Welcome to TCMRA, Your Motorized Recreation Partners In NE Washington State!
Supporting all motorized recreation groups, we are a non-profit corporation established in 2007 to promote motorized recreation on public lands, educate the public about safe and legal OHV use, and partner with land managers to assist in trail maintenance and construction, volunteering as OHV Ambassadors with the Colville National Forest, providing GPS mapping of motorized routes, and representing the motorized community in public lands planning processes. We are not a political organization nor do we support any particular political group or agenda – we merely wish to serve the motorized recreation community by helping keep our roads and trails open for public use in NE Washington! You don’t have to be a member to ride with us, just come have fun socializing and enjoying guided rides in the wonderful mountains of NE Washington.
Trail Rides and Volunteer Activities:
TCMRA has guided trail rides almost every weekend from spring through fall each year, plus we host trail maintenance work days and road patrols for those who can ride during the week or on occasional Sundays. You don’t have to be a member to ride with us – come join us and enjoy the camaraderie! We provide radios for each group ride, with each driver getting a printed map of the route; some of our routes require USFS permits so you’ll be able to ride in areas that OHVs aren’t normally allowed – it’s a privilege that makes riding with our group more fun! And, if you join, you can also participate in giving back to the community by volunteering for our trail maintenance work days or OHV Ambassador program – we ride at least several times a week doing road patrols, public education and outreach, or GPS mapping of motorized routes. We also work with other recreational groups as needed to help with trail maintenance, repair of motorized damages to public lands, and educational outreach.

Types of Trail Rides Offered:
We offer a wide variety of guided club rides, from easy road rides on county roads in the early spring and late fall, to the more challenging Jeep trail rides in the higher elevations in the summer. We rate the rides so you won’t be surprised, as many of our members just want to experience a day in the forest or see some historical or scenic sight, so the Jeep trail rides aren’t the most popular. At the same time, we offer moderately-challenging rides where you can learn how to drive challenging routes with minimal possibility of personal or vehicle damage. We also keep speeds very low – if the trail is challenging, we use the motto of 4WD enthusiasts, in that it’s called “rock crawling” for a reason, and that’s not to go fast in challenging terrain!
USFS Permitted Ride Routes:
TCMRA requests permits each year from the USFS for routes that aren’t normally open to OHVs, offering you the chance to see things in NE Washington that you won’t ordinarily see in your off-road vehicle. None are challenging routes, but offer amazing scenery and family-friendly rides, such as Togo and Marble Mountains near Orient, and Pass Creek Pass east of Sullivan Lake in Pend Oreille County.
