Preston Creek Road is a relaxing snowshoe along Forest Service Road 5501, accessible directly off Entiat River Road. The path is easy to follow and features several amazing viewpoints. Less than a mile from the trailhead (0.75 miles to be precise), views of the Entait Valley open up, and as you continue up 1.5 miles, Baldy Mountain comes into view. The modest elevation gain is quite gradual, and while you can usually hear the traffic from the Entiat River Road, the noise is minimal.
