Trail Overview

Wide, graded, and well-maintained gravel road accessing the Cle Elum Valley and its numerous alpine lakes and trailheads North of Cle Elum Lake. Watch your speed as there are many blind corners and a good deal of wildlife in the area. This road crosses private property ( a small collection of mountain cabins) at one point. There are numerous points where spring runoff crosses the road deep enough to prevent passenger cars from proceeding.
