The best early season trail for mountain biking, horseback riding, and hiking. Crossings at Scatter and Slate creeks may become difficult in the spring due to high water. Generally up and down route is along hillside above the Twisp River. Highlights: Occasional views. A good day trip for a family outing.

This is a multi use trail, please respect other users. (hiking / horses)

 7/30/2017 Dusty in places. Several trees down between Slate Creek and the Twisp River Road crossing-which is the best flow part of the trail. As usual, some sniper rocks on the upper section-between Gilbert and Scatter creek. Best place to ride on hot days.

 Slate Creek was raging on memorial day. Didn't attempt to cross.
