Green Trails Wenatchee No. 211S
At the time of our ride, June 20th, the whole area was snow free. Conditions were muddy on trail 1221 and on Devils Gulch Trail #1220. It was not so muddy that the trails were impassable or damage was being done by being on them. Stream crossings were shin deep. Mission Ridge #1201 was in good condition with mud only in large pot holes made from motor bikes. Mosquitoes were really bad at the junction Trail 1221 and Devils Gulch. The trails were free of blow downs and not very over grown at all.
The surrounding area was also snow free. Only a few patches could be seen towards Mission Ridge Ski Area. If you�re planning on going to the Tronsen Meadow area you should be fine. The privy at the TH was clean and well stocked. There were several groups camping at the TH as well. The area could use a cleaning though.
Get out there!
