Canyons Off Road Park

North of Fredericksburg, in Texas hill country, is Canyons Off-Road Park.

They do this by having easy trails link up with all the hard trails. Keep an eye on the events because Gulches ORV ParkContinue Reading

Naches Pass

Naches Pass was originally a Native American foot trail connecting the various Salish people on the west side (Nisqually & Puyallup) to the Yakima people on the east side of the Cascade Range. In later years, Naches Pass was worked on to be used as a wagon trail short cut from the Oregon Trail. The trail never found practical use because the steep terrain is nearly impractical for wagons and it would required over 60 crossing of the Naches River before reaching the pass from the east. One of the earliest written accounts of the Naches Pass is from TheodoreContinue Reading
