Umtanum Ridge Trail

Umtanum Ridge Trail Professional Review and Guide

"May is the best time to see flowers on the east side of the Cascades. The L. T. Murray Wildlife Recreation Area is nestled in the Yakima River Canyon, a geologic blend of basalt cliffs and desert hills that rise above the river between Yakima and Ellensburg. The L. T. Murray Wildlife Area is on the west side of the river. It is administered by the state Department of Fish and Wildlife.

In addition to prolific wildflower displays that change week by week in spring, this region is also a good place to observe wildlife. Several trails are suitable for hikers, some easier than others. Most trails here are unsigned but obvious and easy to follow. Experienced hikers can also hike cross-country to one or several high points along Umtanum Ridge."
