East side of lake is clear with patchy snow lingering on west side. Enjoy something for everyone at Pearrygin Lake State Park. Beginner to intermediate rolling hills on single and double track trails with beautiful lake and mountain vistas. Start at the Lake Creek trailhead or other multiple access points and create your own ride. Do a loop or out-n-back, add the Bear Creek Road, make it long, make it short, it's all up to you. Electric assist bikes allowed.


Big Valley

Inner loop and outer loop meadow sections clear of snow. Patchy snow remains in trees. Valley-bottom, wide, multi-use trail located between Winthrop and Mazama. Great for families, canine friends and beginner riders. Trail travels through forest, meadows and along the Methow river. 4-6 miles. Thanks to an agreement between the Department of Fish and Wildlife and Methow Trails, no pass required for parking or riding. Electric assist bikes not allowed.


Lower Sun Mountain Trails

Many easy, well-signed trails include Beaver Ponds, Little Wolf, Sunnyside, Lower & Upper Fox, Rodeo and Aqualoop. Electric assist bikes not allowed.


Winthrop Pump Track

Located directly across the street from Methow Cycle & Sport (and next to the baseball field), this is a fun pit stop for the young'ins (and adults too)! It's also a great place to practice your overall cycling balance and riding skills. Electric assist bikes not allowed.



"Let's do This"

Hi, I'm Charles but you can call me Chuck. I’ve been a shop dog my entire life. I like the shop because its 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!
