Multi-use trail primarily used by motorcycles and mountain bikes.

One of the premier mountain bike trails in the PNW. Ascending options include riding up Mission Creek Rd to Beehive Rd. and then descending Devil's Gulch or just riding up the trail itself. If you're riding up the road, make sure to turn right after about 2.5 miles and continue up Mission Creek and not left up Peavine Canyon. Other riders can shuttle through Wenatchee because vehicle traffic can no longer make it up Mission Creek.

The trail is gentlest at the top then descends a bit sharper through some switchbacks about midway and finally crosses the creeks at the bottom. It's technical in spots but overall it's a solid intermediate/blue square trail.

Devil's Gulch usually opens in late Spring and often has a lot of downed trees, usually cleared by the motos. The creek crossings down low at this time can be high, so take caution. Other nearby options include the figure 8, riding up Devil's Gulch and then down Mission Ridge trail. Red Hill and Red Devil are also worthy additions.

      Excellent ride -definitely one of the best in NW. Shuttle to top of Mission and enjoy 2.5 hours of mostly downhill… being careful not to catch an edge!

      The trail itself is not so difficult or technical. Some rocks, few roots and no especially steep sections. But this isn’t a flow trail in the model of Raging Ridge, where you cut loose and really fly. The trail is narrow, and much of features steep drops off to the side with high consequence for a mistake. It really takes full concentration and control to get down safely. A very dry, loose surface in late August added to the challenge. Id still call it a blue trail, but the length and surface and high consequence make it one of the more difficult blue trails out there.

      One of the most fun times I’ve had on my Mtn Bike. Very technical though and calling this a Blue is an understatement. Amazing views. Scary moments on side of cliffs and a lot of fun water. ???? On a hot summer day it’s the best. Be ready to go from Rock to Dirt to mud to sand. Also took me about 2.5 hours. Long ride.
