Natural Features

The Okanogan-Wenatchee is a stunning and unique National Forest, with high, glaciated alpine peaks towering along the Cascade Crest. Lush valleys of old-growth forest define its western boundary, and at its eastern edge, rugged shrub-steppe country comprises a more arid region. Elevations range from below 1,000 feet to over 9,000 feet.

The Naches River, adjacent to Little Naches Campground, is a tributary of the Yakima River in central Washington. In its upper reaches, the Naches River flows through rugged terrain and areas of pristine wilderness. Before it joins the Yakima River, it makes its way through valleys and is a significant irrigation source for areas northwest of Yakima.

Used by Native Americans and settlers throughout history, the river has served as an natural corridor between the east and west sides of the Cascades via Naches Pass.

Nearby Attractions

Boulder Cave National Recreation Trail is one of the most popular places in the Naches District. Visitors can walk the accessible trail along the river or explore Boulder Cave. Interpretive signs along the trail explain the geology, plants, animals and fire history of the area.

In the fall thousands of people come to experience whitewater rafting on both the Tieton and American Rivers.

Hikers may want to traverse at least a portion of the spectacular Pacific Crest Trail (PCT), one of the world's premier National Scenic Trails. This trail showcases some of North America's most fantastic scenery, winding its way from Mexico to Canada through California, Oregon and Washington.
