The Historic Naches Pass Wagon Trail is one of the most poplar trails in the Northwest. We like to run this trail in the fall after the dust is gone and we do it in the opposite direction of the settlers for more of a challenge climbing the west end.
On Friday October 2nd, 2015 Eastern Washington Adventures members met up at Lost Meadow to camp for the annual “Wagons East! Naches Pass Trail 4×4 Run”.
Saturday October 3rd around 10 AM we headed from our camp at Lost Meadow off of NF19 to cross over to Pyramid Pass with 4 rigs. On the West side as we started up the Naches Pass Trail, a couple in a JK from Seattle decided to join us.
As we worked our way east to the beginning of the trail we stopped to see the sights.
We stopped at Government Meadows on Naches Pass 4×4 Trail for lunch where we ran into a group of women doing their annual Doe Run. As they pulled out a few of the Peak Putters 4×4 Club pulled in.
We packed up and headed out again. As we got to one of the many bridges we cross, we had to do a miniature work party on it because there were broken boards and it was not passable at the time.
At FS1913 we turned off the Naches Pass Trail to skip the newer tight part near the east end. We went back to camp and to eat dinner around the propane campfires.
This was a great day thanks to all who came and the people we met on the trail.
On Sunday we did a run up the Copper City 4×4 Trail. Report coming soon.
