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.
