Minnow Ridge Tr1524 and Chikamin Orv Tie Tr1561 (aka Chikamin Ridge) form half of a CW loop ride, descending on Alder Ridge Tr1523.
Ding: The quality of the ride depends on the amount of recent Orv use and resulting trail conditions, and this ride should generally be avoided on the weekends or late summer.
Plan for a late July to early August weekday ride, or choose a non-ORV ride in the area. There are plenty of great ride options in the northern Wenatchee National Forest which do not require sharing the trail with quads.
Chikamin Orv Tie Tr1561 has an ascent incline of 12%, with a 6% incline on Minnow Ridge Orv Tr1524, with a steep climb from 2600' to 3300' then a gradual ascent to 3600'.
The alternative is to climb FR6210...but no one talks about epic fireroad climbs, do they?
The Minnow Ridge Orv Tr1524 to Chikamin Creek Orv Tr1534 loop is the short ride option (10mi, 3300' ascent), limiting the ride to ORV trails.
Lower Chiwawa Orv Tr1548 can be added to extend the ride.
FR6210 and FR6101 create several shuttle options.
The best shuttle option is to park at Maverick Saddle and ride Mad River Orv Tr1409.1 to Alder Ridge Tr1523, leaving the other vehicle at the lower Alder Ridge Tr1523 TH.
