail rides each month. They wheel in the Idaho Panhandle National Forest. There are quite a few miles of trails over there.

If you need more information, or want to see the maps, e-mail me as I have all the maps in printed versions and on my laptop.

I'd love to join a couple people on the trail. I don't really know where to go that is better than a logging road. Most of the places I have gone are dirtbike trails and quad trails. Email me some of those maps. maybe I could join you guys some time

Be very careful driving on quad and dirt bike trails. In many places, trails are now being designated for the type(s) of OHV use and you do not want to be caught driving a 4x4 on a trail designated only for ATVs or dirt bikes. The consequences can be expensive!

Rather than e-mail you those maps, take a look at the following:

http://www.wohva-map-catalog.org

Some of us are planning on getting together on Sunday, May 230 at 10 AM in the parking lot at the 7 Mile ORV Park to just play around for a while. You are welcome to come and join us. These will be mostly folks from the North Idaho Trail Blazers (we meet at the Post Falls Cabela's on the first Wed of each month at 6:30 PM.

I will have copies of the Colville NF MVUMs and the Coeur d'Alene River Ranger District MVUM at our get together on Sunday, May 30th.

"Old thread?"

While it may be an old thread, nonetheless the information is still current!

I'm going to assume there aren't a lot of rocks up that way? I currently live in Meridian but will be moving to CDA fairly soon?

Depends upon what quantity you mean by "lot of rocks."

While the ORV park is 600 acres - most of which is either dirt or sand, there is a rock garden. Originally consisted of 11 (13?) rocks, but has been enlarged. Doesn't have any height to it because the rocks have been spread out, but is of a decent size - I think!

I do know of several places in the northern Idaho panhandle where the entire trail is nothing but rocks. In fact, one is nothing but rocks and fallen logs!

Take a look at several of my Photobucket albums showing the rock garden at 7 Mile. At least one shows me driving across it.

There are several individuals around town that do have rock crawling buggies, but since I don't own one, I'm not sure where they go.

When is "fairly soon" as in getting here?

Thanks for the info, any chance you can post up some links to your pics? I searched photobucket but couldn't find you? I have an account there but I host my pictures on my own site so I'm not real familiar with it?

Will definitely get in touch, looking forward to some wheeling. I'm generally a rock guy and my XJ (build thread in sig) is built for the rocks so I'm pretty sure this will be interesting!

And I plan on being in CDA over the 4th but then I'll be heading back down here for a little while to do some wheeling and finish up some loose ends. I'm not entirely thrilled about leaving the area so basically I'll be in Meridian until my wife says get back to CDA and get a job (which probably won't take long)


Here are some of my videos...

And my Jeep pics can be found here under Jeep Runs.

I'm not that much of a rock person as my 07 Rubicon is also my daily driver (I prefer trail riding), so don't want to mod it too much (is excellent stock).

Some mods are in the works (2.5-inch lift and bigger tires - from current 32s to 35s); nothing as drastic as your XJ!

Awesome. That is obviously a well built XJ.

Thanks and I also have a '99 WJ with a 2" BB and 31's that I take out once in a while too.

A buddy of mine (Dogman here on JF) is actually coming up there somtime in mid July (16th or 17th?) and was talking about going to 7 Mile and also looking for some other stuff. He and I will probably be in contact.

EDIT: Nice Rubi, it's nice to see a 2 door!

That figures I'll be out of the area from July 6th thru Jul 22nd. Otherwise I'd be glad to show you around. Check out this web page - shows everything at 7 Mile (has a satellite image with annotations):
WOHVA WA State Off-Highway Catalog :: Riverside State Park ORV Area

It's part of a WA State OHV organization I'm a member of. I've taken on this project to build a one-stop web site showing all the OHV area/roads/trails (ATV, 4x4, dirt bike, and MX) in WA.

Yea, I decided since it's only myself, why pay more for the 4-door?
And yes, I do wheel it!
