Need to Know
This newly-opened landscape provides a 100% runnable trail.
Once on top, the 360-degree views are spectacular. Follow the ridge west toward the summit of Cowiche Mountain and get a unique view into West Valley, Yakima, Union Gap, Tieton, Naches and Selah valleys - as well as the beautiful Cowiche Canyon.
From the summit, retrace your steps back along the ridge but then descend the alternating smooth/rocky singletrack switchback trail Upper TNT on the north side for a fast, fun descent. Connect back over to the initial climb/doubletrack trail via Hey Hey Hey Huh and then cross over Doubletrack and connect the eastern trails (Green Harvester) for more smooth singletrack exploration. All trails in this lower half lead back to the trailhead.
