The Methow River is beautiful as it curves and winds thru the valley. Many place to stop and fish, picnic or just enjoy the scenery.. Makes the visit to this area memorable.

It is a very nice town to take a walk, access river, eateries, restaurants, etc. It is great to stay a night and just relax enjoying couple of hours in the evening while on cascade loop trip.

We have seen the river from various spots, and it's such a wonderful area to explore, cross the bridges, and sit on a picnic bench to relax. Even in August the water was high.

This is a beautiful river. Our group of 6 families stayed at Methow Tents (Rolling Huts) right on this river and it was fantastic. Young kids loved to play along the bank, some got out the fishing rods. Awesome time in a beautiful location.

Definitely take some time to visit the Methow River Valley. There are many places to access it, including right in the town of Winthrop where we explored. They have a cute footbridge in town, restaurants and shops backing onto it, and it just picture perfect.
