About the Route
The Cross-Washington Mountain Bike Route is a self-supported mountain bike route traversing some of Washington's diverse geography on double track, gravel roads, singletrack and some paved roads. While the route uses portions of the Palouse to Cascades trail, this is not a rail trail ride. Anyone who has attempted the challenge will agree this is not an easy route.
The route travels through remote areas, however, there are many resupply opportunities available.

Following the route
You will need a GPS, the GPX files, and experience following a GPS route to successfully navigate the route. There are no signs and many turns are tricky. No cue sheets are available at this time. The route can be downloaded from ridewithgps.com.
Due to the remote nature of the Cross-Washington Mountain Bike Route, resources and opportunity for resupply are limited. Plan accordingly.
