A 1,000-foot hill located at 16646 Hwy 241 (between Yakima and Hanford, north of Sunnyside) will be the site that the riders will test their rides, skills, and nerves to reach the top! This hill is a monster, an obstacle so great, we’ve used it for the past 13 years! If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it! The (now-renamed) Dry Creek ORV Park is going to roar with excitement!

“This is hillclimbing at its best! Come watch the national and world champions tackle the demanding hill in under 20 seconds.”
– John Nyboer, Nitro Nationals Spokesman
