LEAVENWORTH to ENTIAT to LAKE CHELAN ride recommendations

I'm planning a dual sport ride from Leavenworth to lake chelan next month. As much dirt roads/trails as possible, minimal pavement. 2-3 nights, camping where ever we stop. I would appreciate any routes, sites, recommendations. Thanks!

multiple ways to get to Entiat/Ardenvour then a few ways to get from there to the lake.could do it in 4 hours the short fast way or you could do it in a long day riding the long way fast. lots of routes to choose from.
Would be nice to call the Green Circus crew and beg for info on closed/open roads, that is if they know or you get an awake/aware person on the phone who will actually do the job we pay tax fees to for. Oh I digress that's another story those people are pathetic.
It's a fun ride!

hey wait a min why are you riding from Der Town? Why not ride from Eburg?

So are you actually riding into Cashmere or?

FYI from the Entiat road Mud Creek road is the easy way,
Try the Bear creek road from the top of Navare to Chelan.

Im in Chelan and would love to ride around with someone. When you come up this way shoot me a message. Im new to this area but ive been exploring about a 30 mile radius. Mostly to the west side but not very much due to being solo. I would definitely be down to ride back to Leavenworth from Chelan or wherever when you make your way up this way.
cheers!

Lake Creek Trail to Shady Pass is fun. You can head over to Chelan via roads or head back down Devils Backbone but do your research in the difficulty of Devils Backbone depending on your skill level.
Lake Creek trail is fun.

Lake Creek trail is lot so fun.

Double check on the skill level. That's a hell of a spot to get a 650 stuck.

Yes so when are you going? I might play, or you may not want chasers?

Head out eagle Creek Road off the Chumstick Highway, left at the end of pavement. For more distance, go out past Fish Lake, left at the next paved road, and follow it up through Deer Camp, Maverick Saddle, past Sugarloaf Lookout, and generally wind along through Ardenvoir for gas and then up Mud creek along the WABDR to 25-Mile State Park on Lake Chelan. Easy day ride, but start early.

PS: tdfox and I live in Cashmere, if you need help.

I'd leave Leavenworth backtracking on the route I followed into Leavenworth until it joins (or is close to) WABDR, then follow that to Chelan.

From Ellensburg, I think you can get more off pavement riding if you go to Wenatchee instead of Leavenworth, then up 97Alt to Swankane Canyon.

Have fun, ride safe.

I sure wouldn't take a 650 on many of the trails in the Mad River/Entiat/Devil's Backbone area.. there are a few that an intermediate to advanced rider would be OK on, but not many, and you'd have to know which ones, because some of those trails, you get in too far, and you simply cannot turn around or back up on without a whole lot of effort.
