The valley is beautiful and this would be a nice way to access the PCT (it is 8 miles from the TH), but sadly it is not maintained after the washed out bridge at 2.5 mi. You can follow the trail, but the brush is thick and the number of downed trees approaches 100. I wonder if the Methow Valley community can chip in to restore it? Everyone seems to be going to Harts Pass to access the PCT instead.
