Snow in Evan's or Elbe Hills?

Recommended Posts

Anyone know how much snow either or both of these places have right now. Trying to figure where our group is riding this weekend (Sunday).

Thanks

Shane

Is Elbe hills worth riding? I get the impression it's mostly for 4x4's and such. I've never really heard anything about the place in the local dirt biking community, but I live really close to it(Rainier).

I like it, but would say for you to take a day and see if you like it for yourself. It is mostly 4x4 trails, but they are extreamly tight in places. Makes for some nice fast riding and helps with learning turns with speed through the woods. There are always a bunch of bikes and Quads there, but you are right, you don't hear much about it.

Would the terrain be acceptable for my 9-yr old son(beginner) and his JR80? Sorry for hijacking your post. I wish I could answer your question, but I don't think there could be any snow at Elbe hills. It's got to be really low elevation based on where it's at. :)

As far as Elbe: I haven't ridden my bike there yet, but. I have been jeeping there for years. You should expect lots of water and mud, so dress accordingly. I know there will be a bunch of jeeps up there this weekend, because my jeep club will be there. The jeep trails are defiantly fun for jeeping. It is a short wheel base kind of area

Evans Creek: I have been jeeping there your years as well. Not as tight of trails, and more fun in my opinion. I did ride my old 2 smoke there 16 years ago, but could not tell you about now or with a 4-stroke. "Usually" Evans has snow until May or June, but this year hard telling.

Both places you need to watch out for Johnny Law. They WILL ticket you in a heartbeat. If it says it has to be street legal, you better walk it. Just my $.02. A buddy of mine got a ticket riding a quad across the gravel road, because we didn't want the teenager to get in trouble. I also believe you will need a parking permit/forest permit at Evans.
