One will never run out of hiking options in the Methow Valley.  With trails that take you  from the valley floor to the mountain tops,  from the national forests to state wildlife lands to the North Cascades National Park there is scenery here that cannot be matched!  


“The majority of the Methow’s 120 miles of winter ski trails become biking, hiking, running and horse-riding trails in the summer months. Later in the summer, don’t miss some of the best day hikes in the country, such as Blue Lake or Harts Pass.  Maple Pass is a fall classic.”

~ Jay Lucas
