BBQ Flats

Saturday, December 23, 2023

Other Names

Barbecue Flats, Wenas Creek

Last Known StatusOpen

BBQ Flats features miles of old logging roads to explore that wind through open meadows and a mixed pine, fir and spruce tree forest. Most of the trails hard packed with loose chunk rock with light to moderate elevation changes. There are several campgrounds but dispersed camping is permitted throughout the forest.

The area is popular with horseback riders and hikers and there are miles of designated non-motorized trails, but offroad vehicles are permitted on designated green dot roads. The area is also seasonal, and motorized use and camping is prohibited from December 8 through May 1.

Visitors should note that a Discover Pass is required to camp and ride which must be obtained prior to entry. For current conditions contact the Washington DNR - Southeast Region Office before heading out.
