I took off just outside of Kittitas, WA and headed up to Haney Meadows which is southeast of Blewett Pass. I knew there was a road that would take me there, but I didn't know which one. I thought I found it a few weeks ago, but about three feet of snow blocked my way. I headed up there last Friday hoping the snow would be gone. All the snow had melted and it was actually dry.



The logging road I was on turned into a ORV trail. Most of my 55 mile ride was easy, but about two miles of it was steep gravelly hills. The TW pushed me up all of them, but I did have a little tire spin.



This was the steepest hill:





On top of the first and longest hill, I found this American flag that someone has propped up. Just to the east of me (behind me, picture faces west) is Mission Ridge ski area and Wenatchee Mountain.







Just above my seat and behind the hills is Wenatchee, WA:







I made it to Haney Meadow. I saw this sign and chuckled because the TW traveled this road flawlessly.

An old cabin adjacent to the meadow. Behind the cabin is a large and very popular horse camp:







Couldn't go around or over this tree, so I made a ramp to go over it.

where did you start from. I assume you trailered the bike to start??? Any GPS tracks to share? Looks like you had a good time. Did you go alone?

I started at a place called the "Orchard" just north of Kittitas on Coleman Creek Road. I did haul my bike in my truck to get there. I did go alone as my Dad was unable to go and I had an itch to ride and explore.



Here is my track in dark purple. It was an out and back:







Here is a close up of the Haney Meadow area:







The straight line on the upper left is because my GPS lost satellite reception and then regained it.



I was actually on Road 9712 or Liberty-Beehive Road.

Boy, that looks like a really great place to ride. I'm sure the photo's don't do the place justice. Couple weeks ago I had a similar experience with a "log jam", but the log was larger and unless I did an Evel Knievel act, I was unable to proceed.



Great picture's of the area. Thanks for sharing.



On a side note, assuming your route picture is mapsource, what procedure did you use to post it in your thread here? Thanks.

Admiral, you're right, the photos really don't do it justice.



I use Garmin's Basecamp. You can download a free basic version, but I got the better one with some software I bought for my GPS. All I do is take a simple screen shot and upload it to Photobucket.

I was just up in that area a few months ago trying my luck with the weather for backpacking (didn't work so well). I am wanting to go somewhere this next weekend and I think I may have found the spot... Thanks!
