Family Trails & Conditions

Happy Summer!
Summer has arrived in the Methow Valley. Best to get an early start to beat the heat. Then hit a river or lake for an afternoon Sup. Don't have your own Sup? We rent and sell them!

Hi, I'm Charles but you can call me Chuck. I’ve been a shop dog my entire life. I like the shop because it's where I get my belly rubbed, kids pet me, delivery drivers bring me treats, and lucky locals take me on hikes from time to time.

When I'm not at the shop (or going big in the back country), you might find me running around a great off-leash bike trail out at Big Valley which is about half-way between Winthrop and Mazama. Be safe and take care out there!
