The Mazama community has a crowd pleasing advantage for those looking to purchase a home, cabin or land with many recreation trails that meander through the upper Methow Valley area. It is our great fortune to have the local organization of M.V.S.T.A., (Methow Valley Sport Trails Association) as established some 25+ years ago by a few visionary denizens of the day! The vision was twofold... have a fun, fit, healthy way to get to and from work, a friends place for lunch or the grocery store as well as generate viable benefits to the local economy. More and more people are realizing the value of having an integrated trail system within their neighborhoods. 

Maybe it's a distant memory from over one hundred years ago when pioneers recognized the convenience of following the trails created by animals to indeed go through parts of the West and eventually establish their homestead, along the very trail that brought them to the place they call home. Today we are seeing the value of being on or near the trail system resulting in a healthier population, higher property values, and a super fun way to experience the landscapes and beautiful environments the area offers at every turn in the trail!  These trails have inspired many events that the community supports and enjoys as both active or passive participants. 

Whether you have a cabin,home or land with the trail system passing by or through the property it translates as a benefit. It makes it so inviting and convenient to step out your door and onto the trail for both mind and body benefits. Easy access at the many established maintained trail heads make it a pleasure to experience a low impact way to workout and alleviate the conventional congestion of the roads. I invite you to explore a trail that is near you soon! And by all means if you come to the Methow Valley, make the trail a priority on your list of things to do... Happy Trails!
