Devil's Gulch, Washington - Washington Mountain Biking
One of Washington State's best early season rides, Devil's Gulch near Wenatchee Washington, also offers one of the most exciting downhills. The decent loses more than 3,000 feet in 12 miles on tight, winding singletrack. The trail is very well maintained, giving you plenty of opportunities to release the brakes levers.
To get to the top, you can ride up the same singletrack that brings you down, ride up well graded fire roads, or use the two car shuttle system, leaving one at the bottom and driving to the top.
The top is the ideal place to re-fuel and enjoy the grand view of Washington's Cascade Mountain Range, which is home to some of the best singletrack riding in the world.
To get here, drive to Cashmere via Hwy 2 (about 10 miles west of Wenatchee). There are two exits into town. Take the first if you are coming from the west. Take the second if coming from the east. Continue straight through the stoplight on Division Street. Round the corner and the road turns into Pioneer Street. Turn left on Mission Creek Road for 1/2 mile then turn right crossing Mission Creek and turn left back onto Mission Creek Road. In 7.4 miles the road turns to gravel. Road forks. Take the left fork, #7100 for another 2.7 miles. Park at a designated parking lot on the right side. There is an outhouse here for your convenience.
