Explore on a Bike
Grab a bike and explore. We have rental mountain bikes here, or feel free to bring your own mountain bike or road bike. Many “Best of Washington” trails are right in this area, and and there are also miles and miles of Forest Service roads to explore!
The mountain bike trails have melted out early this year, and all the lower elevation trails area already accessible. 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. One of our favorite things to do is ride from the White River Campground to Sunrise before the road opens to cars. It’s a real thigh burner—2000 feet in 10 miles—but the views and solitude are well worth it. When we did it in May 2015, we actually say a Mama bear and 2 cubs. Very exciting. Of course, you can still ride it after the Sunrise road opens June 5, but we just like having it to ourselves:)
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.
