Prosser Hill OHV Area

Thursday, August 25, 2016

Alt Names

Last Known StatusOpen

This area mainly consists of one good motorcycle loop that is about 8 miles long. The motorcycle trail gets a bit technical in parts with some steep hills, big rocks, and some sharp cut-backs that require some experience and control.

There are various resting points where you can get a great panoramic view of the nearby reservior and mountains. There are other 4x4 roads and family-friendly routes that traverse the large surrounding area, but the only actual designated motorcycle trail is the 8 mile loop, accessible from the main staging area.

Nearby areas on the east side of the highway have additional trails and an MX track but finding an 'OHV legal' connecting route will prove difficult. You may have to drive.
