Area to learn/teach around Duvall, Wa?

Hello,
I have two young girls that are starting to show interest in learning how to ride dirt bikes, this obviously makes me very happy:).

I have a friend that has a little 70cc that will be great to learn on and even has some gear to loan, but I can't find a good place to go. I'd love it to be a big open grassy field so if/when they fall it's not as bad as some fire road.

I live in Duvall so anywhere around there would be great, any ideas?


Thanks,
james

I am in the same boat in Snohomish. I would think you gotta have something east of you though? That is one big mountain. I guess Reiter pit if nothing else?

Yea Reiter or any other fireroads around here might work, I'm was hoping to find something a little softer to fall on;). If I find anything I'll let you know.

Have you thought about signing them for a class?
Family teaching family can sometimes end in poor results.

Yea I have and I agree. What I'm hoping is just an afternoon of first impressions to see if its worth the $100's classes will cost. I have a friend that has his kid in these classes and like them. So I figure if they like it enough to ask for more, then I'd pay, but if they say, no way, to scary, where are my dolls..:).

In the valley

You wont find anywhere but private property to ride in Duvall. Best bet might be driving around in the valley and asking some farmers for permission/trade to ride on their land. More than a few have tracks of their own.
