Club Profile:

We are an off-road motorcycle and ATV club which rides at the Jones Creek ORV Area. The Jones Creek ORV Area is located within the Yacolt Burn State Forest, north of the city of Camas, WA and adjacent to the Camas watershed. The Jones Creek ORV Area includes a recently improved trailhead and a honeycomb of trails, including a sanctioned, 12 mile, one-way, ORV loop trail. The sanctioned trail system varies in elevation and physical setting characteristics. Most sections are heavily forested and very rocky. However, there are approximately six bridges crossing various streams and water bodies.

The Yacolt Burn State Forest is located in near the growing urban centers of Vancouver, WA and Portland, OR. The Yacolt Burn is primarily school and county trust land managed by the Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR). Its trees are mostly 50 to 70 years old with some scattered old growth. There are a number of motorized and non-motorized trail systems within the Yacolt Burn. If you would like a map or additional information about the Yacolt Burn State Forest, contact the Southwest Region of the DNR at 1-800-527-3305.

The JCTRA is a relatively small club (less than 150 members) who have joined together to preserve the Jones Creek area for future generations of off-road enthusiasts. For more on this and for a wealth of additional information, please read the following letter written by our co-founder, Bill Buckman.
