Echo Ridge Summer Trails #1290-1291


Mountain biker at echo ridge

The Echo Ridge Trail System contains over 26 miles of trails intertwined with roads. Originally designed for Nordic skiing and snowshoeing in the wintertime, hiking and mountain biking are popular activities spring through fall on Echo Ridge trails. There are wide, easy trails suitable for all ages, and highly technical single track trails for the more adventurous. You will travel over open ridge tops through a young, emerging forest recovering from a 1968 wildfire. Expect to see great views of Lake Chelan, the Cascades, Okanogan Highlands, and Columbia Plateau. Trail difficulty varies from “easy” trails to “most difficult,” but most trails are suitable for children. These trails are maintained annually. 

See the Echo Ridge Winter Trails page for ski and snowshoe information.

E-Bikes (with full electric motor power or pedal assist) are not allowed on Echo Ridge trails or any forest trail designated non-motorized.
