On Saturday August 9th, 2008, Eastern Washington Off Road & All Wheelers Off Road Club members met up on FS590 for the Shoestring 4×4 Run. We took FS590 up and onto 4W617 (Lily Pond).

Scuba had turn around due to a fuel leak right before the bridge. The bridge was real slick from the mud hole at the beginning of it. Right after the bridge there was a good hill climb. On top there was another good climb.

At Lily Pond we turned up 4W676 (Kaner). A ways up 4W676 we stopped for a break.

Up at the top of 4W676, we made a wrong turn since most of the trail marks are missing. We found 4W306 (Manastash Ridge) and was back on track. Near 4W308 (Shoestring), Soggy Mountain had his cross member come loose. It was a quick fix and we were going again.

We turning off 4W306 onto 4W309 (String). Waycrazy made another wrong turn so I went on to the intersection of 4W309 (String) at 4W308 (Shoestring) to wait for them to turn around.

We turn right on 4W308 (Shoestring) and run the trail to Region 4 Meadows where we took a break.

We turning off 4W308 (Shoestring) onto 4W307 (Tripod) and ran it back to the top of Manastash Ridge. We turn off 4W307 (Tripod) onto 4W694 and then down 4W686 (including Wood Pecker). On Milk Creek Road we turned up FS590 to get back to the base camp.

A few of us camped but most headed home.

This was a great trip thanks to all that came.

“Wild Winger!” Naches Pass 4×4 Run

Report and photos by Clay Graham / Eastern Washington Off Road

On Saturday July 19th, 2008, everyone met up at Lost Meadow off FS1906 for the annual summer Naches Pass 4×4 Run we call the “Wild Winger”.  Around 10:30 AM we hit the Naches Pass Trail (4W684) with three XJs, Two Toyota Trucks and a FJ40.

88sr5rollin1986 had a steering wheel problem before we got to FS1913. With the help of a few other, he got the steering wheel back on where it worked. At FS1913 88sr5rollin1986 took his rig back to camp because of the steering wheel problem. 88sr5rollin1986 and his Co-pilot got a ride in Scuba’s rig to see the rest of the trail.

We headed on crossing the trail bridges. “99” was afraid she was going to drive off them with her Tweety Jeep.

We stopped at the top of a hill climb so “Ron the Parts Guy” FJ40 could cool down. This is when 89 yota’s rig wouldn’t start. Oh what a feeling! Test Dummy helped 89 yota get his rig started and we were on our way.
We stopped at the top of the Naches Pass to get some pictures and then stopped for lunch at the Pacific crest trail crossing.

After lunch we headed on west down the Naches Pass Trail. At FS70, we took a break to hike down to see Naches Cliff, where the Pioneers had winch down their wagons.

Heading back over by NF70 to Pyramid Pass “Ron the Parts Guy” stopped to call his wife.

On FS1914 we jumped back on Naches Pass Trail to ran it back East. We went back to camp and ate dinner.

After dinner we took Scuba’s and my 99 XJ up Kaner (4W676) from the bottom. We ran it until we found a big mud hole Scuba could not make it through with both lockers on. Scuba finely gave up trying after I told him I wasn’t driving in that.

The next day Scuba headed home and we drove up to Ravens Roost. Up on top at Ravens Roost was a very nice view of Mt Rainier.

The Toyotas headed out for home. We head on down and decided to run Power Line. The part of Power Line we ran wasn’t bad. It beats running the road.

This was a very fun weekend thanks to all that came.

On Saturday, August 11th, 2007, we met up the All Wheelers Off Road Club camp on FS1708-590. After Waycrazy fixed his CJ5 we headed out to FS1708 (Milk Creek) and then on up. FS1708 turned into 4W686 right around the corner from where we turned onto FS1708 because the land slides. We turn on FS589 to 4W685. 4W685 took us back onto 4W686. Near the end of 4W686 there we had a few routes we could take. All of them were steep, loose, and dusty. At the top we turned onto 4W694 and ran it to Funny Rocks. A few of the guys played on them.

After a little time there we back tracked 4W694 and ran it to 4W307 (Tripod Flat). We next turned on 4W308 (Shoestring). We stopped for lunch at Region 4 Meadows.

After a short time we were on our way. We crossed some small bridges and drove on tank tracks on the trail. We crossed a longer bridge and then came up to a Y in the trail. The trail to the right was 4W309 (String). At this intersection Scuba had to stop to fix his tie rod. As Scuba was fixing his XJ the Timber Tamers came by us on 4W309. After they past a CJ came up from behind us. There was two real nice guys named John and Dave Hopper. They knew us from the web site and decided to come a long with us.

We moved on up 4W308 (Shoestring) but didn’t get very far when Waycrazy broke his steering. After Waycrazy got his CJ drivable we get around the corner and Scuba’s front tire goes flat. Printthis came back down and aired Scuba’s tires up. Then we were on our way. At the top of the climb we turned onto 4W306 (Manastash Ridge) and ran it north a short distance then turned off onto 4W676 (Kaner Flat). We ran 4W676 (Kaner Flat) down and turn onto 4W617 (Lilly Pond). At the end of 4W617 was at FS1708-590. Our camp was just down the hill from there.

Thanks Waycrazy for wanting to have this run. Thanks to everyone that came and made it a fun run.

UPDATE: The west end of the 4×4 trail has been blocked off from FS7065 to FS70.

On Saturday July 21st, 2007 we left our camp on the east side around 10 AM with 12 rigs and hit the Naches Pass Trail. Five of the rigs were from the All Wheelers Off Road Club. We stopped to let some dirt bikes pass in the open area after the trail dropped back into the valley. On up the trail around the bridges, we ran into some more traffic. Some where before the long bridge Waycrazy’s CJ5 had a problem. We waited for him and the others at FS1914. Once they got to FS1914, Waycrazy and Fatboy took Waycrazy’s CJ5 back to camp. We headed on up the trail.

We pass more quads and bikes as we climbed. A few rigs here and there. Three guys from PNWJeep.com passed us. I finely got to meet John90XJ.

We stopped at the Pacific Crest Trail. Most walked the trail to the cabin at Government Meadows and ate lunch. Fatboy caught back up with us and had Waycrazy as his co-pilot. (I wonder who out talked who?) The two Samis had to leave. That left nothing but Jeeps so we had to point that out to PullUout since he likes to talk **** about all Jeeps. Long walk?

We moved on down the trail on the west side. We were moving a lot faster than before and making up some time so we could do the trail backwards. Then we ran into a traffic Jam. There were 12 FJ Cruisers not moving very fast and sometimes not at all. They said they had to move logs off the trail. I am guessing they were to big to fit since there were a lot of Jeeps that already had climbed up that way earlier. Right before the steep west side sections, we were stopped and had a long wait for the FJ Cruiser group to go again. Finely the 12 FJ Cruisers turned off before the end of the trail. We had a lot of fun coming down the last part.

We lined up on FS70 for a break and for people hike down to the Naches Cliff. While we were there, OilSlick climbed back up the last part and tried the tight part. KarlVP drove up the drop off. I missed the front tire off the ground photo. Test Dummy followed KarlVP up the drop off. OilSlick had a tough time making the tight turn. He lost his driver side mirror on a tree. After they were done with the hill climbs we ran Pyramid Pass back over to camp. Some of the guys had to go home. The rest of us had a great visit around the campfire.

On Sunday most headed home leaving only two XJs. Test Dummy and I took the family exploring. We headed back to SR410, then up FS1708 (Milk Creek Road) looking at places. We stopped to where they made the road into a trail since the road sank.

Next we headed back down FS1708 to SR410. We ran SR410 back onto FS19 and then headed up FS1901 checking places where the 4W676 (Kaner Flat Trail) crossed Forest Service Roads. We heard many horror stories about this trail. We ran a few small section of 4W676 up the ridge to see how bad the trail was. The mud holes were dry but some were so deep, the ground level was above our hoods. A lot of deep holes at the end of bridges and deeper than what the bridge was put there for. We must have drove around the bad section on the FS1901 & FS1915 but made it as far as Lily Pond. After a short break we ran 4W676 down a little. We ran 4W676 down hill for aways and then jump on FS1901 than out FS1903 to FS19 and back to camp to pack for home.

I want to thank all of you that came out on this run. It was a fun run with a lot of nice people.
