At the rate that it is not snowing this year... I figure with luck the manashtash ridge area will hopefully be mostly clear by the 4th of July. Anyone interested in a trip up the I-90 corridor for some higher elevation wheeling? The trails that would be ran range from easy to hard on the subaru wheeling scale... With plenty of options for anyone, but at least an LSD would be suggested if you are leaving the forest service roads. A lift, over sized tires and a Lincoln locker would be required for Tripod Flats and moderate to difficult trails. A lot of the trails in this area run near or along ridge lines which have gorgeous views of the surrounding countryside.
Examples of trails out of the Riders and Manashtash Camp Area: Tripod Flats, Shoestring, Manashtash Ridge, Divide Ridge (fairly easy with a ton of opt outs at road crossings)...
Night wheeling is legal in the National Forest, so I'm sure we could make a night run up the Divide trail or up to the top of the manashtash ridge area. Vehicle Limit would be set at around 15 vehicles. I'll double check the requirement for being considered an Event. National Forest Pass is required to camp in the Wenatchee National Forest $30 for the year or their is a daily rate of $5 a day.
So who would be in?
