Grab a mountain bike and explore. We have rental bikes here, or feel free to bring your own. Many “Best of Washington” trails are right in this area, and and there are also miles and miles of Forest Service roads to explore!
In the spring, you’re most likely going to stick to lower elevation trails until the snow melts out—and the Skookum Flats trail is a personal favorite for more advanced riders. Beginners and intermediates will love the trails behind the Buck Creek air strip (just a couple of miles away) and we also love to explore the old Forest Service cabins by riding miles of gravel roads.
There are also great places for road bikes too. How about a nice ride down to Greenwater (12 miles each way) for ice cream at Wapiti Woolies; a sandwich from Greenwater Outfitters Deli or a burger and beer at the Naches Bar & Grill. After the snow melts, many bikers love to ride up to Sunrise or Chinook Pass. These rides are real thigh burners but the views (and the bragging rights) are worth it!
