The unincorporated community of Mazama is situated at the northwestern end of the Methow Valley near the headwaters of the beautiful Methow River. Due west you’ll enter the wild, dramatic North Cascade mountains via Washington and Rainy Passes on the Cascade Loop Scenic Highway (WA State Route 20).
Natural features of Mazama and surrounding territory include rushing Early Winters Creek, icy turquoise Lost River, iconic Goat Peak complete with the historic Fire Lookout and Goat Wall, a long-time destination for rock climbers. Close by (via Forest Service road) is Hart’s Pass, featuring access to the Pacific Crest Trail and the Pasayten Wilderness. At over 6000’, this is the highest point in Washington State you can drive a car.
The Mazama Store serves as the hub of ‘town’ offering “a little bit of everything good”. In all directions from the store and tucked enticingly in scenic settings you’ll find working ranches, full time residences, stylish, contemporary second homes and rustic get-a-way cabins.
All about outdoor recreation, residents and visitors both enjoy the Methow Trails, offering the most extensive Nordic ski trail system in the US, also used for snow shoeing & snow bikes. Summer hiking, mountain biking, fishing, horse pack trips, camping, Heli-skiing, backcountry skiing and
paragliding are just some of the ways you can enjoy the great outdoors!
Great restaurants, lodging, and a few shops round out the Mazama experience.
