Pole Creek Road is a 6.4-mile trail in the Okanogan Wenatchee National Forest. It is a fun trail with difficult sections and provides great views.

The first part of this trail consists of graded dirt and is relatively easy. The road becomes much more difficult at the intersection of Dirty Pole Road, FR 6305511, but this is where the excellent views begin. The trail becomes quite narrow, with several steep slopes.

There are many excellent views of the lake and the valley in this last section of the trail, and several campsites of various sizes.

Please be advised that the end of the road is the end of the gpx file for this road. The road is shown to continue on various maps, but in reality, it is extremely overgrown and is only passable for 100 feet before it dead ends, with little room to turn around. Also, maps may show a road down the ridge towards the lake, but this road is on private property and has several no-trespassing signs, so it should not be entered.

Overall, this is a fun trail, with excellent views and somewhat difficult obstacles to make it interesting. This trail is great for people who want to experience beautiful sightseeing locations, explore more technical terrain, or want to find a quiet campground near great views.
