Need recommendations for a riding trip with kid

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I’m hoping to get some recommendations for a trip.  I am planning to take my 15 year old somewhere to camp and ride for spring break the first week of April, we live in the Olympia area  would like to take him somewhere that’s ok for a beginner to intermediate rider, he’s on a yz125.  I’m thinking about MOAB but would love to hear your guys’ thoughts.

We frequent tahuya, capital Forrest and Shelton which he handles really well.

thanks,

Our group camp's at Millican Plateau in Oregon. This is our tenth year, great for beginners. Usually dusty but almost never rains or snows.

Millican, East Fort Rock (China hat) and Henderson Flat are all within an hour or so of each other and very beginner friendly. Also close by are Cline, more rocky and technical but still not too difficult and an hour south is 3 Trails which is beginner friendly and more interesting single track wise than the others. So.....Central Oregon, much shorter drive than Moab lol.

East Fort Rock....Camp II if you like it a little quieter...Road 25 or 2510 staging area if you don't mind crowds.....bring your own water in either......

Moab for sure!! I was there early mid April last year for the first time. Lots of easy but amazing rides with mind blowing scenery.  It was 10x my expectations. I’m going again this year in May.
