Radar Time
      XC trails SW of Ellensburg. Accessed from the north off Cove/Manastash Rd intersection or from the south off Umptanum Rd 3.5 miles past the end of the pavement. Trails here are mostly buff and easy single track but can be pedally due to elevation If it is rated a blue, often it's due to minor rocky areas or percent grade for the climbing. The first 1/2 mile from the Cove Rd. parking area (kiosk trailhead) is shared use and very rocky and steep. Grind past the yuck to get to the goods! Smile, say hello and give other users plenty of notice.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
