A 12mi (2800' ascent) Naneum Wilson Tr1371 OAB is sufficient for a good intermediate rider excursion. Adding any of the spur trails entails some FR35 road climbing but the road segments are short enough to make a loop ride worth the effort.

Covered in the guide below, the usual loop ride is Naneum Wilson Tr1371 to Wilson Cr Tr1387 to FR35, returning on Naneum Meadows Tr1389.

Table Mountain Tr1209 is part of the Naneum Rock Garden trail system.

Wilson Creek Tr1387 forms the southern boundary of this spur trail system, and is relatively flat. From the Riders Cabin TH, the trail passes through meadows and lodgepole pine, passing Naneum Wilson Tr1371 before ending at High Creek Tr1354 in a sage meadow.

The 6mi (1600' ascent) Naneum Meadows Tr1389 to Owl Creek Tr1371.2 CCW Loop is good as an end of day ride.

Naneum Meadows Tr1389 forms the northern boundary, traversing the northern Owl Creek drainage and descending moderately through meadows and old-growth lodgepole pine. The random cow may want to occasionally share this trail.

Note: The .5mi trail segment between FR3530 and the Naneum Meadows Tr1389 intersection is sometimes called Naneum Wilson Tr1371 and sometimes called Naneum Meadows Tr1389 (as described in the routing guide).

Nearby First Creek Tr1374 upper TH is at the Lion Rock Campground, with the lower TH just past FR3507 and a steady grade across the 3mi trail, passing through several sage meadows along the way.

Orv: Nealey Cr Tr4W315 is FR315 and Ragan Tr4W316 is FR316.

Directions: NW Forest Pass required right at the TH. Drive to the top of Sauk Pass (Blewett Pass / US97) and head east on FR9716 at the summit. Go 4mi and turn left onto FR9712, then go 1.5mi and turn right on FR35, then left on FR3530 to Naneum Meadows. Go 2.2mi to the Naneum Meadows TH. View Larger Map. No Map?.
