Trail Information

Highlights

After departing from NF-024 Connector, you can continue on with NF-8821. It’s a little over 5 miles, so it’ll be longer than most of the recent trails. Early on in the trail, the path is still sandy, but it begins to transition to dirt and gravel once more, with some potholes present too. Waypoint 3 brings you to Trail 35, which is open to hikers, bikers, equestrian riders, and OHV use. It follows a 1 mile decommissioned road until entering Deadhorse Meadow and continues to Smoky and Little Goose Creek before ending on Trail 26. This hiking trail and many others in the region were developed in the late 1800s by sheepherders and followed existing Native American trails. They traveled from eastern Oregon to graze their sheep on these summer ranges. Once you reach the end of this trail, you’ll to turn right onto NF-88; a paved road that will take you to the start of the next trail, NF-8810, or continue further on to the town of Trout Lake, for fuel and supplies. This trail is part of the Washington Cascade Overland Route. Visit Overlanding Across Washington for more information, including which trails to take next.
