Enjoy miles of hiking through gentle high-country meadows and along a delightful river to a pretty lake ringed by pine forest and fl ourishing with wildlife. The Mad River country will leave you happy, but the Forest Service’s decision to allow motorcycles here won’t. However, you don’t need to shun this inviting corner of the Entiat Mountains. Motorcycle use is moderate and practically absent during the week. And there’s a window of motor-free (and horse-free) roaming from snowmelt until mid-July, when only hikers and wild critters are permitted to play in this enchanting backcountry.
