Looking for a cheap date to show me around Matawa(sp) I'm flexable on the day. Hell, I might even make it a weekday if no one takes me up on this. Then I could drag Jason out there.

*i've started this thread like 5x and deleted it every time. I'm ready to commit!!

**Really the only thing that would stop me is snow on the pass, truck won't make it.

***didn't you guys used to do a breakfast thingy?

Its about an hour from me, and I have never done any off road there, but would like to. I need to get a jetting issue figured out on my bike, but would definitely be interested in going. I'd say we could get lost, but I do have GPS mounted on the WR, so we should be able find our way back to the trucks. LOL. I will ask some of my buddies about places to ride there and see what info I can come up with.

*Ok, really, I don't know either. Twisty mentioned it to me. I just know it is wayyyy south of me. (most of the places I like to ride are getting snow now...so need to find other places).

**I'm up for something closer to you guys....it's all up-in-the-air.

It is just south of Vantage, about 10 miles south of I-90 on 243. Very sandy area, never been off road there. Here's a link to a map for those that are Google challenged, LOL.

I honestly have no idea where any designated riding areas are, but will do some research to see what I can find.

On another note, a friend and I are taking a group of kids to another off road park called Toes MX Park. http://www.toesmxp.com/ They have a few different areas to ride, and it is pretty laid back.

How come all the vids and pics I seen, seem to be all from the same area? Are there actual trails through out, or just kind of play area?

*$10 says I bite it hard, crash at least 3x and can't make it up a least 1 of those hills.

No there is not, there use to be a spot at cresent bar that people use to ride on but it was private property and they kicked everyone out. The closest spot we got for a orv park is mosses lake. We use to ride there alot when i had my cr 250 and before i got to fat ! Also we use to go to horn rapids out by kirkland (Awsome), and went to beverly dune, yes that is singular, was not impresed with that for a motocross spot. We here in wenatchee are stuck to the hills, and great hills they are ! There still may be some private land to ride on, i just dont know were.

Looks like a lot of riding around Lake Wenatchee and South of Cashmere. I would assume that there is also snow? I rode through both of those places on my way to Moses, but didn't hit any trails. Sad
*also some trails are seasonally closed as of Oct.

Hell ya, this hole valley is conected by roads and trails, you can go from lake wenatchee and get to entiat, levenworth, cashmere, wenatchee, and cross a highway, and ther is elensberg and cle elem, wich i dont know much about. Both roads and trails, lots i am tring to get familure with, being out of the game for so long. from entiat you can also get to lake chelan by trails and roads also. It is endless here if you start studing the maps.
