Naches Heights-Wenas Lake Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Here’s a near-50-miler that scales the orchard-‘n’ vineyard-rich heights above the Naches Valley before dropping down, crossing the Naches River, and heading north for the wideopen roads (and possible winds) of the Wenas Valley.

The word “heights” implies climbing, no surprise that you’ll have to pedal up a steep mile to get up there. The word “valley” should not imply climbing, but to get to Wenas Valley requires surmounting another milelong spot-of-bother that’s even steeper: the Naches–Wenas grade, which has pitches to 12 percent."
