Washington Taking the wife to the green dots

Recommended Posts

that is the area that omt rides. he usually accesses it via clockum rd from the east. depending on where you're coming from would probably dictate where to access it from. i'm not super-familiar with the area. probably best to print out the map and just go exploring. that's usually the most fun anyway. let us know how it goes.

Yep, that is the Green Dots I ride. There are three Green Dot areas in Eastern Washington but this is the best of them. Take your wife on the upper forest roads and keep away from the desert unless she is very experienced.

She is definitely not experienced. Why the need to keep away from the desert?

What are you thoughts on taking her NW on Naneum Ridge Road from Colockum Road?

Thanks for the advice

There are some pretty rocky areas in the desert that can require a bit of skill.

The Naneum Ridge road can take you to some interesting areas. If you take the Swift creek road off of the Naneum Ridge road it opens up a lot of possibilities. Slow and easy cause you will be riding a few rocky spots on the Colockum Pass road but not the same kind of stuff you find in the desert.

Second thought about the desert. If you stage just off the Vantage Hwy, about 10 miles from Vantage. There is a lot of moderately easy desert riding that you both might enjoy.

The roads around Vantage look interesting, and easier to get to. Wonder what the odds are of the Ellensburg DNR office having a map of the area? I will have to give them a call.

Agree with OMT some of the routes there are very rocky and all have some rocky sections.

Another area to consider is south of Ellensburg off the Old Durr Rd. Except for one or two exceptions fewer rocks.

Print out a map from an earlier post.

Upper green dots in the treelines are pure fun and the least rocky. Some good views up there looking east.

Are you referring to the green dots off of the old vantage highway, or off Colockum road?

@pdiddy,

Are your bikes plated?

No, thus the need to ride on the green dots.

Colockum or Parke Rd access points.

Keep in mind the next few weeks, those upper roads are going to be crawling with hunters as deer and elk season quickly approach.
