Day Hike - Umtanum Ridge

A 16 mile, 3500' adventure on old roads, an off-trail portion, and along the Umtanum Ridge. There should be lots of flowers! An approximation of the route

  • Strenuous
  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 16.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 3,400 ft
  • Pace: 2-2.25 MPH average moving speed

9:30 at the trailhead 3/10 mile past/west of the Untanum Creek Falls Trailhead, This link is exactly where you want to go-  No privy, Discover Pass required.    

2-2.25 MPH average moving speed, most of the tread will be fast. At least a mile of the old road portion is overgrown. You can see where you're going, but you're walking through flowers and grasses (sometimes tall). I have not been on all of this route; this will be somewhat exploratory. There could be ticks or rattlesnakes.
