4WD and ATV Trails

4WD and ATV trails are designed and maintained for short wheel-based 4WD vehicles (such as Jeeps). Difficulty levels change according to and are dependent on operator skill level, type of vehicle, trail conditions and weather. It is very important that the user obtains and carries a Cle Elum Ranger District ORV map when venturing on these trails. Please contact the Cle Elum Ranger District if you have any questions about ORV trails, regulations and information on specific trails.

In addition to the district's ATV trail (ATV 30), ATV's are allowed on all 4x4 trails. It is not legal to operate ATV's on Forest Service roads. Motorized cross-country travel off roads and trails is prohibited.
