    I used to love that place until they shaved off a huge chunk of it with the new fencing. You used to be able to get in 80 mile loops but now you have to zig zag around to get 30-40 miles in. Not the same imo. To me desert riding needs to be some vast expanse of riding.

    Grew up driving past that place a few times a year and oogling at the trails up the hills....
    Still haven't been there since I started riding. So jealous. Always looks like a blast

    Is Mattawa ride-able through the winter? Does the dirt turn into mud cake when wet?

    The videos are encouraging. Will keep this place on the radar for a possible late Dec ride.

    Mattawa is good to go until it ice's up and get below temp's/windchill factors you're not willing to ride in.
