Palouse to Cascades Trail West of Ellensburg
« on: October 09, 2021, 12:27:27 pm »
Has anyone actually ridden this with a loaded touring bike? I want to finish my TransAM tour along this route and will be hitting it at the end with a loaded Disc Trucker running 1.75 tires.

From the latest pictures it looks like a loose gravel surface, but the question is how deep does the loose go? It looks like there are hard packed travel lanes in most places.

I know East of Ellensburg, all the way to the Idaho border, is pretty unrideable on a touring bike but I had read heading West from Ellensburg was quite doable.
