What to Bring

Human and animal traffic moving along the Towns to Teanaway trails can spread noxious weeds! Let's do our part to keep the trails clear, and care for the land they cross.

For safety, volunteers are required to wear:

  • Long pants made of sturdy material
  • Sturdy, close-toed shoes
  • Gloves (provided)

In addition, we recommend that participants bring:

  • Rain gear and/or sun protection
  • Bug repellent
  • Long sleeved shirt
  • At least one full water bottle
  • Small daypack for snacks/food as needed, extra layers, etc…
Where to Meet and Parking Information
From I-90: Take exit 85 (Cle Elum) and continue east on W 1st St for .6 miles. Turn left on Statford St, and immediately left onto W 2nd St for 1.6 miles. Turn right onto Alliance Rd and park at the end of the road.

Located just a latte away from Seattle, the mountain communities of Ronald, Roslyn and Cle Elum are experiencing a steadily growing stream of visitors seeking connection with the outdoors. Recreational tourism generates $305 million annually within Kittitas County, supporting approximately 1,700 local jobs. As these numbers grow, so does the need for a well-designed trail system that can absorb user impacts, direct visitors away from wildlife habitat and sensitive areas, keep ongoing maintenance costs low, and connect the downtown centers with nearby public lands. Since 2017, the Greenway Trust has chaired the Implementation Group dedicated to designing, constructing, and maintaining such a trail system.
