Methow Valley serves as the eastern gateway to North Cascades National Park and provides access to more than 680,000 acres of wilderness in the Pasayten and Lake Chelan-Sawtooth areas. The broad hay-swept valley is flanked by impressive peaks that offer countless recreation opportunities year-round.

Methow Valley in Washington's North Cascades landscape has incredible year-round recreation. Methow Valley also is located in one of the most heavily roaded watersheds in the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest, which The Wilderness Society is working to restore to a healthy state.
