Get some big climbing days in before attempting. And bring a water filter!
This route entails the Nason Ridge Trail in its entirety. The least ridden portion is the Western portion of Nason Ridge that begins somewhat as a partial shuttle thanks to NF 6705 road at the Snowy Creek Trailhead.
The beginning of this route is a real doozy, but switches back through some of the most beautiful terrain on the entire route. Once the ridge is gained, you'll have the biggest climb out of the way.
Trail traverses Eastward towards Lake Wenatchee State Park & Kahler Glen Golf Course. This route makes for a good all day ride, leaving time for views, stops at the various lakes and certainly for the sake of ones legs.
This IS one of Washington's Epic's. It's a must-do trail!
