View Full Version : Looking for info on 608
I am looking for Rimrock trail info. I need info on 608 from 1201 to 613.
We went to Rimrock November 27th, 2005 to find out more info on 608 because we want to go up it from Rimrock to the Ahtanum. It looks to me that 608 is in three parts. We know you can get to the part that goes by Kloochman Rock off of 1201.
We ran 1201 road past 609 and 653 to close to the end where we think is the start of 608, but couldn't find the trail markers.
The snow got to deep to move without running high RPMs. So we turned around there and came back down until we found a good hill for the kids to sled. That was at 653 which I think is the trail to 608a. That is what the new map shows.
The kids played a little and then we headed down to the Rimrock Lake. We took 570 down to 1200 Road. We drove out on the Peninsula. I took pictures of Louie Way Gap & Divide Ridge to see what we will have to climb when on 608 to get up to 613 on the top.
Divide Ridge / Kloochman Rock / Louie Way Gap from Rimrock Lake
We will try that climb hopefuly in July 2006 after the snow melts and the trail drys up some.
Here is a little more info:
On 1201 between lower 608 and 609, the Motorcycle trail 1126 will cross 1201.
That is on all my maps. Somewhere going up 608, Motorcycle trail 1126 will join with 608. It will turn off 608 near the top of Louie Way Gap before 613. I seen the trail marker and took a picture. At this point Motorcycle trail 1126 is not on any off my maps. If you see this marker you are on the right trail.
You know you made it to the top of Louie Way Gap and at end of 608 when you get the intersection where 613 crosses. If you keep going straight you will come out on DNR road C1000. Turn to the right and follow it and you will come out on the North Fork Ahtanum Rd. (The paved part). Take a left there to go to Tampico and out to Yakima/Union Gap.

what info did you need
i actually made the mistake and went up the 7th of feb and hiked up 608, turns out there was around 3 ft of snow, i kept fallin through but the dog made it alright. its a short trail, i mapped it out on my gps, only like 2 miles. a couple of giant holes, they are going to be a mess this spring. this was the jeep at the slab that day, the pic was taken labor day weekend when everything had dried up this spring. it could kill some rigs whens its full

We would like to hear from someone who has made it up from 1201. I have only been on the top half of that section of 608. It was a good steep climb back up as you can see in this picture.

HI, new here, we run louise way a few times a year.fun trail few tough climbs,with a few off camber spots, trees will keep you on 2 wheels.pretty togh when its wet, but fun. To get to louise way you need to go up the road from were the 608 trail with the small pile of rocks across it probably 1-2 miles. you can either go to the left to the lake and cabin is and go up that way, pretty tight, cant remember road #, sorry. or go to the end of gravel rd and hit trail from there. i dont think there is a trail marker there, you will drive in a bit down through a water way and veers off to the left. when your fsj comes close to rubbing a few trees just before you head down the loose rock hill you are on the trail. a few hours later, depending on 3 of rigs and weather you might get to the top. the first hill you come to is rutted out pretty bad, the top is do able with a little speed and keeping to the left. if it wet going to need a winch. next time you start to climb dont let out of the throttle, cause when you think you are at the top it keeps going. long climb with rocks one well placed tree and root with some tight tuns and a little off camber. after the top of that you will come out into some clearings below the ridge. then one more loose rock hill and some tight tree afterwards and you are at the top.
Thanks for the excellent info :!:
Very much appreciated.
