Cle Elum Ranger District, Trails

Cle Elum RD Conditions Home | Campgrounds | Roads


NOTICE:

All trails are closed to motorized use each year April 1 through June 15.

The US Forest Service coordinates with many volunteer groups who donate countless hours both in Wilderness and non-Wilderness areas.

Trail crews are working to clear trails in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness as snow melt allows.  In Trails

Crews are also working to clear trails on Table Mountain, in the Taneum and Teanaway as well as the Cle Elum Valley and I-90 corridor. Trails within the footprint of the 2013 Manastash Fire are also being worked on. Most trail bridges in this area were damaged or destroyed by fire. Debris including numerous nails remain as does many trees that have fallen across trails.

4WD and ATV Trails

4WD and ATV trails are designed and maintained for short wheel-based 4WD vehicles (such as Jeeps). Difficulty levels change according to and are dependent on operator skill level, type of vehicle, trail conditions and weather. It is very important that the user obtains and carries a Cle Elum Ranger District ORV map when venturing on these trails. Please contact the Cle Elum Ranger District if you have any questions about ORV trails, regulations and information on specific trails.

In addition to the district's ATV trail (ATV 30), ATV's are allowed on all 4x4 trails. It is not legal to operate ATV's on Forest Service roads. Motorized cross-country travel off roads and trails is prohibited.
