Overview

Shoestring Trail is located in the Okanogan - Wenatchee National Forest and is one of the more technical trails found in the Manastash ORV trail system. Ready for a more technical challenge? Then Shoestring is a great choice. Much of Shoestring Trail traverses a burnt forest. So while wrestling with the technical hill climbs, take some time to observe how the forest is working to recover its previous pristine beauty. You just can't imagine the destructive force and heat that a forest fire is capable of unless you drive through a burned area like this one. Try and imagine just how hot this must have been. What was a sad incident at the time becomes something of a rare beauty when you see nature on a path of recovery. This forest fire, while tragic at the time, is a natural process. And this forest, while severely burnt, is well on it's way to replacing what was lost and takes on its own special wonder in the process.
