OHV Riding & Camping
Choose from the following to find a site:
The Gifford Pinchot National Forest Motor Vehicle Use Map shows the roads, trails, and areas where you can legally drive your wheeled motor vehicles. These roads, trails and areas are designated by type of motor vehicle allowed and the allowable season of use.
Review a list of designated OHV trails and make sure to check the allowable uses for each trail. Not all trails are open to ATV use.
E-bikes (electric assisted bikes): E-bikes have motors and as such, are only allowed on motorized trails and roads.
License and equipment needed:
Motorized users (motorcycles and ATVs) need to meet the requirements of Washington State Law and Forest Service regulations. State law requires current ORV stickers (issued by the Department of Motorized Vehicles). Forest Service regulations require approved spark arresters. Motorized users must stay on designated trails.
You must be "highway legal" to ride the roads.
Motorcyclists using Forest Service roads must have a current state license and operator's license, wear a helmet and the motorcycle must have a headlight, taillight, brake light, horn, 2 mirrors and turn signals. Note: Street legal ATV's/UTVs (aka WATVs) are not permitted to operate on roads on the Gifford Pinchot national Forest at this time.
