4x4 Truck Trips Near Seattle

Summer is almost here! It’s time for Seattle truck owners to get out and put their 4x4 capabilities to good use exploring the trails in the Pacific Northwest. It’s a way to see the country not everyone gets to experience. Before you head out, bring your truck into Sunset Truck so we can make sure it’s ready to handle the rough trails.

Elbe Hills

Be prepared for your truck to come home covered in mud. The trails near Elbe are perfect for most 4x4 vehicles with lots of thick muck and slippery puddles to slide and play in. The Busywild trail is probably the roughest area. Big ruts and deep puddles abound. The Mainline Trail hs lots of tight turns and trees. The Gotcha Trail will test your driving skills with lots of tight squeezes, but it’s well worth it for the breathtaking view of Mount Raineer.

Walker Valley

Less than an hour and a half from Seattle, this area has around 10 miles of trail for 4x4 play. Whether you want to take your pickup through dirt roads, tree line trails, or ruts and rocks, there’s something for you in Walker Valley. In the middle of it all is a sandy play area called “the pit” where you can push your truck’s 4x4 capabilities to speed you down a steep cliff to the flat basin below.

Naches Pass Trail

You’ll have to head up to Oregon for this one, but it’s well worth the extra drive. You’ll travel through high country, cross meadows and old-growth forests. All along the way, you’ll experience amazing views of the Cascades. There are loads of challenging tight off-chamber turns, so make sure you’re paying attention even though the trail may feel less challenging than some others.

Enjoy these amazing 4x4 trips in your pickup and when you get back, bring it over to us at Sunset Truck, serving the greater Seattle area, to check it over for any hidden damage.
