Where to 4x4 in Western Washington...

Alright folks,

I've been a very excited and proud owner of a 2007 Toyota 4Runner SR5 V6 for about 3 months now. The vehicle was previously single owner, spending it's last 100,000 miles and 6 years in Snohomish County. It was absolutely immaculate inside the motor compartment, underneath the vehicle, and fairly clean inside the cabin. I imagine it was a mommy-wagon and never saw off-road time. Maintaince records looked great as well!

Still very much in stock form, it's riding on SR5 16" stock rims with Toyo Open Country A/T tires. I've had the opportunity to take it off roading in Central WA near and around Cle Elum. I've loved every moment of it, and am now ADDICTED!

Here's the primary reason for the post......

Where are some good spots around Western WA, more specifically around Snohomish County (Granite Falls, Monroe, Gold Bar, etc.) I know Mountain Loop Hwp is listed online.... but, can someone help to describe specifically if there's current accessible trails along MLH?

I see that Reiter Pit was once very popular but is now currently shut down. I also read about Monte Cristo off of MLH, however the access road to that ghost town is gated shut as well.

Seems like most places listed or catelogued online are closed, gated, or concrete blocked in.

Is this too much to ask? I'd prefer not to drive out to the Olympics or deep into Central WA.

Thanks for all the help in advance....

Thank you so much! Great information! It's good to come across a local community. Plus, I live in Everett, work in Seattle, so being that the club is located in Lynnwood is a plus!

This thread has been dead for a while, but since I just joined, I thought I'd contribute! I just did a trail today up by Snoquamie Pass that was pretty awesome. I'm still stock so it wasn't anything crazy, but did test my car and got to an amazing view. The ridge at 4721'15.0"N 12124'25.8"W can be accessed if you take exit 62 off I-90 E, and go along NF-5840 and a right at the 4-way intersection of dirt roads after a while. It climbs pretty steadily up and only took about an hour from the time the wheels hit dirt.
