This isn't real close, but there are some nice Forest Service or old logging roads and jeep roads and such up above Lake Cushman past Hoodsport.

Old Tacoma Airport?

First, didn't know it used to be an airport. Cool!

Second, where did you enter? I've been a little worried about riding back there since it looks like private property and I didn't want to get caught or something (it's a little difficult to hide a GS bike =)

Third, where did/do you enter that area? I'm totally game to go out there some weekend if anyone's interested (with a smaller bike, though =)

resurrecting this. Did you ever find more good places to go around here? I'm going down to capitol forest today, but for the future I'm particularly interested in the old airport there. I'm gonna scout that out tomorrow.
