Starting in Cle Elum at 2nd and Stafford streets, the trail gradually ascends to the town of Roslyn. The trail is shaded by tall deciduous trees and it feels like you are in a peaceful forest, even though you are still in town. The trail enters Roslyn, crosses highway 903, goes up Washington Ave. and beside Pioneer Park. It then travels parallel to Horvatt Road and again crosses highway 903 (watch for cars -- the traffic is fast at this point). Continuing through an evergreen forest, the trail ends in Ronald, just off the highway beside Ronald General Store. Be sure to check out the historical sites -- there are many along the trail.

More an easy walking trail than a hike. Pretty with the leaves changing but tons of poop everywhere! I think it was horse poop, watch your step!

This pin is misplaced. The trail is more like a greenway.

If you are looking for an in-town hike this is perfect. It's easy to find and fun for all ages! The trail does back up to houses on both sides.. But bushes and trees try and make in secluded. Such a beautiful town! Very pretty:)

This pin is misplaced. Park at 1st and Statford and cross the street to enter the trail at the trailhead. Nice walking trail. No views aside from the back of people's houses. I should say we only walked 2 miles in before turning around.
