      ** ALL trails in the Number Two Canyon area are closed from December 1st to April 15th. **

      The Wenatchee River Ranger District of the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest will implement its seasonal road and area closure for the Number Two Canyon area. The goal of this closure is to manage deer winter range to sustain healthy populations of mule deer and elk.

      The seasonal closure within the Number Two Canyon Project Area is for all recreational use from December 1 to April 15 annually, including cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, and mountain biking to avoid distress to animals during this critical period.

      There are two exceptions to this closure: Forest Service Road 7101 will remain open to snowmobiles and non-motorized recreational use on the road prism from Number Two Canyon over to Mission Creek during the closure period, and FS Road 7101-500 (the road to the top of Twin Peaks) will be open to non-motorized recreational use from December 1 to January 31 annually as this is the period of deepest snow depth and deer migrate to lower elevations during this period.

      This closure period may be extended prior to December 1 or later than April 15 annually in consultation with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, if wintering deer are still present, or if roads are still wet and could be damaged by vehicle use.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
      eBikes Allowed: No
      Land Status: National Forest
      Parking Most of the time need high clearance truck to get here. google parking directions
      Access Info:
      Access: Start from Wenatchee or Number Two Canyon Road (above Wenatchee). If starting from Wenatchee, follow Western Avenue south until it hooks sharply to the right to become Number Two Canyon Road, and ride the road. If driving to reduce the outing time, drive 4.25 miles up Number Two Canyon Road and park at pavement’s end in a pullout on the south side of the road (the small parking area on the north side of the road is private and is not to be used). You can also drive another 0.7 miles past the end of pavement and park at the second gate where the dirt road you’ve been following (FS Road 7101) makes a sharp hook to the left. The condition of the dirt road changes each year depending on how badly it has been rutted by mudders -- sometimes high-clearance vehicles will be needed, sometimes not. No permits are needed to park at either of these parking areas.
