  • Winter Scramble
  • Mileage: 10.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 4,300 ft
7:00 AM at Cayuse Camp Ground beyond Salmon La Sac
Jolly Mtn is 12 miles and 4,400ft elevation gain (with some ups & downs along the ridge lines) so there will be plenty of cardio and thigh burn with potential for views of the Teanaways including the Mt. Stuart range. Because the days are still plenty short, we will plan on an early start, arriving at the Cayuse Campground up the Salmon La Sac road by 6:45AM with a plan to be walking shortly after 7am. Sunrise is a little after 7:30am. Google maps indicates about 110 miles and 2 hrs & 15 minutes drive time from the 65th P&R; so those interested in carpooling should plan on meeting at 4:30AM. We’ll be parking at the Cayuse Campground ungroomed sno-park and a sno-park permit is required . For those unfamiliar with the TH, Take Exit 80 off of I-90 and head north on Bullfrog Road. You will hit two traffic circles on the way to Roslyn. In both traffic circles focus on heading directly to Roslyn (not Suncadia Resort or Cle Elum). Once in Roslyn go through the town on Route 903 (Salmon La Sac Road) and stay on it for approximately eleven miles. You will go well past Cle Elum Lake and will then be driving near Salmon la Sac River. Stay on the Salmon la Sac Road until the turnoff for the Cayuse Campground. There will be a parking area on the side of the road.
