TRONSON MEADOWS NON-MOTORIZED AREA: Just north of 4000 ft. Blewett Pass on U.S. 97 is the Tronson Meadows non-motorized winter recreation area.. This area is part of the Leavenworth Ranger District. There is a maze of roads and trails in this area offering all levels of technical challenge and having in common the official protection from encroaching snowmobiles and their attendant noise and stink. Two roads access this area. Road # 7245 is nearest the pass and Road # 7240 is perhaps 1/8 mile further down the highway. Neither is an official Sno-Park but the WA. State DOT often does a fairly thorough job of plowing parking spots anyway. When it is actively snowing there is the possibility of being plowed in by DOT plows clearing the highway. Carry a shovel in your car!  The USFS has just put out a new ski trail map for Tronsen Basin. (see below).  There are summertime trails out of Tronson Basin which lead up onto Tronson ridge but they are poorly marked and quite steep. Diamond Head, the prominent rock outcropping which hangs over the basin to the south, can be climbed by scrambling directly up from Rd. # 7245 but caution must be exercised here as the terrain steepens and avalanche becomes more of a threat.   Downloadable PDF map: Click Here
