    Snow at 4000'. Coming from 410 last Monday. It will be a while yet before you get past the T at 7030/7036, and then of course it gets higher from there...

    Yeah, mine too from the opposite side. And you're on! That creek crossing out of Easton ought to be doable by what, late September sometime? :lol3

    Well checked Cabin Creek today and I ain't crossing it! Checked one of my alternate routes through Cole Butte today. 5000ft snowline right where my trail starts and need to go a couple hundred up, to get over to the other side. Loggers were starting a section by there today and it was mixed rain and snow... Man I got a couple of weeks before I can even get to the big climb

    There are some.... coming from Naches? No completely legal ways anymore but depending on what you ride it can be done.

    Not sure about a FS 74 road If you can make it to Easton hit the R/R tracks to West Nelson Rd then slab to Golf Course Rd. You can go around to South Cle Elum or a short cut to Bullfrog which I won't divulge on the open forum as it is a bit on the illegal side......

    Aren't those railroad tracks a bit on that side also? I've looked that way and rubbed my chin about it more than a few times....

    Its taking me awhile to figure it out but there are many ways to Taneum from 70. It all depends on what you are riding. Fs roads, slab, single track and jeep trails. I like to study as many different maps as I can get my hands on, along with some good exploring not to mention Google Earth and a tasty one at WJ's.
