We left Chewelah, (NE Wa) heading east on Flowery Trail, going east for 10 miles to the staging area. Which is the Sno Park loop off to the right side of the road.
* The day before I down Avenza.com/pdf-maps. This is a wonderful tool if you have a mobile device. Once you down load Avenza, you can go on to the Forest Service web site, and download the Motor Vehicle Use Maps (MVUM) for the area you would like to ride. This is a free map from the Forest Service and instructions are on their map riding page. There are other maps you can purchase. It put the Cottonwood trail right on the screen and I could tell exactly where we were, and at each intersection.
