Destination rides involve 3-8hrs of driving from metro areasso listings need to meet the following criteria:• So don't underestimate it like this young man who did but fortunately lived to tell about it: The good news is, no reports of injuries have been made on the trail to the lower falls, and the Forest Service is planning a re-route of the trail to the upper falls, which should make them vastly more accessible. The tunnel itself is open although the army has recently put in some concrete barriers to keep vehicles out.
BTW there is almost no cell phone coverage out here when you need it most. As for us we rocked the trail. A Discover Pass is required to park at the South Cle Elum Depot.
At one point I sat in the entrance of Tunnel 47 to cool off and we poured water over my head. The trail ends at the scenic Cool Springs Overlook with views of the Holly Creek Valley and Cohutta Mountains. Starting in Cle Elum it is just shy of 19 miles. The only cost for the permits is the reservation fee charged by Recreation. The river drops around 600 feet in about a half mile. 1900 before the now dead-ended trail continues under the freeway I-90.
Every GE photo of the JWPT beyond the river shows people walking. By the late 1980s, the US Forest Service owned the land around the falls. There are good views up and down the pass from there.
I spent the night at a motel in Eastern Cle Elum.
Most of the day-use sites are also good places to launch a non-motorized, beachable boat.
621227 Instead of a steep uphill hike or pedal, why not just drive up to the trail? See our header image for an example of people enjoying the new trail! Directions: At Traffic Light 8 in Gatlinburg, TN turn off the Parkway onto Historic Nature Trail Road.
