Trail Overview

The Washington Backcountry Discovery Route (WABDR) is a trail that runs from Canada to Oregon, initially designed for adventure and dual-sport motorcycles as well as 4X4 vehicles. This trail covers most of section 4. Unfortunately, the tail end of section 4 was still snowed in at this particular time and was deemed not passable. This section covers terrain from Wenatchee to Lake Chelan when completely passable. Section 4 heading North up Nahahum (pronounces nah-hum) Canyon from Cashmere brings drivers to a 360deg view atop Chumstick Peak at approximately 5,810 feet of elevation. The route winds up Roaring Ridge in the Entiat Mountains before reaching descending steep switchbacks to the one-store town of Ardenvoir, which has basic rations, gas, and a small cafe. The cafe was closed at this time.

Difficulty

I rated this trail a level three at this point in time because of snow conditions, particularly those on tight ledges. However if there had been no snow, the rating for this trail may be slightly less.
