Trails

This section of our blog is for riders who want to check the condition of their trail of choice before they head out from home, or make a comment to share with others about a trail you've recently used.

IMPORTANT FIRE NOTICE:
 Click here for ongoing updates on the Diamond Creek fire and trail closures in the Pasayten Wilderness as well as other fires in Washington State.

PLEASE CLICK HERE FOR THE MOST RECENT FORESTRY UPDATES ON SPECIFIC TRAILS IN THE REGION. 

IF YOU HAVE BEEN ON ANY OF THE OPEN TRAILS IN THE METHOW VALLEY AND DISCOVERED DOWNED TREES OR OTHER TRAIL OBSTRUCTIONS THAT MAKE THE TRAIL IMPASSABLE, PLEASE REPORT THE TRAIL AND LOCATION OF OBSTRUCTION TO THE FOREST SERVICE at (509) 996-4003.


Please feel free to make a note below, especially if there are new trail conditions that require repair or are impassable to equestrians and stock (include the date of your observation!). There also may be comments related to dates and locations of anticipated trail or bridge repairs. ALWAYS SCROLL DOWN TO CHECK THESE COMMENTS AND NOTICES FOR RECENT ACTIVITY!

The State Wide Work Party (SWWP) of the Back Country Horsemen of Washington (BCHW) did an extensive amount of trail work in the Twisp River drainage in 2016. A "Final Report" was submitted to the Forest Service in late August which explains the work done (so far) by BCHW and the local Methow Valley chapter. Click here to read the report.
