Overview

Van Epps Loop Trail is in the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest. This area is a great getaway from city life to unwind and enjoy the beautiful scenery in a peaceful setting. You can experience the undeveloped forest, clean streams, and if your lucky, get a glimpse of some deer or elk. Van Epps Loop is an alternate trail off of Van Epps Pass trail, located just North of Roslyn, Washington (home of the hit TV show "Northern Exposure"). It is only accessible for four-wheel-drive vehicles from the middle of June until November. Van Epps Loop provides an alternate route with wonderful views of a mountain top that is peacefully setting above an open meadow with lots of flowers and a small creek running across the trail and down onto the meadow.
