Cle-Elum Lake Loop

So I put together this loop and was wondering if anyone knows if it's possible or have done this ride. Have 3 days and will camp along the way. Check out the attachment.

This part looks more like a hiking trail than a road or moto singletrack. Could be possible, but pretty challenging. The part just East of there looks possibly worse.

New desert racing frontiers
It will be Devilish !

Take a look at profile, looks more like Class what ever rock climb with ropes not hiking trail. A really good rider could probably get his Hog thru but not with sidecar attached.

One problem with all current maps, they don't show Wilderness or new Travel Management legal routes.

Most of your proposed route is OK, but some in the Northeast is not open to motorized vehicles and for good reason. I'm on the Kittitas Search/Rescue and we went up last summer to get to of my friends that got stranded on 450 KTMS and spent the night.

You are basically OK heading north on the Middle Fork until about Way Creek. Just getting that far up the Middle Fork, you will have crossed the river 18 times.

At that point, you need to get over to either Jungle Creek or the Johnson-Medra Trail and hit the North Fork road. Use the road to go up to the De-Roux Trail and then back on your route. Go past Gallagher Head Lake and head down Fortune Creek - Don't try Boulder Creek.....(I have a story)

This will still be no walk in the park.......Steep, narrow parts on Way Creek, Jungle Creek and De-Roux Creek trails....At times, trail is 12 inches wide and straight down 100 feet to the river if you go off.....Tight Switchbacks, etc. - Trail advice and ratings:

You don't need 3 days, It's a one day ride....Do between July 15 and Sept when the snow is gone and the rivers/creeks are low...

I have a cabin over looking Lake Cle Elum (hence my screen name) and ridden the area since 1970...

Let us know what you ride, I could show you better trails.....Good luck..
