This trail is west of Ellensburg and is snowfree and wildflowers just starting to come out.

Trail stats: 1700 foot gain and just 4.2 miles roundtrip. About 0.3 miles into the hike there is a fork and you can take left or right - they both go up to same spot. I took the right fork. Here is the track. Also note on the way down, about 400 feet from the top, is the Scout trail (not marked) that goes through a pine forest and takes you back to the trailhead, however I did not take this but just received information. This trail is just west of the trail we went up.
