The Town of Naches is located in a valley at the foothills of the Cascade Mountain range 12 miles west of Yakima on U.S. Highway 12. The Town is a small residential community of 805 with its roots in agriculture and logging and a multitude of nearby outdoor recreational opportunities.
The Town of Naches is a great place to raise a family, enjoy retirement, or enjoy a summer home. It hosts the Naches Valley School District, a Blue Ribbon Award School. The community provides a quality rural lifestyle to residents in close proximity to the larger city of Yakima for additional services.
Also located in the Town of Naches is the Naches Ranger Station which manages a portion of the nearby Wenatchee National Forest. The Cascade Mountains west of the Town of Naches provide opportunities to watch wildlife, hike, ski, fish, boat, hunt, snowmobile, and bike in numerous recreational areas along White Pass Scenic Byway and Chinook Pass Scenic Byway. The Town enjoys quick access to the expanded White Pass Ski Area.
If you enjoy a small town atmosphere and desire a quality way of life, play at our two local parks (Applewood and Cleman’s View), walk the Greenway started at the Naches Trailhead or visit the restored Visitor’s Center in the historic Train Depot, complete with restrooms.
Please join the community in celebrating our annual Sportsman’s Days Celebration held each September.
