COVID-19 Guidelines

Community safety is our top priority. Please be sure to check WA state and Okanogan county travel restrictions before planning a visit. 

We ask that all trail users Recreate Responsibly and adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Please wear a mask when near others, such as at trailheads and busy intersections. Wear a mask when in warming huts or bathrooms. Under state and county guidelines, "A face covering is not needed when you are outside walking, exercising, or otherwise outdoors as long as you are able to stay 6 feet away from other people who do not live with you." However, at trailheads, busy trails, and trail intersections please be ready to pull mask over your face to keep our trails open and trail users safe.
  • Be prepared with an alternate trailhead in mind if you arrive and find a trailhead is busy.
  • Avoid congregating in groups

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
