    Stehekin rides????

    Any good xc rides across the lake? I don't mean under water either. I see there are a number of dirt roads to ride but was curious about single track.

    Plan is to take the family to Stehekin and get some ride time, fly fishing or variations of both.

    No idea on the riding up there (will be curious to see) but right now.... InciWeb the Incident Information System: Moore Point
    Don't know what the air quality is up there at the moment.

    I looked briefly into that a while ago. Looked like everything would be a poach as everything up there is hiker/horse only.

    The head of the lake is all Lake Chelan National Recreation Area (Lake Chelan National Recreation Area | National Park Foundation). I suspect you can ride all the road and former road in the Stehekin Valley, but I believe riding the trails would be poaching. I'm sure the residents of Stehekin ride bikes on the roads up there.

    Thanks for the input. I guess looking for old double track will be in order.

    I don;t know about the rest of the gang here, but I have been using wilderness.net's map as a tool to see what can and can't be done. Just yesterday I was looking at Stehekin and I still don't see a way into it other than taking the boat. Is there even a dirt road that leads to Stehekin from the outside?
    Good friction shifting is getting hard to find nowadays....

    Nope. Hike or boat. Or horseback I suppose.
