Any info about closure dates for the Yakima Training Range segment this summer?

Go do it. May /June is the perfect time not to hot and very lush and green. I rode it on a gravel drop bar bike with 2” tires and it was the perfect bike. There are some wet marshy section that we’re rideable but wet and muddy and definitely ride the Rock lake section that’s says is a detour. I found a spring about half way up the lake. The lake is not accessible because of cliffs. So the spring was a welcomed find. And in Rosalia there’s a great pizza place that makes a five pound Calzone.

Just finished riding from Rattle snake lake to Tekoa. I avoided the section from Beverly to Warden. Went up through the seep lakes part of the cross Washington route. There’s a guy named Devon who lives in Vantage that drove me across the 1-90 Columbia river crossing for 20 bucks. His phone number is 509 396 4263. It’s well worth it and he’s glad to help out.

Has anybody explored getting permission to cross Wanapun Dam?

I am biking the trail from Rattlesnake Lake to Vantage for the third year in a row, 4 of us on the trip. We do the trip in 3 days stopping at Lk, Easton state park on night 1, KOA in ellensburg on night 2 and then to vantage on the third day, picked up by one of our very thoughtful spouses! All of us on the trip have talked about how it would be so great if we could keep going further east by crossing the Beverly bridge. This could be such an amazing resource if we could just put the few missing pieces together.

I am an avid biker and am currently planning a ride along the eastern portion of the JWPT. Crossing the Columbia is a MAJOR issue. My best option currently is to ride to Vantage and try to hitch a ride in the back of a truck across the I-90 bridge. This doesn't seem like the best plan but what are my other options?

The Beverly Bridge would be a game changer for accessing the eastern trail. I think people would come just to cross the bridge.

Why can't we just reopen Wanapum Dam crossing and begin working on Beverly Bridge deck? Someone told me the local Tribe might be still using Wanapum Dam crossing?

I ride the western portion of the JWPT frequently, and have began making an annual trip to Ellensburg and back, adding more and more people to the trip every year. The ONLY thing keeping us from the east side is the lack of a safe passage across the river. We toyed with the idea of crossing I-90 but there is no shoulder and the traffic and winds can be very dangerous. Give touring cyclists (and Horseback riders and cross-country hikers) a safe way to cross and trail use on the east side will increase.

My husband and I love doing long rail to trails. We are looking into the JWPT for summer 2018. I have some questions: First, Is camping the only option in the eastern section of the trail? Secondly, Is there a way around the marsh between Lone Pine and Tekoa? It just doesn't seem like our cup of tea. Camping, yes-marsh, no. Thanks for any input!
