Trail Overview

South Cle Elum Ridge is a 6.5-mile, maintained gravel forest service road climbing from roughly 2,200' up to 4,000' in elevation. This is a segment of a larger North-South 60-mile Overlanding route connecting Cle Elum and the Highway 90 Corridor to Nile on the 410 on gravel forest service roads through the Taneum - Manastash ORV area in the Wenatchee National Forest. The ORV trails in this area are open from June 15 - October 15 but many of the lower elevation forest service roads are open and accessible year-round. This route tops out at about 5,000' and is likely clear by mid-May. The higher elevation routes to the West often are still snowbound well into July.
