Trail Overview

Umtanum ridge road is a dirt road with a few deep rutted sections. There are multiple switchbacks as you continue up the hills and as you come down. There is a small bridge crossing with an excellent camping spot both to the right and the left of the bridge. Continuing up the mountains involves some steep inclines and some deeply rutted sections. Loose rocks and dirt road sections cover most of the terrain. Rattlesnakes have been seen on this trail, so please exercise caution around wildlife.

Trail had a lot of rocks and holes. But otherwise pretty good. Had to air down to 25 psi!

Beautiful conditions, with a couple muddy ruts and a couple rocky inclines. I went east to west. In that direction there is a ~16 degree rocky downhill in the second half, which might be challenging to climb or sketchy in the wet, depending on your vehicle. The western half also had some tight-ish spots where careful attention was required to avoid pinstripes on my Raptor - but not quite bad enough for me to get out my hedge trimmer. Stay on top and out of the ruts, and this should be a nice trip for any 4x4 with decent clearance.

Trail was open and drivable. Light snow on the ground and a ton of large surface frozen puddles. One downhill section was a bit sketchy with the frozen snow, but not a bad trek overall.
