Trail Information


Swakane Road is a trail with long ruts and deep puddles. After traveling 5 miles north of Cashmere, you'll find yourself back in the trees of the eastern side of the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest. Early on the trail has many dips, followed by a long rut running down the center of the road. Rainy weather will make it more difficult, but also more enjoyable, as you drop down into deep puddles and slide around on some mud. Though it’s a brief trail, it’ll be fun for anyone looking to play in the puddles, or looking to venture further north into the forest. This trail is part of the Washington Cascade Overland Route. Visit Overlanding Across Washington for more information, including which trails to take next.

Nice trail that's pretty easy. I had a pretty uneventful trip using this route to start my trip up to Enitat Ridge road. Fun and not too technical if you pay attention.
