Diverse Recreation opportunities
The western part of the Yacolt Burn State Forest provides opportunities for diverse recreation activities including horseback riding, off-road vehicle (ORV) riding, mountain biking, hiking and more. Except for ORV riding, Yacolt is open year-round for non-motorized recreation, weather permitting.

To better maintain trails and prevent erosion during the wet, rainy winter and early spring months, DNR closes all roads in the Yacolt Burn State Forest and the popular Jones Creek Trail System to ORVs. Ungated forest roads remain open for non-ORV recreation. The closures allow time for DNR staff and volunteers to safely maintain and repair the trails and other facilities when the area is not being used. 

The motorized trail system reopens May 1 each year.

For more information about the conditions at Yacolt Burn State Forest, visit DNR's Pacific Cascade Region web page.

Interested in volunteering? DNR and partners have periodic weekend work parties at Jones Creek Trailhead. Visit our volunteer calendar for dates and details.
