Family Sledding 4×4 Adventure
Hosted by Eastern Washington Adventures
By Clay Graham /

At 10 AM on Saturday December 10th, 2016 we met up at the parking area at the end of the pavement of Cowiche Mill Road for the annual Family Sledding 4×4 run. On this run we had 3 Jeeps (2 JKs and 1 TJ). We aired down and headed on up the gravel of Cowiche Mill Road into the Ahtanum State Forest. We turned up C-1000 and made our way up onto Cowiche Ridge following the tracks of it look to be three other rigs. We were able to break trail in a few places which was very fun.

High up on Cowiche Ridge the views where great! You could see the Yakima River Canyon across the valleys. It was land marked by Baldy Mountain and the end of the canyon in Selah.

My JK’s charging system was having some issues so I had to turn back early before the battery died. Lucky most of the back roads home had snow on them since I had no battery power to air back up from 5 PSI. 🙂

This was a very nice day up in the mountains and a lot of fun thanks to those who came.

Note: The Ahtanum State Forest is managed by the Department of Natural Resources. A Discover Pass is required and you must follow the Green Dot Roads with wheeled vehicles. All snow groomed roads are closed to wheeled vehicles.
