Coal Mines Trail

Connecting the towns of Cle Elum, Roslyn, and Ronald through central Washington forests, the Coal Mines Trail passes small mountains of tailings and other vestiges of the area’s mining heritage. Running along the former Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway, this wide and relatively flat route is great for hikers, runners, bicyclers, equestrians, and cross-country skiers.

The Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust helped local communities purchase the railroad right-of-way and then build this popular trail.
