Highlight: NF-041
NF-24-041 is a short, sandy road that links between NF-8620, and the paved NF-24. It also takes you to the Peterson Prairie Campground, and the alluring Natural Bridges. These bridges were formed over 12,000 years ago, by a nearly one-mile long lava flow from Mt Adams. After the tunnels collapsed, some areas stayed intact, creating these bridges where you can overlook the trenches that remain. The bridges can be reached by walking a short distance from the trailhead, and the total loop is approximately a mile in length. The trail is clearly worn, and thus easy to stay on. It’s not challenging and is one that the whole family can enjoy, though be cautious since there are no railings present near or on the bridges. While the bridges are easily wide enough for safe crossing, the drop below leads to very rocky terrain. Snowshoeing and cross-country skiing are also popular attractions in this region during the winter months. At the end of the trail, you can turn right on NF-24 to go to Trout Lake and the Guler Ice Caves, or turn left for the Peterson Prairie Campground, and to continue on the Cascade Overland Route. This trail is part of the Washington Cascade Overland Route. Visit Overlanding Across Washington for more information, including which trails to take next.
