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 pretty much 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 up to Cayuse Pass or Chinook Pass before they open—but you’ll have to do that early this year, as the Passes open April 3. But after they open, it’s fun to ride bikes up to the White River Campground (halfway up the Sunrise road) before that one opens May 1. And then, after that, ride up the Sunrise Road to the top of Sunrise—a real thigh burner, before that road opens May 1.
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.
