Written Directions

In Waterville exit US Highway 2 just to the west of the Waterville town limits, turning onto Badger Mountain Road (P Road NW, at the dead end of P Road NW turn right onto Badger Mountain Road and follow this road up, and over Badger Mountain.The road crests over Badger Mountain above the City of Wenatchee. Descend the mountain road to the City of East Wenatchee, exiting onto Eastmont Drive. Eastmont Drive reconnects with US Highway 2 to the west.

Scenery

On the Waterville side, sweeping views of the snow capped peaks of the North Cascades, and on the Wenatchee side, an incredible birds eye view of the Wenatchee Valley. Apple orchards abound on the Wenatchee side, while pine forests hug the crest of the road, dropping down into prarie on the Waterville side.

Drive Enjoyment

The road has many sweeping curves, and is quite steep on both the north and south sides of the summit. The road is paved for the entire length and is in good repair.

Tourism Opportunities

There are pull outs in several locations where you can stop to admire the views on the Wenatchee side of the summit. There are no fuel or shopping stops once you depart Waterville from the north or Wenatchee from the south.

Motorcycle Road Additional info

An incredible road to ride in mid spring...wildflowers abound from the Waterville prarie to the summit.
