OFF The

Beaten

Path There’s plenty to discover in Kittitas County. Here are some suggestions that are off the beaten path:

No. 1

Telephone museum 221 E. First street • cle Elum

Cle Elum was one of the last cities in the country to use a manual telephone switchboard, and museum displays cover the history of telephone technology from 1901 to 1970. The museum has several switchboards dating back to the early 1900s, and telephones kids can try. The museum is open every day except Thursday from Memorial Day until Labor Day from noon to 4 p.m.

No. 2

Runje Field Roslyn

Runje Field is Roslyn is a great place to picnic and play. There’s a first-rate playground for kids, and the park sits next to the historic Coal Mines Trail, which connects Ronald, Roslyn and Cle Elum. Runje Field is named after local booster Slim Runje. The park plays host to the High Country Log Show over Labor Day weekend, the Run to Roslyn car show, the Croatian Picnic and other community events.

No. 3

Craig’s Hill castle chestnut & Fifth Avenue • Ellensburg

The castle on Third Avenue has been one of Ellensburg’s most recognizable buildings since it was built in 1889. It was constructed with the intention of making it the governor’s mansion when Ellensburg was one of the sites in the running for the state capital. Today, the building is rented out as apartments.

No. 4 Above: Runje Field in Rolsyn provides a great open space to play and enjoy a picnic. Below: The castle on Craig’s Hill is one of Ellensburg’s iconic buildings.

Fossil forest 4511 huntzinger Rd • Vantage

The Gingko Petrified Forest and Wanapum Recreational Area along the Columbia River near Vantage offer camping, boating, a small interpretive center and day use/picnic area. Petrified wood was discovered in the region in the early 1930s, which led to creation of the park as a national historic preserve.

No. 5

“The Bull” Rotary Pavilion • Downtown Ellensburg

“The Bull” statue is a well loved fixture in downtown Ellensburg, but it wasn’t always popular. Controversy over the statue by the late artist Richard Beyer in downtown Ellensburg sparked some 80 letters to the editor to the Daily Record in the 1980s. Beyer and his supporters overcame concerns about the original title of the piece (“The Cowboy”) and its anatomical correctness to have it placed at Rotary Pavilion.

No. 7

Tunnels iron horse Trail • Upper Kittitas county

Tunnels along the Iron Horse Trail in Kittitas County are relics of the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific Railroad. Today they are a draw for cyclists and other recreationists. The crown jewel is the Snoqualmie Tunnel, a 2.3-mile-long pathway underneath the pass which reopened to the public in 2011 after repairs.

No. 8

Fire lookouts Red Top and Thorp mountains

Kittitas County still has two U.S. Forest Service fire lookouts. One, on top of Red Top Mountain, is staffed by volunteers throughout the summer. The other, on top of Thorp Mountain, isn’t staffed, but Forest Service personnel are occasionally sent to the lookout during times of high fire risk. For more on the trails to the lookouts, go the Washington Trails Association website — www.wta.org.

The Teanaway Guard Station.

No. 6

Teanaway Guard Station Teanaway Road

This U.S. Forest Service cabin sits in the Teanaway River drainage is available for rent during from June through mid-November and mid-December through early April. It was originally constructed by gold miner Archie Redding, who built the cabin near Mineral Springs. When he died in 1978, it came into Forest Service possession and was used as a fire guard station until it was open to the public for reservations in 2004. For more information, contact the Cle Elum Ranger District. Reservations are available online.

No. 9

Running water spittoon The Brick tavern 100 W. Pennsylvania Avenue • Roslyn

The Brick Saloon of Roslyn, circa 1889, is not only a historic structure in its own right but also is the showcase of vintage interior fixtures, including a 100-year-old back bar made in England and a 23-foot-long running-water spittoon. John Buffo and Peter Giovanni, original business owners, installed a gutterlike metal trough along the bottom of the bar that swishes away spit with running water. This, they believed, was much better than accumulating saliva and phlegm in an upright metal spittoon. The running-water spittoon is used by The Brick for its annual Indoor Running Water Spittoon Boat Races and Regatta in early March when small model boats are raced along the length of swishing spittoon.

Taking a drive anywhere in Kittitas County is sure to live up to expectations. Enjoy the leaves changing colors in the fall and the livestock grazing in the spring.

No. 1

Yakima River Canyon

Drive the 22-mile Yakima River Canyon Highway (state Route 821) southeast of Ellensburg to Selah, and you might catch a glimpse of big horn sheep, deer or bald eagles.

Roslyn to Salmon la Sac

Drive along state Route 903 north of Roslyn for tremendous views of jagged Cascade peaks, the Cle Elum River and quiet mountain lakes. The paved route ends at Salmon la Sac, which has 67 camp sites and a free day-use picnic area nestled between the Cle Elum and Cooper rivers. The area is popular for camping, hiking, boating, cross-country skiing, berry picking, kayaking, picnicking and more. The Gallagher trailhead near the Salmon la Sac area provides a popular motorized off-road vehicle area. Horses can be lodged in the corrals at the Forest Service’s Cayuse Horse Camp, near the Salmon la Sac guard station. The road is plowed all the way to Salmon la Sac in the winter.


BaRn QuiLT TRaiL Starting in 2012, a group of local volunteers made it their mission to set up a self-guided route of folk-art murals on barns around Kittitas County. They quickly succeed. Today there are more than 100 murals on area barns, and each painted quilt block has its own story. Visitors will be able to spot some of the quilt squares at the Kittitas County fairgrounds and in downtown Ellensburg, but there also are several scenic routes you can take to find the quilt squares. The county’s arid climate has preserved old barns, and many are still in use today for hay and livestock. For more information and maps of the locations, go to myellensburg.com or stop by the Kittitas County Chamber of Commerce office in Ellensburg or Cle Elum.

No. 5

State Route 10

If you are looking for a scenic alternative to the traffic on Interstate 90, try state Route 10, which runs from Ellensburg to Cle Elum. The route follows the Yakima River. You’ll see picturesque farmland, wind turbines and people fishing and floating. It’s particularly scenic drive in September and October when the leaves begin to change color.

No. 6

Teanaway Road

The Teanaway Road offers dazzling views of the Teanaway River and valley. While the paved portion of the Teanaway Road is in good condition, high-clearance vehicles are advised for the unpaved portion of the road about 15 miles into the valley.

Farming is a way of life in Kittitas County. While the area is known for Timothy Hay and cattle, it also has a thriving 4-H program, two popular farmers markets and a number of sustainable organic farms. Here are some ideas for farm and field adventures:

No. 1

Fresh for the picking The Kittitas Valley has farm stands in operation in Ellensburg, Kittitas and outside of Thorp that offer an array of seasonal produce.

Visitors can arrange farm tours at Windy N ranch for an up-close experience. October is prime time to plan a visit, with several places hosting fall festivals and events. Huffman Farms is open weekends in October with u-pick pumpkins, hayrides and other fall activities. Suncadia has a fall festival the first two weekends of the month at the Nelson Dairy Farm, and Dusty’s Nursery also has a fall event.

No. 2

Farmers markets

No. 3

The Kittitas County Farmers Market in Ellensburg runs from May through October. The market is open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays on Fourth Avenue between Pearl and Ruby streets downtown. Market-goers often are treated to live musical performances and once a year, in the fall, the market welcomes street performers for Buskers in the Burg. In the Upper County, the Roslyn Farmers Market runs 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sundays from mid-June through mid-September. It features an array of fruit, vegetables, flowers, baked goods and crafts, and often includes live music. The Roslyn Yard is good place to meet friends and have a snack while listening to music.

The county fair

Ellensburg Something for

Everyone

Ellensburg is known for Central Washington University and its famous rodeo, but it is also art and music destination with easy access to the outdoors.

On the north side of town is Central Washington University, which first opened its doors as the Washington State Normal School in 1891, two years after Washington became a state. The normal school became Central Washington College of Education in 1937, Central Washington State College in 1961, and Central Washington University in 1977. About 9,000 students attend CWU’s Ellensburg campus. Its nearly year-round offerings of events and activities bring vibrancy to the town. Ellensburg boasts a successful lineup of festivals and community events year round that bring in tourists, entertain the locals and celebrate the town’s history, including Spirit of the West, Dachshunds on Parade, Jazz in the Valley and Buskers in the Burg. Ellensburg’s historic downtown is a destination that offers small-town charm, a vibrant history and a diverse collection of shops, restaurants and galleries. Much of downtown was destroyed by the Great Fire of 1889 and the community quickly rebuilt. As a reminder, a mural on the side of the Davidson building on Pearl Street depicts a phoenix rising from the ashes. The city is a leader in renewable energy. Wind farms are scattered throughout the valley, and a community solar electric project gives Ellensburg residents an opportunity to invest in locally produced energy and receive a credit on their electric bill in return. Top: Central Washington University students take a stroll through downtown Ellensburg. Center: Patrons enjoy a cold brew at one of the local breweries in Ellensburg. Bottom: Ellensburg is a hub for music and art fans, offering visitors a variety of art galleries and opportunities to listen to live music throughout the year.

Cle Elum

A recreational mecca The city of Cle Elum, nestled amongst the eastern Cascades’ towering evergreens and located within sight of jagged peaks, has evolved since its incorporation in 1902 from a mining and logging town into a hub for Upper Kittitas County’s burgeoning recreation scene. Cle Elum boasts a population of about 1,870. The name Cle Elum derives from the Kittitas Native American word for “swift water,” a reference to the currents of the Cle Elum river. In the winter, skiers, snowmobilers and snowshoers still pass through town on their way to nearby Snoqualmie Pass or the backcountry of the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest. In the summertime, the town plays host to anglers, hikers, bikers and outdoor enthusiasts of nearly every variety. Within town, history and recreation often blend. Visitors can enjoy the Coal Mines Trail, a former railway bed that links the towns of Roslyn, Ronald and Cle Elum, as it meanders past the sites of several historical coal mines. Motorized vehicles are only permitted on the trail during winter months, when it opens for snowmobile use. The historic Carpenter House offers visitors a glimpse at life in early 20th century Cle Elum. The Historical Society also operates Cle Elum’s telephone museum, which documents the switch from manual phone service to automatic dialing. Coffee houses, restaurants and shops are spread throughout the streets of downtown Cle Elum. Some of the most popular draws include Owens Meat, a 100-plus year old meat market, Glondo’s Sausage Co., an old world-style Italian market, and the Cle Elum Bakery. Top: A picturesque scene of the Cle Elum river. Middle: A customer peers into the display case of delicious baked goods at the Cle Elum bakery.

Roslyn A Diamond in the rough

Roslyn started as a coal mining settlement in the late 1800s. Today, it is a well-preserved historic town with plenty of artists, small businesses and community volunteers. Roslyn’s history has followed a series of booms and busts. Between the late 1800s and 1910, the population of Roslyn swelled from a few hundred to more than 3,000 — its all-time high. The last coal mines shut down in 1963, and today the population is just under 1,000. Roslyn boomed again when the award-winning television show “Northern Exposure” came to town in 1990. The film crews and actors left when the show ended in 1995, but “Northern Exposure” gifts are still for sale at Cicely’s Gift Shop. Dedicated fans travel from all over the country for Moosefest, a “Northern Exposure” fan festival, and tourists take photos in front of the Roslyn Cafe mural in the summer. Today, 25 cemeteries highlight the city’s diversity and heritage, as do the Croatian Picnic, heritage dinners, Coal Miners Days and other yearly festivals. The town is bordered by a 300-acre, city-owned forest. Miles of nonmotorized trails wind through the mixed forest of pines and firs and connect with the nearby Coal Mines Trail, a five-mile railroad easement between Cle Elum and Ronald. The tall trees in the forest hide slag heaps and remnants of mining infrastructure. Other destinations near Roslyn include the Alpine Lakes Wilderness north of town and the Brick Saloon, which is the oldest continuously operating bar in the state. Top: The Roslyn Ridge rises above downtown Roslyn. Center: Live music adds to the atmosphere at the Roslyn Sunday Market. Bottom: The rustic charm of the historic NWI Building in Roslyn attracts visitors to its many shops.

Lower Kittitas county

Kittitas

Kittitas was founded as part of the westward expansion of the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific Railroads. The community was established in 1889 and was incorporated as a city within the state of Washington in 1931. Today, Kittitas is a friendly, hometown community.

MAke A stop

Vantage

The community of Vantage sits on a scenic bluff overlooking the Columbia River about 28 miles east of Ellensburg off Interstate 90. Vantage may have only 100 or so full-time residents, but it welcomes many more guests throughout the year. Through the summer, Vantage swells with people traveling to and from concerts at the Gorge Amphitheater near George, across the Columbia River in Grant County. The Ginkgo Petrified Forest Interpretive Center features displays on the geological history of the area and Native American culture, along with spectacular views of the Columbia River, Sentinel Gap and the surrounding Ice Age flood-carved basalt landscape. Petrified wood was discovered in the region in the early 1930s, leading to the creation of the state park.

Liberty

The 17-acre town site of Liberty, more than 10 miles northeast of Cle Elum off U.S. Highway 97 and along Liberty Road, once was a busy gold mining town in the late 1890s. There are still gold-mining claims in the area that are worked off-and-on by locals and out-of-towners. Visitors can pan for gold, but must be careful not to trespass on private property or a claim. The fire hall has an exhibit of historic photos of life in Liberty and information about local hard-rock mining. Gold from the Liberty area is seen. Photo by Rob Repin

The town was officially recognized as a historic district in 1974 and is surrounded by U.S. Forest Service lands that are known for great camping, hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling and four-wheel-drive trips in approved areas.

MAke A stop

Explore the Old Blewett Pass Highway during the summer. It parallels Highway 97 from Liberty to Leavenworth. You can explore the old summit, the old Blewett town site and Echo Point.

Ronald

Ronald is a jumping off point for outdoor enthusiasts venturing into the Lake Cle Elum area, Salmon la Sac or other parts of the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest and Alpine Lakes Wilderness. The tiny community has historical ties to the coal mining and logging industries, and Hawthorne Hall is often used for ethnic heritage celebrations.

Salmon la Sac has been a favorite recreation area for locals and visitors alike for generations. In the summer, there’s hiking, picnicking, kayaking, berry picking and camping. In the winter, there’s cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.

the history of Kittitas County

Kittitas County residents maintain a strong connection to their past, and a variety of museums and historic attractions celebrate the area’s history. As early as the 1700s, the Psch-wan-wappams, forerunners of the contemporary Yakama Nation, lived along the Yakima River and Kittitas Valley. The tribes who inhabited the valley were known as the Kittitas or Upper Yakama Indians. During the spring, the Kittitas Valley was one of only a handful of valleys in the state where tribes could dig for roots such as camas (also known as kamas or quamash) and kouse, both of which were staples in the Indian diet. As a result, the Kittitas Valley was a traditional gathering place for tribes east of the Cascades. By the 1860s, the first white settlers began to arrive, and several cattle ranchers established land claims. The first wheat crop was planted in 1868. William Bud Wilson built the first log cabin in 1868 where Ellensburg now stands, and AJ Splawn and Ben Burch moved a log house

to a spot nearby so they could open a store in 1870. In 1872, John A. Shoudy bought the store, called Robbers Roost, and 160 acres of land. Ellensburg was named after his wife, Mary Ellen, in 1875. A phoenix painted on the side of the Davidson building in downtown Ellensburg symbolizes the community’s rise from the ashes after a fire destroyed most of downtown in 1889. At the time, Ellensburg was in the running to be the state capital, a title which went to Olympia instead.

Meanwhile, the discovery of coal in Roslyn sparked a migration of immigrants from all over Europe to come work in the mines. Roslyn’s history has followed a series of booms and busts. Between the late 1800s and 1910, the population of Roslyn swelled from a few hundred to more than 3,000 — its all-time high. The last coal mines shut down

Kittitas County offers mountain bike enthusiasts plenty of challenging opportunities.

roAd & eAsy trAil ridiNg Kittitas County features several popular road biking loops of various distances.

The cle Elum Loop goes from Ellensburg to Cle Elum and back along State Routes 10 and 940 with some scenic views and climbs over 61 miles of road. The Double Loop Cemetery Road Ride is about half as long, but takes a figure-8 route from West Ellensburg Park to and through Thorp past the High Valley Cemetery. For great views of countryside with some elevation change, try the Badger Pocket loop, a 42-mile ride that takes riders into Ellensburg and Kittitas farmland. A similar route, the Look Loop, goes east from Ellensburg, north of Kittitas, and back.

north Fork Taneum is technically a trail, but with a minimal grade of no more than 2.2 percent. The wide and well-worn trail meanders through eclectic scenery, from rivers to forest and desert land. Head east on Interstate 90 and take exit 101 (Thorp Highway), turn left. The trailhead is just behind the Thorp Fruit Stand. Considered good for novices or just the laid back ride.

The John Wayne Pioneer Trail, which follows the old roadbed of the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific railroads, is another popular mountain biking spot. It stretches 300 miles from the western slopes of the Cascades to the Idaho border, and the 100mile portion that extends from Cedar Falls to the Columbia River is known as Iron Horse State Park. It has several access points in Kittitas County, including Hyak, Easton, Cle Elum, Thorp, Kittitas and Ellensburg. Included in the western portion of Iron Horse is a trip through the Snoqualmie Tunnel, a 2.3-mile tunnel that goes through Snoqualmie Pass.

MouNtAiN bikiNg The lower Taneum Ridge near the Teanaway provides a ride along a short stretch of creek, a climb to the top and a drop to the parking area. The trailhead starts at the Taneum Junction

campground. The stiff climb and loose/rutted/steep conditions going down make this route unsuitable for beginners.

In the Upper County, the Rat Pac Trail near Roslyn and Cle Elum is a four-mike downhill, fast, swoopy trail that’s been growing in popularity. It’s accessible via Cle Elum Flagpole Park and the Coal Mine Trail. Follow the trail until you get to Aliance Road, which crosses the trail, and turn north, or right.

The cooper River Trail travels for 10.8 miles through the Wenatchee National Forest. It uses about two miles of paved and gravel roads before it heads onto the Cooper River Trail. There are no extended climbs, which makes it great for the beginner to intermediate biker. Access the trail off of I-90 on exit 80, then take Bullfrog Road and head toward Salmon La Sac. For more information about mountain biking in the area, talk to the experts at the ReCycle Shop in Ellensburg or Northwest Bicycle Improvement Co. in Roslyn. The Evergreen Mountain Biking Alliance is another source of information. A new mountain bike skills park recently opened in at Rotary Park in Ellensburg.

MANAstAsh MetriC The Manastash Metric Bike Tour — often called “The Drier Ride” due to the complete absence of rain in the event’s 20-year history — is the first Saturday of October and provides riders a unique opportunity for a scenic ride while testing their endurance. Riders start and end at Mount Stuart Elementary School in Ellensburg and have two choices — ride a 50-kilometer route around the Ellensburg and Thorp area, or a 100-kilometer route to Cle Elum and back, and along the Yakima River. Proceeds benefit the Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) and Volunteer Center of Kittitas County. For more information, contact RSVP at 509-962-4311, or visit drier-ride.org.

This hike provides enough elevation gain to qualify as a workout, but wildflower enthusiasts will want to dawdle. The hike is considered difficult, however some trails are less steep than others. It is a six-mile roundtrip hike from the trail head to the top and back. There are two main trails to the top, the Westberg Trail, named after a popular Ellensburg coach, and the Boy Scout Trail, accessed further to the west after hiking along an irrigation ditch. There is a logbook at the top. From eastbound Interstate 90, exit 101 (Thorp Highway).

Davis Peak trail is an outstanding alpine hike which is 11 miles roundtrip with an elevation gain of 3,900 feet. The trail has great views from the trail and the old lookout site. It is a steep and strenuous hike, but worth the effort.

Umtanum Falls Ellensburg This one-mile, relatively flat trail ends at a 40-foot punchbowl waterfall, and is a favorite with locals. Hikers should be cautious about their footing, especially during the winter when there’s ice. Drive east on Interstate 90 to exit 109 in Ellensburg. At the end of the exit ramp, turn right to drive under the freeway and at 0.7 mile turn left at Umtanum Road at the traffic light. Stay on this road, which turns to gravel at 5.2 miles, for a total of 10 miles from the freeway exit. Discover Pass required.

Adventures on the

Many of the ponds are stocked by the Department of Fish and Wildlife and there are derbies and events at the lakes in the spring and summer. A license is required to legally fish in Washington, except for children under 14 years old. For those looking for fishing off the beaten track there are a multitude of lakes in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness Area.

FloAtiNg Floating the Yakima through the Yakima River Canyon is an awe-inspiring adventure. The canyon features massive and weathered basalt cliffs, rising above the river, and rolling, high shrub-steppe hills.

Kittitas Co. Sherrifs 509-925-8534

The stretch of river southeast of Ellensburg from Ringer Loop Road to the Roza Recreational Site sees the most float and raft traffic when temperatures rise in Central Washington.

Kittitas County offers unparalleled fishing opportunities, from fly fishing the Yakima to reeling in a rainbow at Fiorito.

Although a Yakima River float trip provides spectacular scenic views and wildlife viewing, it can be dangerous for those who don’t pay attention to common sense safety practices, recreational rules and hazardous river sites.

The Yakima River is a year-round fly-fishing destination. It is a catch-and-release river for wild trout. There are multiple fly fishing gear and guide services in the county, including Red’s Flyshop, Troutwater, The Evening Hatch, Worley-Bugger Fly Co., Ellensburg Angler, and Emerging River Guide Services.

Well before planning a trip, call the Kittitas County Sheriff’s Office marine patrol at 509-925-8534 to find out current river conditions and problem spots.

The Columbia River on the eastern edge of the county is also a prime spot for sturgeon, walleye, salmon and steelhead. In addition to the rivers and streams, the county is dotted with lakes. Lake fishing opportunities begin at Snoqualmie Pass with Keechelus and Kachess and continue through the lower valley. In the lower county, Mattoon Lake, Fiorito Lake and Lavender Lake are popular destinations, particularly for families with children. Other options? Cooper Lake, Easton Ponds, Kiwanis Ponds, Lost Lake and Quartz Creek Pond.

The nonprofit Kittitas County Field and Stream Club has produced a recreational users’ map of the Yakima River, and it is valuable for those boating, floating or rafting the river. The map, in a booklet form, is sold by a number of Kittitas County area retailers, including Mountain High Sports in Ellensburg, (509) 925-4626.


Floating the Yakima River is a favorite activity on hot summer days.

The Columbia River is another place visitors and locals enjoy spending hot summer days.

The Roza Recreation area between Yakima and Ellensburg on

The area’s many lakes and rivers offer exciting boating, kayaking and, in designated areas, jet skiing.

The columbia River east of Ellensburg is a favorite in the summer with boaters, jet skiers and water skiers. Multiple boat launches are available in the Vantage area.

the Yakima Canyon is a good spot for boating and water sports. Motorized vessels are permitted from the Roza boat launch down to the Roza dam. Upstream from the launch is limited to non-motorized boats only.

lake cle Elum eight miles northwest of Cle Elum is a good spot for water sports. Boat launch sites are available.

lake Easton is a popular destination for fishing, boating, kayaking, canoeing and paddle boarding during the summer.

From late December through as late as early April, state Fish and Wildlife Department personnel daily provide hay to a herd of elk at the end of Watt Canyon Road, 15 miles northwest of Ellensburg.
