Trail Information


Murdock Road is an exciting trail with an abundance of views. The trail begins in Murdock Gulch, located 15 miles west of Chelan, Washington, in the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest. As it climbs, the route weaves around the surrounding hills, with amazing views around every corner. Rather than being a lush, flowing forest, this area is thinly treed with lots of brush, making for sharper and more distinct textures when looking at the valleys below. It’s a fun ridgeline drive that’s definitely worth a visit, and sure to leave a lasting memory from your time in 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.
