The Methow Community Trail links the towns of Winthrop and Mazama. The trailheads are located in Winthrop on the south side of town (next to ice rink), at the Mazama Junction (near the Mazama Store), and at various points along the route. From the Community Trail you can:

Connect to the Sun Mountain trails via Power's Plunge Trail and the Winthrop Trail.
Connection to the Rendezvous Loop via Goat Creek.

Remember, those walking or on horse have the right of way. Stop and say hello

Note that the Community Trail is not open from the Brown's Farm Trailhead south to Winthrop in the summer months.

       Bike touring from east to west and wanted to bypass the highway between Winthrop and Mazama and give this a try. Not sure it's worth it at least the section south of the river out of Winthrop. Pretty hard to follow in the beginning out of Winthrop and eventually you go through a logging area but finally you do take in a spectacular view when you get close to hwy 20. If you are intent on staying on dirt then it's worth it but if I were to do it again I would bypass the section south of the highway.

       Access and use is inaccurate. Some of the middle section crosses private land and currently part of a Methow Trails winter use easement for skiing. It is also NOT open to dogs.
