    Accessing Mission Ridge/Devils Gulch from Blewett Pass?

    There are a few posts that reference this route but I don't see any news that anyone's done it recently. Looking to do a clockwise loop down Tronsen and Red Hill then up DG. It looks like it's pushing 35 miles total. Sure, it's gonna be 90' this weekend.... I wanna go regardless.
    Ideas? Recommendations? (besides 'carry a lot of water')

    DG trail right now is probably the best shape it's been in years, I think because of lack of access for motos. I can't speak for Tronsen because I haven't been up there in a few years but you're looking at a healthy loop. Shouldn't be too hot up there but we're supposed to get some thunderstorms this weekend, so that might cool things down a bit.

    Are you going to go through Haney Meadows to Mt. Lillian and catch Tronsen there? You'll be able to refill water on DG in needed. You'll ride through some interesting burned patches on upper DG and Beehive Road on your way back.

    Yes, I think that's the idea. I am bringing a lightweight MSR filter expecting the need to refill.

    I rode Blewett pass to Wenatchee via trails back in the mid 80's with a good friend. Almost 30 years later and still one of my most memorable rides ever. Mtbs. were still fairly new then and I just remember how much terrain we could cover in a day compared to hiking. One of those rides that opened my eyes to what could really be done on a Mtb. The elk were bugling all around us.
