Great views of the entire Methow Valley on singletrack ridgeline trails enjoyable by every rider. This route is one of the most popular in the Methow Valley.

This is the primary trail of either the Buck Mountain Trail Figure 8 or Loop rides.

To the Trailhead: From Winthrop, drive 1/8 mile west on Highway 20 to the West Chewuch Road. Turn right. Drive north 6 miles to the Cub Creek Road and follow for 1.7 miles. Park at any one of the pullouts near the end of the paved road. Continue up the Cub Creek Road. Stay right at the first fork, heading onto road 100. At the "Deer Country" interpretive sign bear right onto marked jeep track and singletrack. After traversing the ridge, the route eventually joins road 025 and heads back down to Cub Creek Road. Take a right on Cub Creek Road and head back to the start.
