WTA Pro Tip: Save a copy of our directions before you leave! App-based driving directions aren't always accurate and data connections may be unreliable as you drive to the trailhead.

Getting There

From Twisp, take the Twisp River Road (west on 2nd Ave) for 6.8 miles, where it then becomes USFS Rd 44. Follow USFS RD 44 for 17.7 miles, where the trailhead is up the access road on the right.
