Other Names

MT. Baber ATV Trails, Salmon Creek, Deer Creek

Last Known StatusOpen

The Mount Baber ATV Club maintains about 32 miles of ATV and dirt bike trails that wind through a checkerboard of private timber companies and state owned land. The area offer a wide variety of terrain that ranges from hard packed and loose graveled roads to narrow and twisty ATV trails with short to steep rugged climbs and descents.

The club also hosts four poker runs and other family friendly events throughout the year. There are two designated staging areas, one for day use off Salmon Creek Road and one for camping off Updike Road. All trails are marked and one way except for the upper Deer Creek loops.

The trails are open daily, year-round except during fire season, so call first or check the club website for current conditions. Membership is required which can be purchased online.
