Primitive, alpine view trail along Nason ridge. Expect pushing at times. From Merritt lake, the trail climbs, steeply at times, to gain the ridge. Along the ridge, portions are very rideable, while others are steep and eroded. The side trip to the lookout is worthwhile, and frequently has mtn goats hanging out. Further east the downhill trend becomes steady and continuous, and the trail gets more defined and used. Some will ride the trail as an out and back from the Eastern TH near Lake Wenatchee.

      A foot of snow by the time you reach Round mt but still a rowdy descent coming down. Just one tree down.

      Did the loop up from the south through Kahler Glen Roads were a little muddy but the Nason Ridge single track back down to trailhead was fantastic!

      It's really sandy and dry with good sized moto ruts in the corners, basically moon dust most of the way down. I would wait for a good rain this...
