The steep trail gaining the divide between Hay and Nahahum Canyons provides a unique way to get out in the foothills, in a beautiful setting that feels surprisingly remote.

Devils Gulch Alternatives

Devils Gulch is Central Washington's best-known mountain bike ride.  Less known is that from the upper trailhead of this famed ride, there are a half dozen other trails for hikers, trail runners, and mountain bikers to enjoy. Summer is a good time to ride these high trails.

Twin Peaks - 11 Must-Do Rides

Twin Peaks (aka Horse Lake Mountain) is the backyard peak of the Lower Wenatchee Valley. The peak feels a world away (rather than a few miles removed) from the Wenatchee Valley. The flowers are beginning to  burn off in the lower hills around town but they are still spectacular up on Twin Peaks.

Devils Gulch Trail

This ride features buff trails, ponderosa pine forests, creek crossings, and steep sided canyons. The fires of 2012 had the trail closed earlier this spring, but the trail is open now and in good shape. Here are the details (and maps) of one the premier rides in the state.

Mission Ridge Trail

This scenic trail parallels the Devils Gulch Trail but remains high on an undulating ridge system. The fires of 2012 torched some of the surrounding forests, but most of the area benefited from the fire and it's fascinating to see how the fire behaved here. The trail is clear of fallen logs now so ride it, hike it, or run it.

Playboating Cashmere

The play holes and rapids upstream of Cashmere are among the most popular on the Wenatchee River. Not only are many of the play spots excellent, they are convenient for boaters living in the Lower Valley who are looking for post-work excitement. Enjoy them now, before the Wenatchee fades away for summer.

Saw two cougars on the Devils Gulch trail yesterday on a Mtn Bike ride.They were laying in the trail about a half mile below the intersection of the Mission Creek Trail and Mission Ridge Trail. We got a good look at them. Pretty big cats! Keep your eyes open if you are up there.
