Cowiche Canyon is a Preserve manged by a Land Trust. It is a designated Area of Critical Environmental Concern, so PLEASE tread lightly. The Cowiche land trust consists of high desert highlands at the top of the hill which contain rolling, rocky and very fun singletrack. The canyon itself is magnificent and is very popular with hikers. Please DO NOT RIDE HERE WHEN MUDDY--because of the sensitive and unique ecological character of the area, access is tenuous at best.

Nice desert riding.  Good early Spring destination.
