You should check out Hwy 2 through Leavenworth or maybe 410. Only ones I can think of!

Not many options between SEA and ELN. I guess if you do not want to ride I90 you can always go over Stevens Pass, a nicer ride but significantly longer, then over 97 to E'burg and then the Canyon to Yakima.

If you want longer routes there is White Pass and even longer the Columbia River on the Washington side and then up through Goldendale. Fun rides but definitely not a practical way to get to Yakima-but if practicality is not an issue you got lots of options.

That's all I got-enjoy your Easter ride.

PS based on what I heard on the news 410 will not be open looks like they are talking about opening closer to Memorial Day or so I heard.

You can get off I-90 in Cle Elum and take HWY 10 along the Yakima river to EBRG then cruise through town and hit Canyon Road then the back road into Selah and back onto the freeway to Yakima. Doesn't add too much more time and it's a nice ride.

^ That

If you take the Denny Creek / Asahel Curtis turnoff on I90 just before the pass, you can take the old road (NFD 5800) up between the E and W lanes to Alpental road at the top.

Tinkham road runs up the valley on the west side to Denny Creek, but it's gravel with lots of potholes. Will mostly be mud this time of year.

used to be that the Canyon Rd was patrolled heavily, bet it still is.
just saying, 'be aware.' still the best riding route between the 2 cities.

local back roads through Cle Elum and E-burg.
I would suggest exiting at West Nelson off of I-90 (exit 74) follow winding 2 lane road into South Cle Elum, Cle Elum and then S/R 10 along the Yakima river or even my top secret route...west nelson to upper Peoh Point road which parrallels I-90 to Elk Heights (exit 93). Continue east on the county road down through Rocky Canyon to the intersection at east Tanuem Road. Turn left at the "T" intersection and stay on the road to the next "T" intersection on Thorp Hwy. Turn left to intersect s/r 10 or turn right to drive through Thorp, cross I-90 near the fruitstand and stay on the windy road which will bring you back to I-90 at Ellensburg's west interchange at exit 109 0n I-90. Ride I-90 east for 3 miles and exit to canyon road and continue to Yakima. Safe Journey and if you ride s/r 10 and canyon road watch for deer!

Yes. It says 45mph. They WILL pull you at 51 if they're bored.


Just a heads up.
