Trail Information


R-1000 is one of the connecting roads to and from Bethel Ridge; this one traveling east toward the town of Nile and away from Rimrock Lake. The trail takes you out of the end of the Okanogan Wenatchee National Forest, and into Department of Natural Resources land. Unlike the nearby Bethel Ridge, R-1000 has no substantial drop-offs, nor muddy holes to watch out for; short of a few puddles. Rather, it’s a nice, brush filled trail often surrounded by trees, but with a few barren patches. If traveling east from Bethel Ridge, the drive will be spent as a descent, before arriving at an intersection with Meloy Canyon Road. This trail is part of the Washington Cascade Overland Route.

The trail is very dry and dusty. If you don't air down, the loose rocks will be very rough on you. It appears that there is some widening of the trail going on in the flat open areas and it's not always obvious which one is the official road, but the staying on the rocks seems to be the right place. It's a scenic drive, but nothing challenging.

Decent little connecting trail to Bethel Ridge. I believe that it’s also part of leg 2 of the WABDR. Nothing difficult about the trail but it was very neat to see the changes in terrain as we moved away from Bethel Ridge and towards Nile

A variety of woods and open areas with grasses. Make sure to stay on the trail as to not widen the trail.
