CCC maintains over 30 miles of trails for hiking, biking, running, horseback riding, and snowshoeing.

“I’m from Seattle and visited the Cowiche Mountain section twice this late March/April. I just want to say you have done a great job in balancing conservation and recreation. The trail system is great, the variety of plant life is terrific.”

CURRENT TRAIL CONDITIONS & CLOSURES:

CLOSURE (1/23/22): All single track trails at Rocky Top are CLOSED due to mud. Closure protects fragile trails and lands from damage. Rocky Top trails will likely re-open on April 1, after winter damage is repaired. 

PLEASE NOTE: We will be monitoring CCC trail conditions for mud. If you find significant mud, please let us know, and turn around to prevent trail damage. Thank you!
