Snowmobiling

Snowmobiling is a big sport in Okanogan County.  Okanogan Highlands is in the northeast part of the County.  Eden Valley Guest Ranch borders the US Forest Service Mt. Hull Section of the Tonasket Ranger District.  The Forest Service Travel plan identifies rules for use of the public lands both winter and summer.  The Washington State Parks web site identifies trail locations with maps showing trails and parking areas and also has rules for use.  That web site is  http://parks.state.wa.us/130/Winter-Recreation.
