COVID-19 Travel Restrictions in Effect

All of us here at Methow Trails are eager to welcome visitors to the valley once it is safe to do so. We are monitoring travel restrictions and best practice recommendations from the state. Currently, the Methow Valley is under Phase 2 guidelines of Washington State's Safe Start Plan. This means that travel outside your community is limited to essential travel only. This is an especially important guideline for small communities like the Methow Valley, which has limited resources and an older population. 

Now is not the time to visit the Methow Valley. 

We appreciate your support of our community during this time, and we cannot wait to welcome you back when it is safe to do so!

Winter Trails
Every month of the year has something special to offer in the Methow, but our favorite season is winter! Explore over 120 miles (200+ km) of scenic, quiet, and freshly groomed trails in the largest cross-country ski area in North America. Our team of groomers are committed to providing world-class conditions all season long, and kids 17 and under and seniors 75+ ski free all day, every day. Try classic or skate skiing, fat biking, snowshoeing, or enjoy a long ski with your favorite four-legged companion on one of our dog trails. Kids will love our StorySki trails, and everyone enjoys a stop at one of our trailside warming huts. 

Spring, Summer, and Fall Trails
When the snow melts, it's time to put the skis away and dust off the mountain bikes and hiking boots! Trail running, hiking, mountain biking, road biking, horseback riding, birding, fishing... whatever your passion, you'll be hard-pressed to find a more beautiful place to do it than the Methow. 

Getting Here
Hey, if it were easy to get to the Methow, it wouldn't be the Methow. Enjoy the journey and we'll see you when you get here.

Lodging and Dining
At the end of a long day of exploring and playing, you'll be ready for a tasty meal and a soft bed.
