Evans Creek offers plenty of challenge and lots of beautiful scenery, with viewpoints of Mount Rainier that are hard to beat. Due to the fact that the trails in Evans Creek are tight and twisty we would not recommend it for large rigs. Conditions at Evans Creek can vary widely with the weather and season. In winter the park can be closed due to snow and even into late June or early July the upper trails can still be impassible if snowfall was heavy enough. Each season presents it's own set of challenges and we find it a great place to take your rig after a modification to test how things are working.
