    Directions to Trailhead

    The Coal Mines Trail stretches 10.1 km between Roslyn and Cle Elum, offering many opportunities for recreation. Hikers along this trail will feel more like walkers with its flat nature, but for a walk in nature that doesn’t feel far from town, this is a good pick. Keep dogs on leash and watch for bikes and horses, remembering to give equestrians the right of way where possible.

    Route Description for Coal Mines Trail

    The Coal Mines Trail is more of a town-to-town nature walk than a true hike, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a lovely day on it. This flat, even pathway is surrounded by pretty trees and a stream. Expect bikes, horses, runners, and walkers to all be sharing the trail.

    From the trail’s start in Cle Elum, follow the wide gravel pathway. Before leaving, check out the informational sign that talks about the mines here in days past.

    It’s a straight shot to Roslyn, which has a historic cemetery and some cute shops and cafes. Of course, you don’t need to go the entire way—feel free to turn around and head back into town whenever you’ve had your fill.
