Washington Sawtooths (Foggy Dew-Horsehead-Cub Lake) in October.

Recommended Posts

Had a sidewall puncture in the first mile and thought my day was done. One of the guys I was riding with is from the area. Gave up his ride so that I could enjoy the day. Thanks Rod!

It's kind of a combination in and back with a loop option. The main trail is an in and back but on the way back to the trailhead, you can turn off about halfway back and head south to make the last part a loop. Looking at the first map, we rode on the road from Foggy Dew Campground to Crater Creek Trailhead to Cub Lake and then to make a bit of a loop you can turn south on Martin Creek and then around to Foggy Dew Creek and back to Foggy Dew Campground.

Next time I hope to begin earlier in the day and ride from Boiling Lake south and ride the Uno Peak loop. Evidently there are some good climbs in there etc.

Here are some maps:

If you're plated you can ride from Chelan to Gold Creek by going over the top... It's all gravel USFS roads. Part of the WABDR route... good views also.

You can come up from the Chelan side too, there is a trailhead at South Navarre I believe.

Theres a few ways up from the Chelan/Manson side, you can go up by Echo Valley, out at Manson. We used to ride over to Manson for lunch from the Methow (Squaw Creek) where I used to live. You can also head up Antoine Creek and hit all those roads. Most every creek road up the Methos, has a way into the USFS road system, pretty much the same from Chelan/Manson, just not as many.

oh man awesome shots! I wish I could have come

They are, I grew up there, riding all those old logging roads, sheep trails, and FS roads, I need to try and get up there before snow with a digital camera.

I know there are roads all over, I was thinking about trails. I lived in Winthrop for a while and worked for the FS so I've crawled all over that country in a truck for work.

Most are that we ride, old sheep drive trails, the occasional logging road with the FS roads also.
