July Ahtanum Quad Run
Hosted by All Wheelers Off Road Club
Report and Photos by Clay Graham / Eastern Washington Off Road
On Saturday July 2nd, 2005, the All Wheelers Off Road Club members did a family ATV run at the Ahtanum. We off loaded the quads at the Ahtanum Sno-park. Then made our way around the Darland Mountain Loop and back.
Once back at the Ahtanum Sno-park I found my trailer tire was about to blow. We changed it and headed back the Ceg Ranch for the night.
On Sunday we did a 4W613 quad run from Snow Cabin Campground and headed toward Jumpoff Lookout with a lot of sightseeing along the way. The views off Divide Ridge of Rimrock and the Yakima Valley were great!
Just passed Louie Way Gap the trail became very off camber. We stopped to see if it got any better ahead. We walked just around the bend and heard a crash. My Step Father, Richard’s Quad fell off the trail. Well that is when we decided to turn around. First we had to get Richard’s quad back on the trail. We use my quad to winch it up and headed back the way we came.
This was a great weekend of fun.
