This off-road area offers miles of technical trails that range from tight woods single track for dirt bikes to rugged 4x4 roads for trucks and ATVs. Most of the terrain is geared for the experienced rider due to the numerous tree roots, rocks, ruts and deep mud puddles, especially after a good rain.

Walker Valley has around 36 miles of ATV trails, 10 miles of 4x4 trails a rock play pit and separate 4x4 obstacle course. The main staging area has a loading ramp and two vault toilets. A Washington State Discover Pass is required which can be purchased at nearby vendors or online.

The trails are open year-round but may close on short notice due to fire season or inclement weather. There is no running water except for the nearby creek so bring your own supplies.

Primitive camping is permitted at the staging area but large trailers are not recommended since space is limited.

RIDER COMMENTS & REVIEWS

Walker Valley Trail Photo

Walker Valley ORV Area Trail

No shortage of mud puddles here. ATVs and Jeeps will have a blast after a light rain.

A close up photo of a muddy 4x4 trail with rocks, roots and tree logs.

Most of the ATV trails look like this and are geared for the intermediate to advanced rider.

This area has about 10 miles set aside for 4x4s and Jeeps.

The ATV and dirt bike trails rarely dry out at Walker Valley. Throw in some rain soaked branches and logs and the difficulty goes up another notch.

The area has lots of mud puddles to play in and twisty single track motorcycle trails to explore.

When you get to clearings like this, the views are fantastic. Bring the camera.

This trail system has some gnarly sections for trucks and jeeps.
