      The Entiat Ranger District is a tapered slice of the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest, located in the more arid eastern edge of the Cascade Mountains. It extends from the Chelan Mountains in the northeast to the Entiat Mountains in the west. The Entiat River Valley splits the Entiat Mountains from the Chelan Mountains, with the Columbia River flowing to the south and the Glacier Peak Wilderness Area standing majestically to the north. The landscape is dominated by wildfire ecology. Many areas of the Entiat Ranger District are excellent to observe examples of forest restoration, after large wildfires have occurred. Elevations range between 800 to more than 9,000 feet. The total acreage is 272,101 acres, which includes the Glacier Peak Wilderness Area at 25,557 acres.

      High-quality recreation of all types exists in the Entiat Ranger District. The broad range of campgrounds and hiking trails provide access into relatively undeveloped zones of the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest that are excellent for hiking and fishing in solitude. Deep in the Glacier Peak Wilderness Area, at the end of the Entiat River Trail you can observe the last remaining remnants of the once massive Entiat Glacier. The glacier still clings to the impressive Entiat headwall, home to three 9,000’ peaks: Mt. Maude, Seven Finger Jack and Mt. Fernow. The Entiat Ranger District is also home to one of the nation’s most extensive multiple-use trail systems. This beloved trail system parallels lush alpine meadows, passes with pristine mountain lakes and climbs to lofty summits with breathtaking views of the wild North Cascade Range. Much of this trail system can be traveled by off-road motorcycles, mountain bikes, horses or hiking.
