Tahuya State Forest is a 23,000-acre “working forest” (logging) that is used for ORV riding, horseback riding, mountain biking, fishing, hunting, camping, etc. But it is mostly an ORV destination. The vast majority of the trails are ATV trails, with very narrow bridges with high steel sides that are 48” wide. Only about 15 miles of Tahuya’s trails are passable by vehicles wider than 48”. But those 15 miles include some pretty fun stuff, so it can still be worth the trip.

There is a new 4×4 loop with difficult rock challenges. Tahuya is a place to experience some slow, relaxing recreation, with a few areas to stop and play around with optional challenges. If you seek wide open spaces, high speed trails, and large areas to explore, this is not the best place for that.
