This pleasant trail is shared by hikers, backpackers, mountain bikes and dirt bikes. All visitors will ultimately reach Mad Lake and its pretty surrounding meadows.
There are two ways to get to Mad Lake. You can take the Upper Mad River Trail from Pine Flats Campground near Entiat to Maverick Saddle. On this route, there are trail connections to Lost Lake, Whistling Pig Meadow, and other destinations in the area.
You can also access the area using the Lower Mad River trail.
