Please do not spin your tires in the mud on the forest trails for fun.
Spinning tires for fun is one of the ways the mud holes start and hold water.
After the holes are started then others spin their tires trying to get out of the mud holes and the mud holes grow into mud bogs. Then by-passes area made and the trail gets wider. 4W608 is one of these trails the Forest Service was going to close because of the damage from people driving around the deep mud holes. Volunteers stepped up to stop the closer by doing work parties to fix the holes.

Avoid wheelin when it been raining heavy (example: The Naches Trail didn't get that deep and rough riding from the wagon train).

If you have selectable lockers, once you start spinning, get off the gas and lock up.

Seal up your leaks. It may seem like just a little drip to you but if everyone has a little drip it adds up over time. Every seen what 1 drop of oil looks like in a kiddie pool?

If you see an illegal bypass take the time to toss some stuff in the way.
