Naches Trail 1175

  

Travel the rugged Naches Trail, following the route of the pioneer wagons in the mid-1800s over the same mountain range we now cross via Chinook Pass on Highway 410. This trail will give you an idea of the challenges faced by those determined settlers. The Naches Pass is a favorite for its beautiful scenic meadows and mountains. Spot signs of deer or elk if you are lucky.  At Government Meadows find Camp Urich, located south and a few hundred yards on the Pacific Crest 2000 Trail.  Camp Urich is a log cabin complete with a wood stove and outhouse. The cabin’s use is on a first come first served basis, and you may find yourself sharing it. 

The Naches Trail is crosses many roads as you climb through old growth forest and clear cuts:

  • 0.5  miles – FS road #70
  • 0.6 miles – FS road #7065
  • 1.8 miles - Weyerhaeuser Road
