This trail offers access to the Mad Lake and Blue Creek areas, including four lakes and many high elevation meadows. The seasonal closure usually ends around mid-July, depending upon trail conditions. The area one-quarter mile on each side of the trail is closed to off trail travel by motorbikes and mountain bike.

The upper Mad River Trail begins at Maverick Saddle and ends at the junction of Trail #1429 and Trail #1408. The upper Mad River has a seasonal closure in place. This trail is closed to stock, mountain bikes and motorcycles until posted. The trail will be posted open when the snow melts and the trail dries. This date varies from year to year. Contact the Entiat Ranger Station for the latest conditions at 509 784-4700
