Overview

Bethel Ridge is a nearly 6-mile-long drive through the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest. Bethel has many things to offer, like views of the surrounding mountains, including Adams, Rimrock Lake, and of course an amazing ridgeline view. A frequent attraction of travelers on this road is taking a picture of their vehicles overlooking the ridge below, in Waypoint 4. After the viewpoint, you’ll turn left into the woods, and face some challenges, including various dips and a few shallow drop-offs into small water holes. After this romp among the trees, the trail opens up again for a leisurely drive as you finish the trail, and enter DNR land. This trail is part of the Washington Cascade Overland Route. Visit Cascade Overland Route for more information, including which trails to take next. If you are already following the Washington Cascade Overland Route, this will be the first trail posing challenges, though not the last.
