The legality of wheeling Centralia is not clear. It is however hazardous for a number of reasons and neither technically challenging nor particularly interesting. Yes, there are the remnants of a town, but you don't need an offroad vehicle to see that. Driving above a mine fire that has been burning for 40+ years is not a bright idea, as the ground could well give way in an area that was 'safe' to drive on just a year ago.
Those that reccommend Centralia as a 'wheeling destination' should be sure to note these facts when posting.
Now, there ARE some legal wheeling areas around there, but for it to be legal requires a 100/yr permit from the mining company that owns all the land around there.
