That whole Cle-elum area gets pretty crowded all year, if you have a rig that will fit on the trails you can camp up the trails and have a good chance of being alone.Do you guys know how busy it gets up there during the 4th? I want to go up on the 3rd but don’t want it to be jam packed.
Just looking for some secluded overland camping areas
I did it from salmon la sac (turned off at 47.479861 -121.044444) and went almost up to the lake a few weeks ago, but had to turn back due to time constraints. My stock 4Runner did great, you just need to take your time and watch your lines carefully in a few spots.
you are looking at 15-30 to the trailhead from the pavement ending and Hour+ each way on the trail if you haul I would budget 1.5-2 hours each direction on the trail if you want to take it slower.Can you give an estimate of how long it takes (conservatively) to get up there from Salmon La Sac? I’d like to go before the end of the summer and would like to plan accordingly.
Thank you for the info. I look forward to hopefully making it out there sometime before October.The second trail is the 160 or fortune Creek trail, 47.479861 -121.044444 is the turn off to the 301, the 160 is the next road branching off past that but I don't have those coordinates
