    Noticed on the way home today that it looks like there is a fresh blanket of snow up there. I have never been bothered up there but also know that the local kids like to offroad and make a mess of things at times.

    I havent been up there for years. Last I knew, it was closed off due to rubbish dumping. Great area, is it open now?

    Is there a different way to get to the rock quarry on Larch Mountain?

    That road up the hill is vicious with the bumps and stuff. My truck can handle it just fine, it's just obnoxious.

    The bumpy roads are good. Keeps the casual user away! ;)

    If it was more offroad ish, I would agree.

    That road just vibrates my head to pieces. :bluelaugh:

    i spoke to law enforcement a couple of weeks ago- larch mountain in clark county is open everyday from the rock pit up. During the winter sometimes they close the road above that takes the skyline to washougal
