Mountain Bike Resource - Trails - Mission Ridge Ride Summary
Once a very rugged trail, recent improvements have made Mission Ridge excellent for mountain biking. The ride follows the same road up as Devils Gulch but branches off about 2 miles down from the top. This trail is a little more demanding than the Devils Gulch trail as it has several steep climbs and decents to contend with after you have already climbed over 3,000 feet on road.
Directions To Trailhead
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.
