centralia trails?

hey guys i am planning a centralia trip with some friends and although i love exploring and finding legal "unmarked" trails i would like to have some go to spots that i know there are some trils. i was there once before bandit1 this is a shout out to you! you did a great job of organizing the last one! also my wife and some others are into the town and wanna check it out more. anyone know how the locals feel about "outsiders"? we are in support of their choice to live whereven they want so we wouldnt be like mean or anything. so if anyone can send me directions to trailheads legal powerlines, fireroads, google maps tag it or watever. any help is much obliged!!

I've been doing some research about Centralia & it's story thru Google. It has taken absolutely no time @ all to get interested in making the trip to see it for myself.

I have no info to offer...@ the moment. I was wondering when you may be going & if you're looking for other Jeeps to go??

Bear Valley, abandoned highways 22 & 61...found these by watching youtube. There are other trail videos...just not sure of names. I think there are some abandoned railroads around there too.
If you can find an old map & compare it to a recent map...you may find some good trails. I assume locals are used to seeing 4x4s & answering questions...not positive though.

In that area, everything seems ok till you hit the black dirt (coal companys). which the place is surrounded by them with live dig sites

There are about 10 'locals' still living in Centralia. Stay off their yards, and don't be a ******bag. Coal companies own 99% of the land around; if you see a no trespassing sign... turn around. there is a annual pass available from one of the coal companies to permit access to their lands (except active mining areas) for about 100 bucks. Research is your friend. I found the info once, it's out there.

The technical advice you get from me here is worth exactly what you paid me for it. Warranty issues will be reimbursed at double what you paid me for the advice.
