From I-90 Thorp Exit 101 to Joe Watt Canyon, Watt Canyon Road, and Hutchins Road: Travel approximately 0.75 mile South from Exit 101 on Thorp Highway to Thorp Cemetery Road and take a right onto it. Thorp Cemetery Road parallels I-90 like a siding road and heads NW. Follow it for approximately 3 miles, and go left onto Watt Canyon Road. Travel past the end of the pavement, across the canal, and up to the elk fence. Use the gate to the right (North), as the one by the barn and facility is locked for administrative use only. Please close the gate behind you.
Joe Watt Canyon is a wonderful primitive camping area conveniently located near interstate I-90 on the dry east side of the Cascades which make it a very popular early season riding destination. The area’s 106,400 acres of riding country crisscrossed with miles upon miles of logging roads and trails don’t hurt either.
