Newly Opened Trail In Winthrop Washington | You’ll Want To See For Yourself

If you’re into mountain biking, we have some exciting news for you from Winthrop Washington! Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance | Methow Chapter has reaped the rewards of a ten-year permitting process to access the national forest around Sun Mountain Lodge for mountain bike trails. 


The pinnacle of the quarter-million-dollar project is the newly opened Thompson Ridge Trail. This is a single-track trail (not dirt road) which is intended to be ridden clockwise in about three to six hours depending on the cyclist. There really isn’t anything like it in the Methow Valley – the views are amazing! 


The best time to use it is right now, before the snow hits. Next year, the trails association will be adding more challenging trails as well as equestrian and hiking trails too.
